Hillary's campaign hits a new low

Yesterday, Geraldine Ferraro, a prominent Clinton supporter and fundraiser, was quoted as saying:
"If Obama was a white man, he would not be in this position. And if he was a woman (of any color), he would not be in this position. He happens to be very lucky to be who he is"
(I saw this first on BikeMonkey's site, and the entire soap-opera so far has been well summarized over at Huffington Post).

Of course, that comment drew criticism, deservedly, and this is the best Clinton could come up with in response to that:
"It's regrettable that any of our supporters _ on both sides, because we both have this experience _ say things that kind of veer off into the personal"

Really Hillary? Obama's aide calling you a monster for your despicable tactics (privately too, as she did, immediately upon uttering the word, try to keep it off the record with the reporter) is the same as Ferraro publicly attributing all of Barack's success to his skin color? Seriously?

Also, do these people think that the candidate that is Obama would have fared worse if he were a bright, young, charming and articulate white man? What manner of delusion are they suffering from?

Could Hillary not condemn Ferraro's blather in stronger terms; or at all, for that matter?

But it gets worse. Ferraro not only refused to back down from her asinine statement, but went on to accuse the Obama camp of attacking her because she is white! And the Clinton camp, instead of apologizing categorically and whacking Ferraro from the campaign, actually had the gall to put out a memo claiming that Obama is playing the race card!! Go read the whole nauseating story at HuffPost.

Here's a video that perfectly describes what the Clinton campaign is doing to the party and to the liberal nation.
If you cant spare the entire 6 mins or so, just skip forward to the 1:40, 3:40 and 5:40 marks and you'll get the idea.
