Sure looks like it to me. So stupid if true, the backlash would be much worse than anything they could possibly gain. Ask Time Magazine from when they did it to OJ.[/QUOTE]
If true, incredibly stupid.
In the unlikely event she somehow pulls out the nomination, does her campaign (I'm assuming she didn't know about this) honestly think black voters are going to turn out for her in the general after pulling BS like this?
Ok this is ridiculous. It is common practice in television ads to cast aspersion about the other candidates by placing them in dark light during the ad to connotate an image of "badness" or "evil". This stuff is standard political fare and to brand it in this way is a reach at best.
Brazile: Howard Dean And Other Party Leaders Should Be Prepared To Step In By Greg Sargent - March 5, 2008, 9:22AM
Despite Hillary's big wins in Ohio and Texas last night, some super-delegates are already suggesting that a continued contest risks damaging the party and are calling on Howard Dean and other party leaders to be ready to intervene should the race get dirtier:
"Despite Obama's impressive victories in February, Clinton's comeback is based on sowing political seeds of doubt," said Donna Brazile, a Democratic strategist and one of nearly 800 party leaders known as superdelegates for their ability to determine the nomination. "In order to clinch the nomination, he must anticipate the worst attacks ever."...
Some superdelegates are bracing themselves to intervene on Obama's behalf if necessary.
"If these attacks are contrasts based on policy differences, there is no need to stop the race or halt the debate," Brazile said. "But, if this is more division, more diversion from the issues and more of the same politics of personal destruction, chairman Dean and other should be on standby."
Consider that a harbinger of what we're likely to hear from other super-delegates if the race gets uglier without significantly altering the underlying pledged-delegate imbalance between the two candidates.
[QUOTE=HDCentStOhio;2413853]Why would a "darkened Obama" or a "more black" Obama be considered more sinister? Skin tone doesn't matter to me. Must be a Democrat thing.[/QUOTE]
Her potential motive for doing so is completely lost on you huh? :rolleyes:

Yes. Don't forget, her husband was the first black president.
