23. Keep reaching.
She made a comment that now causes Obama's campaign to take time out of their packed schedules to address; that kind of attack from a fellow party member is not only uncalled for but fair game to be used later by your opponents. Really, how hard is it to acknowledge that the comment would come back to haunt her and the Party?
