Obama defends remarks as opponents attack

PITTSBURGH (Reuters) - U.S. Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama spent a fourth day on Monday defending himself for calling people in small towns with economic blight "bitter" in a controversy that rival Hillary Clinton is trying to use for a comeback.

Republican John McCain sought political gain from the flap, saying it is the people from small towns in America who survived the Great Depression, fought in World War Two and built a strong postwar economy who are the "heart and soul of this country."

I'm not bitter. I'm just disappointed.
