Hillary Clinton: I’m Staying in Race, You Never Know if Obama Could Gets Shot Like Robert Kennedy … Assassination Comments!!!


Hey Obama, if your people are actually discussing having Hillary as your VP, you may want to rethink that idea. I am not sure if you want you potential VP talking or even thinking assassination thought.

Hillary Clinton defended her staying in the Democratic race, according to he Wtf_dudeNY Post, raising the assassination of Robert Kennedy. Geez Hillary, how to you really feel? Talk about wanting to win at all cost. This might be that Austin Powers moment when he was un-thawed and shouted out what he was thinking, not actually realizing that anyone heard his comment. That may actually be a better excuse for Hillary. Blame it on Cryogenics de-thawing. 

I guess this it was we refer to in the political industry as a shot across the bow, literally. This may be the dumbest comment of the political season. With the Clinton’s, its all about the victory.

Hillary Clinton today brought up the assassination of Sen. Robert Kennedy while defending her decision to stay in the race against Barack Obama.

“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. I don’t understand it,” she said, dismissing calls to drop out.


“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. I don’t understand it.”

Clinton regrets Kennedy assassination remark

Michelle Malkin asks the question whether this is the final death nail for Hillary Clinton. I would go one better. How can Barack Obama after such a comment in any good conscience put Hillary Clinton as a Veep on his ticket? If Obama does, he may have to grow eyes in the back of his head. Who succeeds the President?

Hot Air discusses the controversial comments and the obligatory defense of the statements after the Obama camp “shot back” guns a blazin.

“She was simply referencing her husband in 1992 and Bobby Kennedy in 1968 as historic examples of the nominating process going well into the summer. Any reading into beyond that would be inaccurate,” responded Clinton campaign spokesperson Mo Elleithee.

UPDATE I: Clinton faces uproar with Kennedy assassination comment

UPDATE II: Hillary Clinton Raises the Specter of the Unspeakable

Smart candidates don’t invoke the possibility of their opponents being killed. This seems so obvious it shouldn’t need to be said, but apparently, it needs to be said.


Any comments about assassination and the primary contest are especially sensitive because Obama is the first African-American to advance so far in the race for the White House and he has faced threats, congressional sources have said.

The Rev. Al Sharpton, who has already expressed anger toward Clinton during the race, planned to spend his rally today at his Harlem-based National Action Network addressing “a sense of outrage and dismay at statements made by” the New York senator, according to his office.

      I think that comment, whatever she meant by it, has just put the end to Hillary Clinton’s political career. The IMPLICATIONS are just so horrific that it’s hard to believe that any sane person, much less an experienced politician, would make such a remark.

      (Well, maybe an experienced politician can automatically be said to be insane. Crooked, yes; but sane?)

      I remember reading that a lot of blacks thought that if Obama did run and get elected, he would be shot. Now this comment seems to give us a glimpse into Hillary’s subconscious ….

      There are more than 300 million Americans these days, I believe. Are these candidates the best that we can find, or was Plato right when he said that no decent person would enter politics unless he thought that his absence would mean that someone worse than he would be elected?

    2. caesu on May 23rd, 2008 5:45 pm

      she could have just mentioned the year 1984 when the nominating went into june of 1980 went it went to the convention.

      this proofs she is unfit for the office.
      imagine her as president getting into difficult waters she might say or do something irresponsible for example pressing the red button.

    3. Scared Monkeys on May 23rd, 2008 6:59 pm

      This is beyond bizarre.

      It would almost appear to be a statement that was so outlandish that Obama could never consider her to be on his ticket.

      Hillary Clinton is calculating. There had to be a reason wh she said it.


    4. Paulus is the DEVIL on May 23rd, 2008 7:30 pm

      she is ALL DONE.

      i will celebrate the day she stops this charade

      man, i think she is rotten

    5. misskatie on May 23rd, 2008 7:58 pm

      it just shows her true colors
      i think she is cntrolling and manipulative
      and regardless of my not being to crazy about obama
      she just went to darn farm with that comment
      she is going to pay for it… it will cost her much!!

    7. kim on May 23rd, 2008 8:14 pm

      Hillary just said the truth,she know’s she could also get shot even McCain.People alway’s jump before thinking.Hillary is the best person for the White House.

    8. Jerry from Ohio on May 23rd, 2008 8:35 pm

      In world politics a slip of the tongue like that (if it truly was ?) often the leaders do not have the luxury of saying I’m sorry I didn’t mean it that way .
      Personally I think this was the dark underbelly of the Clinton’s showing they have the WIN at ALL costs
      mentality I sure would NOT want her speaking for me and if Obama takes her on as a ticket partner then he isn’t quite as smart as he thinks he is .

    9. caesu on May 23rd, 2008 8:36 pm

      @kim #7

      if she wouldn’t have said this and if something would happen to BHO in June.
      she would be the nominee.
      whether or not she drops out before June.

      now be saying this she shot herself in her own foot.
      because now the BHO camp would protest very much for the nomination to go to her if something would happen to BHO.
      also she lost he chance for running mate (one heartbeat from the president).

      i have no idea why she brings up an assassination.
      just saying the nominating campaign can drag on till June or until the convention would have done it.
      maybe she lost her mind a bit.

    10. Tomm Thorsen on May 24th, 2008 3:23 am

      You can’t hide the truth. She was not ‘tired’ and ‘weakened’ by the campaign.

      If you want to see the before and after of her interview, you can see how alert and focused she is UNTIL she lets it slip that she is really staying in the race in the event Obama is killed. Look at her body language before/after the comment. She is stammering and loses focus after saying it, realizing she has said too much – let too much out. Caught on tape.

      Search for E0QAewVrR28 on youtube to find a good example of the 2 minute video leading up to her change. It’s an eye-opener.

    11. murph on May 24th, 2008 7:16 am

      Hillary has never had a moral compass so this does not shock me, but if Obama won ,and she was his VP, I do believe he should watch his back!!!!!

      Maybe one of those bullets from the sniper fire hit her in the brain ,because there is something wrong with this lady!!

    12. richard on May 24th, 2008 8:12 am

      I don’t think for a second that Obama would consider taking a Clinton as vice president … or vice versa.

      Obama is projecting the image of “change.” What would he stand to gain from linking himself to the Clintons … Bill or Hillary?

      And, too, the idea of the first black and the first woman might alienate more people than anything else.

      My guess is that Obama will look for a more ‘mainstream’ character to reassure those voters who think he’s too far out, or radical, or new, or whatever. And though the geographical issue doesn’t matter that much anymore (I think), it would make a striking statement if he took someone from the South.

    13. Steve Holloway on May 24th, 2008 8:44 am

      This is the real Hillary. Don’t be fooled by what you see most of the time in sound bites. Go to (You Tube) and watch the Clinton Chronicles (Full length) about 3 hours worth. It will scare the socks off you…We DO NOT need Clinton in the white house. I pray that some one that is a Christian would step up.

    14. Mary,UK on May 24th, 2008 12:20 pm

      I dont believe one iota that this was a slip of the tounge, I think everything that comes out of the Clinton campaign is deliberate and aimed at those with a certain kind of mind-set!!!!

    15. JusticeforNatalee on May 24th, 2008 3:37 pm

      “I understand how highly charged the atmosphere is, but I think it is a mistake for people to take offense,” said Kennedy, who had previously endorsed Clinton for president.”

      Spoken by RFK’s son

    16. richard on May 24th, 2008 8:04 pm

      Anyone with as much experience in politics as Clinton (either of them) has can simply not be forgiven for such a stupid and insensitive remark.

    17. Susan on May 25th, 2008 7:59 am

      It’s not like Hillary ROTTENDAMN Clinton came right out and said Osama Barack Hussein Obama would be assaassinated if he won the nomination and/or the Presidency, but I do find her bringing up Bobby Kennedy’s assassination rather strange to say the least. I’m not defending Hillary nor would I ever. She’s lowlife scum, just like Obama!!

      Personally, I feel Obama’s life would be in constant danger and the possibly of him being shot is very real. Same goes for Hillary. McCain’s chances are much lower, but I could be wrong.

      Please remember all of our fallen heroes on this Memorial Day weekend and be safe :-)

      and I tend to agree… she is constantly sticking her foot in her mouth with her arrogant attitude.. she is very high strung and unprecidtable…………
      she is off the hook with her comments… she lost alot of voters and respect and credibility people are seeing her for who she realy is


      I agree that the chances are pretty great for obama to get asassinated.. even though he isnt my choice for president.. I would sadly hate to see it happen…

      hilarys big mouth can get her shot too…. she is full of herself…

      she is brash!!!!

    20. Patti on May 25th, 2008 7:02 pm

      With all this talk about religion, when it comes to Obama; I would say that HE is the most God fearing, of all the candidates. He, actually, GOES to church. Maybe not the church of our choosing; but, atleast, HE’s THERE.

      America has lost it’s values, as well.

      For Hillary to speak of Bobby Kennedy’s assassination is like Bill saying that he was the NUMBER ONE fan of John… Bobbie would have made a FINE president, connected with the PEOPLE… For Obama, that is his dream. He wants that connection, much, much more than Hillary and he’s got ALOT more heart.

      He will be the PEOPLE’s CHOICE!


    21. Sweet_thang on May 25th, 2008 8:04 pm


      You can’t unring a bell, nor can you return the silverware and fine china you took from the White House the last time you and Bill occupied it. It’s too friggin’ late for any of that. When your campaign utterances piss off the Kennedy clan, your swan song will soon follow.

      Face it: your Presidential aspirations have been slipping away faster than Lindsay Lohan’s “career”. Or Amy Winehouse’s sanity! Or Paris Hilton’s “talent”.

      As for your Vice Presidential running mate possibilities, consider them officially assassinated. Your “wild-eyed desperation” campaign pics have become more commonplace in the media than Bill’s renowned and super-frequent bimbo eruptions.

      Your campaign is running in the red big time, as is your credibility. Please do us all a favor, and move on. Merci.

    22. Sterling Garrett on May 25th, 2008 8:15 pm

      Good grief, you people are as bad as the media about jumping like Jack Flash to make something out of absolutely nothing.

      I don’t particularly care for Hilliary but to twist her words to mean she was hoping that Obama is assassinate is just asinine. All three candidates have secret service protecting them because either one of the three could be assassinated but that has absolutely nothing to do with what she meant.

      She was very clear to the ones who took the time to actually hear her rather than scurrying around like a bunch of rats trying to stir it into smut and tabloid sensationalism. Man, people are just plain damn nasty these days. It is like the media is on a witch hunt and the viewers gather up the flock and blindly follow like sheep.

      She was correct in her statement and should remain. Bill Clinton and Bobby Kennedy both were still very much engaged in trying to secure the Democratic nomination in JUNE!

      Obama is going to need those average white voters and so far they aren’t buying what he is selling although it is hard to discern what that really is but they are the most faithful voters and each time they bond and connect with Hillary. He seems like a fluff muffin and a weak man. McCain is too old and set in his Bush of ideas and Hillary leaves a lot to be desired too although I do think she would have a better chance at beating McCain.

      I read a Tennessee forum today and man oh man, they cant stand Obama or his wife. If he gets the nomination he better look like he is a strong man not dominated by his wife and many voters haven’t forgotten who his spiritual leader was for 20 years either. He doesn’t come across as a strong leader but a man of showy words without substance.

    23. Steve Holloway on May 26th, 2008 5:45 pm

      Go to (You Tube) and watch the Clinton Chronicles, and only then will you understand what she really means.

    24. Roy on May 27th, 2008 9:26 am

      Hillary Clinton is in desperation mode. She is a low-life and her comments (x4) about RFK being assassinated cleary shows her evil makings. I would not trust her to be my VP because she probably have Obama killed just to get her way. It wasn’t a slip of tounge, it was intentional! Just like Huckabee’s idiotic comment! It’s a sad, sad fact that when America doesn’t like the views of the President of the United States…they shoot them! If anything happens to Sen. Obama this country will pay dearly. The world is watching us.

    25. Sweet_thang on May 27th, 2008 10:40 am

      With her assinine assassination comments, the power hungry Mrs Clinton has outdone herself in terms of crudeness and insensitivity. While I’m no Obama supporter, I have heard in recent months that in some circles, including the AA community, there is a fatalistic belief that if Obama were elected president, he would be assassinated. I follow the campaigns rather casually, and for me to be aware of that expressed concern, logic tells me the Clinton camp would also be aware of it. But that did not stop the assassination reference in justifying her unwillingness to call it quits.

      History has shown there are numerous instances of candidates shooting themselves in the foot during a heated campaign. From George Romney’s fatal “I was brainwashed” comment, to HHH’s backing his VP running mate “1,000 percent”, to Ross Perot’s poor choice of a running mate, the minefield of formerly viable candidates is enormous.

      IMHO, Mrs. Clinton has just joined that sorry crowd, shooting herself in both feet. To say she no longer has a leg to stand on may be a bit premature, I don’t believe it’s far off the mark. With the Vince Foster “suicide” still in Hillary’s background, I can’t imagine her mending fences with Obama soon enough to become a running mate. What sane man would want Mrs. C as his “backseat driver/potential successor”?

      Thanks, but no thanks!

    26. Sterling Garrett on May 27th, 2008 9:10 pm

      Any man running for President that doesn’t have the morales to respect the Pledge of Allegiance to the flag of the very country he wants to be President of can kiss my grits. Yeah lets get us a real radical anti-American prez..that ought to make us look even worse than we do now to the rest of the world, if possible.

      I would vote for Hillary all day long rather than this fluff muffin who is dominated by his wife. He comes off as weak man. Just like he sat there in Reverend Wrong’s church soaking up all the racial rant and didn’t open his mouth for 20 years.

    27. mary,uk on May 28th, 2008 4:28 pm

      Sterling, On your comment “make us look even worse than we do now to the rest of the world”
      I have to say that over the past weeks it is increasingly mentioned in the Brittish press that everything that can be done to keep a “black man” out of the white house, is being done.

      I was really enjoying watching the campaign but over the past couple of months i have been really disappointed, I really thought racism was NOT going to be an issue, how wrong was i, I have found the Clinton campaign playing to a certain mentallity that i find offensive.

      i quite like McCain but i can see Obama would be like an new beginning and a hope for the future, i can see him in the white House as a positive for Americas image throughout the world.I think this campaign tarnishes the Democratic party, it is actually quite disgusting to watch.

    28. mary,uk on May 28th, 2008 4:36 pm

      Also the Clinton camps claim of sexism really makes me laugh, Margaret Thatcher saw off the IRA, the unions and the Argentinians, she had bigger BALLS than any man, what is Hillary going to do on the world stage, claim “BOO!!! HOO!!! those bad men are picking on me”!!!!

      Most Brits hatted Thatchers politics but they didnt call her “The iron lady” for nothing!!
