Hillary's chances are toast — or had better be
This (note: salty) is the worst, most deplorable, desperate act yet from the Clinton campaign. I'm practically speechless. And I don't care if you think Barack Obama is unqualified, or is too liberal, or whatever; that's your opinion. But you, yes you, should be completely outraged at this.
UPDATE: Sean Braisted says that I am (with the wife, and many others) blowing this out of proportion.
What do you think?
UPDATE III: Okay, okay. She might not have meant "I'm staying in the race in case (hint) my opponent gets assassinated." I'll grant you that. But, in my opinion, her comments show extremely poor judgment nonetheless. And I can't lie about my first impression upon reading the quote.
UPDATE IV: Been thinking about this some more. Been reading opinions about how "the Obama campaign" is using this gaffe. Maybe they are. But I am not, nor is anyone with whom I have spoken about this, the Obama campaign. We are just voters—some of us Democrats, myself the independent—who saw or heard the remark, and took it as a reflection of the thinking inside the Clinton campaign.
