Hillary - Don't Go Away Mad, Just Go Away

I've heard that house guests and fish in the refrigerator have one thing in common: After seven days they both start to stink. That's how I'm feeling right now about Hillary's campaign, like an unwanted house guest who just won't leave.

And now she's really starting to stink.

In yet another case proving its well past time for her to get out of this race and let Barack Obama and America get on with the general election, she had the audacity to reference the assassination of Robert Kennedy in June, 1968 as rationale for her continuing on.

As in 'Hey, somebody might shoot him before we get to the convention (hint, hint), and then y'all will be lucky that I'm still around."

Wow, anyway you
try to spin it, that was just a very stupid thing to say. Or as Villager said:

Hillary Clinton is a brilliant, calculating, power-hungry woman. She doesn't do anything by accident. Therefore, I don't think it was an accident that she told folks in South Dakota that she refuses to concede defeat for the Democratic Party nomination because Barack Obama might be assassinated.

Exactly, and he points out another disturbing trend.

...Villagers, I am concerned about the careless way that Hillary Clinton, Mike Huckabee, Roswell Beacon, Francine Torge and Doris Lessing talk about assassination of the first legitimate African American candidate for President of the United States.

Now that it's obvious to everyone but her the nomination is lost, Hillary and her team are turning to the age old tactics of coercion and intimidation. How truly, utterly pathetic. That she's clarifying her remarks and apologizing to the Kennedy family means nothing, just as it meant nothing when she apologized for turning the West Virginia primary into a racial identity fest.

Hillary, your legacy is just about shot and you're killing any political future you might have. Like the unwanted house guest or the old fish in the refrigerator, it's time to go.

Someone please discard her in the trash, and don't mistakenly put her in the recycle bin either. I'm so done with her!

Well said!

I can't believe she made such a ghoulish statement. Was it wishful thinking?

I'm going to remember all of this when she tries again in 4 or 8 years.

Her rapid descent into irrational thought disqualifies her from
holding "ANY" public office, and also shows that she doesn't think
well under pressure two traits no one wants in a President. For her
to invoke an assassination to advance her pathetic arguments is as low
as one can go in a public forum. She is, in my mind, inciting some
moron(s) to carry out her thought.
If she were VP Obama would need, a food taster and a body double.

Believer 1964 - lol at "not in the recycle bin. We definitely need her to move on.

Jobsanger - It's at best wishful thinking, at worst she's inciting her supporters to violence. The fact that she's said it more than once is telling.

Higher office looks like its out of the question for her at this time. She has blown it with too many of the people she would need to make it happen.

That Girl Boo - I agree that Obama would have to watch his back closely with her as the VP. No planes, trains, or automobiles either. He'd be the only president in recent history who would have to walk everywhere.

She needs to quit now and try to restore a shred of her dignity.
