SIOUX FALLS, S.D. - Sen. Hillary Clinton referred Friday to the assassination of Robert Kennedy in 1968 Democratic campaign as a reason she should continue to campaign despite increasingly long odds.
Clinton was responding to a question from the Sioux Falls Argus Leader editorial board about calls for her to drop out of the race.
"My husband did not wrap up the nomination in 1992 until he won the California primary somewhere in the middle of June, right? We all remember Bobby Kennedy was assassinated in June in California. I don't understand it," she said, dismissing the idea of dropping out.
Clinton said she didn't understand why, given this history, some Democrats were calling for her to quit.
Her remark about an assassination during a primary campaign drew a quick response from rival Barack Obama's campaign.
"Sen. Clinton's statement before the Argus Leader editorial board was unfortunate and has no place in this campaign," said Obama spokesman Bill Burton.
Clinton spokesman Mo Elleithee said the senator was only referring to her husband and Kennedy "as historical examples of the nominating process going well into the summer and any reading into it beyond that would be inaccurate."
If she went nuts in Sioux Falls, what’d she say in Fargo ?
will them? = will they? (sorry for fumble fingers)
Obama would have to be insane to put her on the ticket.
Go Hillary Go
We all remember Bobby Kennedy was assassinated in June in California.
...I mean, someone could sort of lop off his head with a karate chop or something...
I mean look at what happened to Vince Foster... uh... never mind...
“Sen. Hillary Clinton referred Friday to the assassination of Robert Kennedy in 1968 Democratic campaign as a reason she should continue...”
A go code to her assassination cell? Bet the patsy that gets caught will be a white, red neck right winger.
LOL! Talk about a shot across the bow.
Well. She has a point. Arkancide is always an option when it comes to the Clintons. Hillary just wants to be ready to lead if by any chance Obama is struck by a speeding car while he tries to rescue his cat from kidnappers. or if the stress of the campaign is too much and he gets one of those “magic” carpet rides to his favorite Chicago park (which he has never visited) late one night.
And the Drive-By Media will blame Rush.
“...and the winner, for the All-Time Worst Answer to a Political Question, is...”
With an assault rifle, three wives, the Book of Mormon, and an FR membership card.
I resent that, the part about the three wives!
Beware the Ides of Hillary.
Can Obama request in advance that, in case of his “incapcitation”, his wife replace him?
Why is this even news?
Leftists talk about (and write about) killing Republican presidents all the time.
