She Didn\’t, Did She?

Asked about calls for her to drop out of the race, she had said: "My husband did not wrap up the nomination in 1992 until he won the California primary somewhere in the middle of June, right? We all remember Bobby Kennedy was assassinated in June in California. I don\’t understand it."

She did.

There\’s an element of anyone wanting the power that badly being not qualified to wield it.

  1. Although it does raise the question of what would happen if she dropped out and then someone popped Obama. Hold another primary?

    I don’t see the fuss. She made a sensible comment which was in poor taste but was true. I don’t see upsetting the poor dears out there is such a big deal. Now if her husband was interviewing hitters, that would be another matter.

  2. “Now if her husband was interviewing hitters”

    Maybe not, but I bet he’s hitting on interviewers.

  3. Well I hate her like stink, but I reckon there is far too much being read into this. She was using the example to illustrate the Democrat party primary cycle. The assassination of Robert Kennedy happened while he was still actively campaigning . And it was June. And he was a no-brainer. Folk are behaving as if she had incited a team of gunmen to lock and load.

  4. Of course there’s far too much being read into it. She’s spoiling the party for the new media darling, Barak Obamassiah, and the MSM can’t have that

  5. JuliaM – Another website, probably LGF, said that Hillary was being treated like a Republican. I agree this is mostly MSM pique. They don’t want her in the race and now will hound her out if they can.

    For once I sympathise with Hillary. The British media have done this any number of times. OK. No one much missed Enouch Powell, but I think their treatment of Sir Keith Joseph for some quite sensible comments was outrageous. The number of people they have brought down over a minor politically incorrect joke! I hope the British have moved beyond giving a flying f**k what the MSM thinks – as Boris’ victory despite his piccanny comments seems to show.

    I suppose that really tasteless people are sitting around and discussing which politicians they would like to see gunned down. I can say who I’d like to see shot the least – Tony Benn with George Galloway a close second. Why put them out of their friend’s misery?

  6. “No one much missed Enouch Powell…”

    Maybe not at the time, no. But with the disaffected ex-Labour and ex-Tory voters now looking at the BNP as a ‘up yours!’ vote, I don’t think they really had all the answers then, either.

    “I suppose that really tasteless people are sitting around and discussing which politicians they would like to see gunned down.”

    If you have to choose, you’ve not bought enough ammunition… 😉

  7. As someone pointed out, the comparison is very inapt because back when RFK was shot, the campaign had only been running for three months, since the phenomenon of primaries in January was unheard of.
