154. I am an Obama supporter and I think you're right about her intended meaning
I think there is a lot of phony outrage and barely disguised glee among the pundits, in particular, over this gaffe. The media have absolutely zero credibility when it comes to gauging the Clintons. She seems to have been almost innocently making the point about how often in the past nominations continued into June and beyond. The RFK reference seems to have been merely about the unpredictability of outcomes even this late, not a wink to all those who fear for Obama's life. She's just as vulnerable as he is, after all, to blind hatred from weapons owners.

I don't blame Obama supporters, however, for being shocked, outraged and disgusted by this clumsy analogy of Clinton's. She should have been more careful with her words and examples (especially considering the inaptness of the historical comparison between this election cycle and that one).

But I do tip my hat to you, bigtree, for your courage in defending her. :toast:
