THE GROFF/ELLISON POLITICAL REPORT

O…K

Posted in Uncategorized by groffellison on May 24, 2008

In an editorial board meeting with the Sioux Falls Argus Leader Sen. Hillary Clinton said she was staying in the race because her husband didn’t clinch the nomination until June in 1992 and “remember Bobby Kennedy was assassinated in June...”  Clinton tried to explain her answer later in the day, but the damage may have already been done as the media exploded with the story.   

The Obama campaign called the remark “unfortunate” and tried to take the high road after the interesting remark from Clinton.  The comment was very disturbing since Obama has received death threats since very early in the campaign.  In fact the threats were so credible that he was granted Secret Service protection at a much earlier point than normal in a presidential campaign.

    I couldn’t believe what she said at first. I texted a friend immediately: “Hillary just lost the campaign for herself.” Not that she was going to win anyway. But now I believe the superdels will be running far away from her. No matter how she spins it, the inital reaction to her words does not sit well with anyone.
