Pot and Kettle Alert
|"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. And the country is caught up in the concept. "|
-- Geraldine Ferraro, Clinton fundraiser, member of Clinton's campaign financial committee, and former Democratic Vice Presidential candidate.
Make no mistake about it: this is the original token candidate crying "token candidate." Do you think I am being harsh? Geraldine admitted as such in the same interview:
"In 1984, if my name were Girard instead of Geraldine, I never would have been picked as the vice-presidential candidate."
Hear the interview here:
Will Clinton distance herself from this surrogate? If she doesn't, then Clinton must think it is ok to call someone, in essense, a token black, as long as you don't call him a monster.
