Ferraro must be laughing her ass off.....
Edited on Sat Mar-15-08 12:39 PM by Flabbergasted
"I really think they're (Obama campaign) attacking me because I'm white. How's that."

"They should apologize to me."

Everyone was saying this lady is off her meds, she's crazy, she's angry.

No, we've just seen a splendidly played bait and switch, in perhaps the only way this issue could have been presented to the public and made to stick.

Suddenly Ferraro is vindicated, at least with white folks.

Brilliant, atrocious race baiting Clinton.

1. At least they played it now.
They were probably sitting on it, waiting until a week before the primary to release it. But Ferraro's comments were damaging Hillary in the polls, so she had to release this now.

2. The Hillary campaign is desperate to make Obama the "Black" candidate
Edited on Sat Mar-15-08 12:23 PM by Quixote1818
They want to turn him into Al Sharpton. They are obsessed with Obama being black. I thought Obama's camp should have stayed away from the Ferraro gaff. The next time the Clinton camp makes a racist statement to goat the Obama camp into responding, so they can say "They always scream racism!" The Obama camp should let it pass.

4. It wouln't have worked, if the racism wasn't there to begin with.
That's the most troubling part about Hillary's cynical campaign. She has a low opinion of the voters, and she's tapping into their fear & negativity. And it's working. Fuck all.
