Underneath those Remarks

Is the real question: WHY ARE THEY TRYING TO FORCE HILLARY CLINTON OUT OF THE RACE?
While everyone is pointing the finger at Hillary Clinton's remarks about Robert F. Kennedy, no one is focusing on the essence of her comments which led to the remark.
The interviewer is asking her why so many are trying to push her out of the race:
Hillary states "I don't know why, they have been trying to push me out since Iowa."
"Why""Why" the interviewer persists.
"I don't know I find it curious" Hillary says. She continues to say that it is unprecedented in history (trying to force a candidate out of the race).
She states that her opponent and the media have called for an "urgency" to end the race.
"Historically it makes no sense, so I find it a bit of a mystery." Hillary says.
The interviewer continues - "you don't buy the party unity?"
"I don't" says Hillary, "I've been around long enough"
at this point she goes on to talk about Bill's nomination being in June and "we all remember Bobby Kennedy was assasinated in June" (she put emphasis on JUNE).
Hillary goes on to talk about speculation as to why so many are trying to force her out of the race. "I don't want to attribute motives or strategies to people because I don't really know."
Very soon after her interview finishes, the Obama camp fires off it's statement of disgust over her comments saying "they have no place in the campaign".
And there lies the immediate swift-boating (once again) of Hillary. It is EXACTLY what the Obama campaign & media pulled when Hillary made the remark about MLK/LBJ and turned her into a "racist".
Hillary immediately apologized to the Kennedy family yesterday and has said she regrets the remarks.
here is the video from CNN:

QUESTION: The Obama campaign fired off a memo about the Kennedy remarks but why did these remarks never bother their campaign before?
Hillary has used the remarks before, again for historical significance, but the obama camp never cared before.
ANSWER: To take the focus off of what the interview was really about, what they were discussing:
WHY IS EVERYONE TRYING TO FORCE HILLARY OUT OF THE RACE?
The Obama campaign and the media-soaked-Obama-love-fest-paid-shills like Olbermann came after her like Bats out of Hell.
The TRUTH and the SPECULATIONS and the MOTIVES as to why they are trying to force Hillary to quit the race.
So - ask yourself - WHY are they?
