SMH - The first female US vice-presidential candidate and a fundraiser for Hillary Rodham Clinton says Democrat Barack Obama only achieved his status in the presidential campaign because he is black. "If Obama was a white man, he would not be in this position," Geraldine Ferraro told The Daily Breeze of Torrance, California, in an interview published last Friday. "And if he was a woman (of any colour) 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."Lucky, tell that to B. Hussein Obama's wife. Naturally, the B. Hussein Obama camp are calling for her sacking. It's probably true that Democrats wouldn't vote for him if he was a white man, they seem to have the need to prove that they are not racist by voting for him. I wonder what the uproar would have been if it was a Republican who'd said that. Wonder what the reaction would have been if someone said that Hillary was where she is because she's Bills wife and a woman. Incidentally, I prefer Hillary over Obama, because he strikes me as even more left than her.
