(Y'all can wipe those silly looks off your faces right this minute.)
I'm not a fan of many Democrats, and I hope that the Republican wins in November.
But I also want to be thought of, no to actually BE, fair.
And so in that vein, may I just say that THIS is much ado about NOTHING?
You'd have thought that the senator had just called in Lee Harvey Oswald. What she meant, if I may be so bold as to get inside Hillary's head (there's a scary thought), is that the people pressuring her to get out of the race because it's getting so late in the year forget that many nominations haven't been wrapped up until much later than this. And she gave as an example the fact that Bobby Kennedy was still campaigning for the nomination in June of '68 when he was assassinated. And certainly no one was or is complaining about that!
Now please, let's don't make ourselves look foolish by saying she was playing the "assassination card" or using any other sly maneuver. She may have been unwise to bring it up at all given the vultures that stand around waiting for dead politicians, but let's give her a break. She's said and done enough stuff that deserves castigation without her opponenents(in or out of the Obama campaign) chewing this one to death.
