381. The reaction to this is way over the top
She made a mistake. She was obviously referencing the late date in which the '68 race was decided - when Bobby was shot the winner of the Dem nomination was still seriously in doubt. Humphrey was busy gathering the "super-delegates" of the time and Gene McCarthy was waging a fierce battle with his young campaign workers and had won several states - if you want an analogy, McCarthy was probably more like Barack than Bobby was.

Hillary is my Senator and I'm sick of her - it's time to end this thing. I'm 100% for Barack and I'm already organizing for him in the GE. But who here truly thinks Hillary was saying she was staying in because Barack might be assassinated? Sure, sure. Get real. :eyes:
