Once could conceivably be an "accident":
Friday, May 23, 2008
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.
Twice..is NO accident:
TIME: Can you envision a point at which--if the race stays this close--Democratic Party elders would step in and say, "This is now hurting the party and whoever will be the nominee in the fall"?
CLINTON: No, I really can't. I think people have short memories. Primary contests used to last a lot longer. We all remember the great tragedy of Bobby Kennedy being assassinated in June in L.A. My husband didn't wrap up the nomination in 1992 until June. Having a primary contest go through June is nothing particularly unusual.
Yes, I know she "apologized" for today's comment, but don't make me go on another non-apologetic apology rant. She claimed today that the Kennedys have been on her mind because of Ted's illness. Ok, I'll buy that (or pretend to). What about the first time? She is playing on someone's fears, and insulting our intelligence to boot. There is no excuse. There just isn't. And here is the rest of it.
