Hillary Clinton Brags About How She’s the Candidate for “White Americans” … Oops!

In an interview with USAToday, Hillary Clinton had a little slip of the tongue, when she essentially said that she’s the “white folks” candidate.  In fact, after recent highly racist comments were made, this picture even surfaced:

OK, so obviously I’m joking.  What actually happend is Clinton misspoke, and the media has blown it somewhat out of proportion (the media, blowing things out of proportion to enhance ratings!  NEVER!).  During an interview with USAToday, Clinton said the following: “I have a much broader base to build a winning coalition on. … There was just an AP article posted that found how Sen. Obama’s support among working, hard-working Americans, white Americans, is weakening again, and how whites in both states who had not completed college were supporting me. There’s a pattern emerging here.”

Wow, that was extremely poorly worded.  I mean, this was worse than the “guns and religion” quote from Obama.

But, John Edwards came to Clinton’s rescue.  When he was interviewed on CBS’s Face the Nation, he told Bob Schieffer, “I know how hard it is to get up and go out there every day, speak to the media, speak to crowds, when people are urging you to get out of the race.  I mean, it’s a very hard place to be in.  But she’s shown a lot of strength about that. … She’s in a very tough, very competitive race that’s been going on a long, long time.  And you know, she didn’t probably — I’m sure she feels like she didn’t choose her words very well there.”

David Axelrod, an Obama campaign strategist responded by saying, “The words weren’t well chosen, but the thesis was wrong” (for the life of me, I can’t figure out what he meant.  Did he mean to say “and the thesis was wrong”?  The “but” is really throwing me off, because that would imply that he somewhat agrees with her – anyway…).

Clinton has come back to defend her statement, saying, “These are the people you have to win if you’re a Democrat in sufficient numbers to actually win the election.  Everybody knows that.”  And that’s true.  Like it or not, that’s most of America.  This is something that the Democrats aren’t getting.  Not only do they need to reach white average Americans, they kinda need a white MALE candidate to win.  America won’t vote for a black man, and America won’t vote for a woman.  That’s just a fact of the current society.  I’m not saying it’s right, I’m just saying it’s true.

So, if I were Clinton, I would keep bragging about being “dem white folks’ candidate,” because she won’t win without them (not that she’ll win at all).  I just don’t think Obama will reach out to enough of America, and  too much of America hates Clinton (and rightfully so).

So who wins?  John McCain!  And he will hardly have to campaign (hey, it gives me more free time too).

    Hillary Clinton, Bill Clinton are tooo evil for american politics. There is a nice rehab centre in West Virginia, all inclusive plus a nomination for the first female Grand Wizard Ass of W. Virginia. If I were you Hillary, I’d take it. They supply the robes, cabin, nazi SS, everything you need.

    Oh, she’s already got her own “SS” (and I don’t mean Secret Service) – how many people have her and Bill had killed off?
