Reject vs. Denounce...

Come on! Senator Clinton is grasping for straws on this one...

In the debate on MSNBC tonight, Senator Obama Denouced Farrakhan's support, but Hillary wanted him to reject it. Barak looked at Hillary just confused about why she was pushing this as he just Denounced the support and strongly was critical of Farrakhan.
Obama said "I have been very clear in my denunciation of him and his past statements. I did not solicit this support."
If the word reject is stronger than the word denounce, I will reject and denounce and concede the point, Obama said.
"Good, good," Clinton said.
The audience laughed.

Well, what is the difference?
