“If Obama was a white man, he would not be in this position,” so says former Democratic vice presidential running mate to Walter Mondale (1984)Geraldine Ferraro.
Irregardless of the context this statement was made in the fact that the issue of race was so directly injected into this campaign by a New York Democratic supporter of Hillary Clinton should convince anyone of the extraordinary lengths that Hillary will go to in order to secure this nomination. And the basis for that assessment? The utter silence from the Clinton camp. This statement has gone unchallenged and only obliquely remarked upon by her campaign and for all practical purposes this constitutes a blanket endorsement of its assertion.
This writer, in a previous post, made note of the untoward comments by Hillary Clinton toward Barack Obama but none were as dastardly as the above-referenced comment by an overzealous, uber Hillary supporter who also just happens to be a member of Hillary’s finance committee. Some more reflection on the part of Ms. Ferraro would have been in order but, frankly, it pretty much sums up the whole thrust of Hillary’s campaign. All’s fair in love and war.
I’ve come to the conclusion that Hillary is looking at John McCain as a role model and she is fancying herself in a newer, more powerful role – that of a maverick. As a maverick she can shoot from the hip, change course to suit circumstances, backslide on positions, slam your opponent one minute and then turn right around and offer him a vice presidential slot on your ticket.
Hillary Clinton is nothing more than a whirling dervish. She’s like a spinning top that is spinning out of control and is meandering in all directions at once. Lust for power will do that to a politician. And make no mistake, lust for power is what Hillary is all about. Any other explanation would only be blatant denial.
