One very prominent Clinton campaign surrogate either didn't get the message (unlikely), has decided to freelance, or represents the tip of the spear in terms of a new Clinton campaign front.
Lanny Davis, in a HuffingtonPost column today,, asks:
These two questions are:
1. If a white minister preached sermons to his congregation and had used the "N" word and used rhetoric and words similar to members of the KKK, would you support a Democratic presidential candidate who decided to continue to be a member of that congregation?
2. Would you support that candidate if, after knowing of or hearing those sermons, he or she still appointed that minister to serve on his or her "Religious Advisory Committee" of his or her presidential campaign?
No offense to Arianna... the Huffington Post is not the main news source for Pennsylvania voters. Superdelegates and Obama donors... yes. Was this an authorized hit?
Update: "Nope," says Clinton campaign communications director Howard Wolfson.
