    ALBANY, N.Y. - Sen. Hillary Clinton's Republican challenger on Monday flatly denied telling a reporter that Clinton was unattractive when she was younger and suggesting she had had "millions of dollars" of "work."

    John Spencer, a former Yonkers mayor, acknowledged talking to the reporter during a flight on Friday but said he didn't make the statements attributed to him in Monday's New York Daily News.

    "It's a fabrication. I would never call Hillary Clinton ugly," Spencer told The Associated Press. "That's outrageous. I didn't do it."

    The reporter, Ben Smith, told the AP that Spencer made the comments as Spencer, his wife and Smith sat together. He said he didn't tape-record the comments but did take notes.

    "You ever see a picture of her back then? Whew. I don't know why Bill married her," The Daily News quoted Spencer as saying about Clinton.

    Spencer said Clinton looks different now, chalking it up to "millions of dollars" of "work," according to the tabloid.

    "She looks good now," he is quoted as saying.

    Clinton adviser Howard Wolfson said Clinton has had no plastic surgery or similar appearance-enhancing work.

    "Sadly, this is just the latest in a long line of insulting and offensive comments that John Spencer has made throughout his career, and it's unfortunate that he has chosen to run a campaign based on personal attacks," the Clinton aide said.

    Polls have shown Clinton far ahead of Spencer in the Senate race.

    In their second debate on Sunday, Spencer said he "liked" Clinton and that she would make a "tremendous" candidate for president, although he also said he would never vote for her.

    The Clintons recently celebrated their 31st wedding anniversary. She turns 59 on Thursday.

    Clearly, he can't be sued for libel.

    Too bad he is on the defensive now, it is a losing proposition for him. She can now play the innocent hurt female card with some effect.

    I've always thought if I were president, even if I were ugly, I could do better than Bill. Neither his wife nor his "side thing" were attractive at all.

    I mean, most powerful man in the free world thing goin for you and you can't even get quality stuff. How pathetic is that?

    Even Rick Ocasek and Mick Jagger got playboy centerfold quality women and they're among the ugliest of all mankind.
