    where he's playing the race card with regard to Hillary's LBJ comments? Or the fairy tale comment?

    I'm not saying such quotes don't exist. I'm just not sure I've ever seen them.

    I think these statements were pounced upon by the media well before Barack's team said a word. All I remember him saying was that her comparison was "ill advised" (and, it was).

      where she's playing the gender card?

      Hint, look at last nights debate.

    •  Of course not, surrogates do those things (0+ / 0-)

      The media have acknowledged contacts from the Obama campaign about the MLK/LBJ flap.  The "fairy tale" interpretation came from a politician supporting Obama.

      Did Hillary personally make any comments about Obama's past drug use?  No.  That hasn't stopped y'all for claiming she is personally responsible for those comments.

      Of course Senator Obama won't personally make these attacks - it doesn't fit his image as being above politics as usual.  And there is indeed a way in which the conduct of the Obama campaign is above politics as usual, as they have deliberately taken race-baiting to a whole new level.
