Should Clinton have done more than “regret” Ferraro”?
How MSNBC is reporting the “racist comment” row
If you’ve got ten minutes just check out how MSNBC is covering the remarkable attack on Barack Obama by the Hillary fundraiser and campaigner, Geraldine Ferraro, who ran on the unsuccessful Democratic ticket with Walter Mondale in 1984.
It gets over far better than anybody could write the nature of this latest issue to blow up in the Democratic nomination. It’s also (see my previous article) great political television.
Hillary’s reaction has so angered many observers that the anchorman, Keith Olbermann, is to make what’s described as “Special Comment” about Hillary tonight â€” the first time he has ever targeted a Democrat. From the UK standpoint such a move is unusual but it gives a sense of the fury that the Clinton campaign might have unleashed.
Democratic nomination betting is here.
