By now, you’ve probably heard Hillary Clinton‘s reference to Bobby Kennedy‘s assassination in June 1968, as an example of Democratic primaries that are decided late in the process. This is an unfortunate comparison, to say the least, and hardly apt. New Hampshire voted in March of 1968 — a full two months after this year’s primary. But such details hardly matter to a campaign that routinely shifts goalposts and fuzzes numbers.
Capping off a week in which Clinton likened her "fight" to seat the Florida and Michigan delegates to the struggle to free the slaves and women’s suffrage (all the while comparing the situation to Florida 2000 and Zimbabwean vote fraud), Hillary has now sunk to a new and truly despicable low.
MSNBC’s Keith Olbermann says it better than I ever could. Be sure to watch to the end, to hear his litany of Clinton campaign offenses. So sad. So tragic. So pathetic.
Please write to the DNC and tell them to put pressure on the uncommitted superdelegtes so Obama can have at least a couple of months to campaign against the Republican opposition.
