This ones bad folks
Responding to a question from the Sioux Falls Argus Leader editorial board about calls for her to drop out of the race, she 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. You know I just, I don't understand it," she said, dismissing the idea of abandoning the race.
She's stayng in the race because there is a chance Obama may be assasinated. :shock:
This race is over. Her political career is over. The Press in the States are going nuts. Good-bye VP Nomination. Good-bye future run for President.
This tops the Chretien face Ad. She will be out of the race by the end of the weekend!!

You don't reference an assasination unless your looking to score political points. She had to have had talking points and it had to be one of the points. I don't know how it could help her politically but Billary does nothing that she figures doesn't help her. When RFK was assasinated they had only had 13 primaries. The primary season was alot shorter then. Her Husband had the Dem. nomination sowed up by March. I guess McCain is stilll fighting hard too! The reference to RFK's assasination had nothing to do with her fighting on into June!
The race is over and she is intent on fighting a war of attrition to the convention hoping Obama makes a huge gaffe.
Headline in the New York Daily News today:
Hillary Clinton's colossal blunder simply the last straw
SICK. Disgusting. And yet revealing. Hillary Clinton is staying in the race in the event some nut kills Barack Obama.
It could happen, but what definitely has happened is that Clinton has killed her own chances of being vice president. She doesn't deserve to be elected dog catcher anywhere now.
Her shocking comment to a South Dakota newspaper might qualify as the dumbest thing ever said in American politics.
Her lame explanation that she brought up the 1968 assassination of Robert Kennedy because his brother Ted's illness was on her mind doesn't cut it. Not even close.
We have seen an X-ray of a very dark soul. One consumed by raw ambition to where the possible assassination of an opponent is something to ponder in a strategic way. Otherwise, why is murder on her mind?
It's like Tanya Harding's kneecapping has come to politics. Only the senator from New York has more lethal fantasies than that nutty skater.
We could have seen it coming, if only we had realized Clinton's thinking could be so cold. She has grown increasingly wild in her imagery lately, invoking everything from slavery to the political killings in Zimbabwe in making her argument for the Florida and Michigan delegations. She claimed to be the victim of sexism, despite winning the votes of white men.
But none of it was moving the nomination needle, with Obama, despite recent dents, still on course to be the victor.
So she kept digging deeper, looking for the magic button. Instead, she pushed the eject button, lifting herself right out of consideration.
Giving voice to such a vile thought is all the more horrible because fears Obama would be killed have been an undercurrent to his astonishing rise. Republican Mike Huckabee made a stupid joke about it recently. Many black Americans have talked of it, reflecting their assumption that racists would never tolerate a black President and that Obama would be taken from them.
Clinton has now fed that fear. She needs a very long vacation. And we need one from her.
Say good night, Hillary. And go away.
Obama should press this assasination thing until she breaks.
