Clinton Is Asked About Ferraro, Does Not "Agree"

According to an interview with the Associated Press just now:

I do not agree with that. It is regrettable that any of our supporters on both sides, because we’ve both had that experience, say things that kind of veer off into the personal. We ought to keep this on the issues. There are differences between us. There are differences between our approaches on health care, on energy, on our experience, on our results that we’ve produced for people. That’s what this campaign should be about.



Arlington Center aides say that Clinton does not feel as if she has to apologize for Ferraro's comments; after all, they are Ferraro's, not her own. And by linking them to the variety of remarks hoots and jeers from both sides, she is making a claim of equivalence between the rhetoric coming from her side and from Obama's. Jaws will clench at Chicago Center when they read this.

Ms. Ferraro's comments, once again:

"If Obama was a white man, he would not be in this position. 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."
