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 NY 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.”
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?
“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.
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.
