    Wow.  Very moving diary and I hope everyone takes the time to read it.  

    Not everyone is reachable, but I think most are, and I have no doubt that we will come together as a party and November will be a month of celebration.

    What are you suggesting?  

    I read his comment and did a double-take, lombard posted an hour later, and I responded to lombard with how I took the comment.

    I don't think it required her clarification as much as the full context.  When I read the initial news reports that only included the one line I was stunned.  When I saw the full text, and then the video, her meaning was pretty clear.  

    It was a bad example to use for sensitivity reasons and because it doesn't show what she claims it shows, but I knew what she was trying to say.

    I agree.

    I think everyone agrees her examples sucked.

    I know that but there was still no reason for the Obama campaign to send an email promoting it.  What was the point? They've won the campaign, so it was a dumb move.

    Obama did apologize for his 'bitter' statements, he admitted he phrased it badly, and then he clarified his remarks.

    I think Hillary did about the same in this instance.  Not quite, but about the same.

    I'm not going to quibble over whether she should have apologized directly to Obama or not.  For all we know, she did call and talk to him about it.  Wouldn't surprise me.

    I'd love to rec your diary, but...

    She was invoking RFK for an emotional tie in with her campaign, not to imply what you are saying.  Her example that campaigns run through June has more emotional weight (even though the examples were false) to use her husband and JFK, than they would using Carter or someone else that lost.

    That said, she should have known better than to use the word 'assassination'.  She used it once in March, then avoided the word for weeks, and then used it again.

    She was not making the argument, or implication, that you are claiming.  IMO

    No, that isn't what happened.  They sent an email linking to KO's special comment to their media contact list the next day.  I think they were wrong to do that but it is standard practice.  Hillary's campaign does the same thing.

    canadian gal,

    I think your update is a bit misleading.  I've only seen one or two say that Hillary actually meant something horrible when she made the statement.  Quite a few are saying she should have appologized and that she should have known better for using the example, but that's not the same.

  • on a comment on It's outrageous! over 6 years ago

    I think the campaign sent out two emails.  One with the mild "unfortunate" language and the other the next day with KO's special comment.

    It's totally reasonable to have sent out the first one since that's what campaigns do, and their response was tepid.

    I think it was wrong to send out the second one.  And yes, I know that Clinton has done worse (bitter, NAFTA, etc), but it was still wrong.

    A big difference (but by no means the only one) to Linfars delusional comparison is that the Tibetan dissident is fighting for a noble cause, while Linfar is doing nothing but spreading filth and hate.
