Clinton and Pansies

You know, neither Clinton, nor Obama are my first choice for POTUS, but things like this add to why I have the second choice that I do have.

ABC News' Eloise Harper Reports: Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Hillary Clinton received the endorsement of North Carolina Gov. Mike Easley Tuesday morning in Raleigh, NC. After touring a bio-manufacturing training center, Gov. Easley, First Lady of North Carolina Mary Easley and Clinton held a ceremony at NC State University. The Governor formally expressed his support saying that there was "nothing I love more than a strong powerful woman." Easley concluded his remarks saying Clinton -- "makes Rocky Balboa look like a pansy".

Incredibly insulting to the GLBTQ community AND sexist, all in one.

While standing right next to this man, now, did Clinton say anything to this comment? Nope...

And here is the rest of it.

I think these candidates want to win so bad that they cant see past the votes and the endorsements. I guess comments like those isnt an issue as long as long as they have another player on their team. And honestly i'll bet Hillary didnt think twice about the Governor's comment, or who it may have offended.
