  •  Yet another reason I reject that line of thinking (0+ / 0-)

    It means the people he was trying to shore up support with (by your argument) would vote against Obama just cause he was black.

    I reject that too.

    Btw, Clinton makes mistakes.  Not doing something about Rwanda was one of them.

    The guy is not perfrect, and I'd fault him for saying something here that could be easily manipulated by people trying to defeat him.

    But people keep saying he's such a smart guy and knew what he was doing.  The risk reward of the tactic didn't make sense.

    He would have been smart enough to know that whatever gain he got from these alleged voters who you think would vote based on race, would be more than offset by support for Obama that would also be be solidified.

    I heard your argument.

    There were a lot of things that happened in the primary that also created the demographic divisions in the party.

    As far as intent is concerned, if I was on the jury you didn't prove it with me.

    Too much reasonable doubt.

    And when I do see your argument in the context of the RFK phony outrage (she knew what he was saying), and the darkened video crap (they knew what they were doing), I'm inclined to advise the defense to file libel charges in a civil suit.
