"If Obama was a white man, he would not be in this position," she said. "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."
Some villagers may be too young to remember Ferraro. She was a congresswoman for less than six years when Walter Mondale chose her as his running mate in the 1984 presidential campaign. Outside of her New York district and Capitol Hill, few of us had heard of her. It is likely that Mondale picked her in a desparate effort to beat Ronald Reagan. Mondale wanted to break a barrier -- selecting the first (and, so far, only) woman for a major-party presidential ticket. It didn't work too well. Mondale/Ferraro were beat 49-1 in the election that year.
I wonder if Team Clinton thinks that George W. Bush is "very lucky" to be in the White House ... benefiting from the fact that his Daddy was a former White House occupant?
I wonder if Team Clinton thinks that Hillary Clinton is "very lucky" to be a leading presidential candidate ... benefiting from the fact that her husband was a former White House occupant?
Ferraro and Team Clinton continue to overlook the fact that Barack Obama brings to the table leadership skills and talents that are remarkable. Look at his fundraising success. Look at his community organizing success that results in him winning more than twice as many states as Team Clinton. Look at his magnificent communication skills with audiences all over the nation.
I continue to be amazed at the arrogance and borderline racist tendency of Hillary Clinton and her surrogates. It is difficult to go a full day without another example of poor judgement and diarrhea of the mouth from Clinton's surrogates. I wonder what type of weak response we will hear from the candidate?
