Bill Clinton made a really bone-headed comment. Simple as that.
And as for this wild-eyed theory of yours, remember which network interviewed Bill Clinton to get that answer from him --- ABC News. George Stephanopoulos, an ex-Clintonite had Barack on this morning and asked him about Bill's comment. You really think George and ABC News didn't do their research before George's his condemnation of Bill? If anything, Stephanopoulos won't stand for his former boss to get attacked like this.
Another thing -- Why is the Clinton campaign, masters at spin and damage control, so silent? Must be the truth to large to spin this time around.
The truth can be silencing sometimes. And this is a prime, caught red-handed, dog-whistling remark from the former 'first black president', Bubba Clinton. A shameless, disgusting comment from someone most of us used to respect. How times have changed.
If there's one person who I've lost the most respect for in this presidential primary process, it is Bill Clinton. Hands-down. A so-called progressive leader who supports voter disenfranchisement no longer speaks for me.
By all accounts, Mark Penn is raking in the highest fees for his consulting for Hillary Clinton. So lets say Penn has a cumulative fee around $3M, and Edwards consultants charge about $2M. And what if Obama's AKP group has a ceiling consulting fee of $2.2M?
You see where this is getting? The gravy train depends on what is charged in the final run, and not the means by which the charge is made. What should end is the exorbitant fees of some of the Democratic consultants like Shrum who produce failed campaigns.
