So yesterday, when Senator Hillary Clinton was explaining why she was still remaining in the race, even despite the fact that it is a logistic impossibility for her to gain the nominating, referenced the RFK assassination. Here is the run down in simple terms with a few quotes thrown in:
Barack Obama urges Clinton to withdraw from the race and end the harm she is indubitably causing the democratic party.
Senator Clinton remarks "historically, that makes no sense."
We all ask, well, why does it make no sense when you have no chance?
Clinton: "'My husband did not wrap up the nomination in 1992 until he won the California primary somewhere in the middle of June, right?... We all remember Bobby Kennedy was assassinated in June in California.'"
So, Clinton is again trying to reach out to a white voting base and say, "hey you can't vote for this black guy, he is just going to get assassinated". Call it a misinterpretation all you want, but, you can't really misinterpret that quote, as far as I'm concerned. This is not far off from her telling voters in West Virginia that Obama is unelectable as a black man against McCain, she later apologized for those remarks, but this is just another notch on the belt of a long line of outlandish remarks from the Clinton campaign. I used to have respect from her, but after watching the dirty politics game she played after falling victim to one of the biggest political upsets in American history, I guess I can't blame her. Yes I can.
