Foul ....and one

You've got to check out Brother Buck's cartoon.

For a person who claims she has so much more experience and is so much more ready to lead than her primary opponent, Hilary Clinton sure does put her foot in her mouth a lot.

“You know my husband did not wrap up the nomination in 1992 until he won the California primary somewhere in the middle of June, right?” she said. “We all remember Bobby Kennedy was assassinated in June in California.”

I don't know. I mean I sort of understand her point as Wyclef would say Anything can Happen right? Still to bring up the specter of assassination in a race against an opponent who was given secret service protection the earliest any candidate has ever been in the history of US elections has got to be one of the dumbest things you could possibly do.

It shows how desperate and frazzled Hillary really is in my opinion. The race for her is over, she's just shell shocked and refusing to let go of a claim she thought was her birthright.

I know earlier in the campaign I read that certain older black folks were afraid to vote for Obama cause they were afraid that they were putting him in harms way. I don't really subscribe to that logic but every time I see him giving one of those speeches I emotionally brace myself for the possibility that shots could ring out. I hope and pray they don't but as ya never know right. Got lots of folk out there who are not pleased that a black man is this close to the democratic nomination. Its just the reality.

Still you don't want to hear your opponent bringing up that possibility cause it almost seems like they are hoping that that is what happens. Actually its just a poor comment regardless of its intention. A silly silly comment.

Hillary we're tired of your excuses for staying in the race so long. You're just playing the spoiler now. It almost looks like you are trying to muddy the waters for your fellow democrat. But do what you feel to do. All I can say is both you and Bill showed a wicked and dirty side this election so we're taking back our first black president moniker.

She should bow out, just as she would expect Obama to do were he in her same situation.

She's clearly running out of things to say, and is now just saying anything that pops into her head.

Frankly, I don't see the relevance of the statement.

Overheard on some tv programme..."America Idol takes forever to choose a cruise singer so let Hilary(and the elction process) draw it out as long as they want"

I think her and Michelle should have a fight..if she wins she can stay in...until the final primary results are in. If Michelle wins she has to bow out while wearing an Obama '08 t-shirt.

I share the same feeling watching those speeches....

Bill makes me laugh, crying foul...

The world is waiting for them to gracefully bow out, why can't they take a hint?

I never really had any great affection for Hillary before this election but her dirty politics have seriously tarnished her reputation. Although I believe she would have been shouting from mountaintops for Obama to drop out if the roles were reversed, I kinda like her digging her own grave until the bitter end.
