Clinton--Smartest Woman in America?

I can’t believe what Hillary Clinton said today. She was asked by a South Dakota newspaper why she didn’t buy the argument the party was fracturing because of the prolonged contest.

Clinton said “my husband didn’t wrap up the nomination in 1992 until he won the California primary somewhere in the middle of June. We all remember Bobby Kennedy was assassinated in June in California,” she continued. “You know I just don't understand it.” T-A-C-K-Y!

Hillary is considered by some partisans to be “the smartest women in America”. I think there are more subtle, maniacal, subliminal messages in her statements. She later apologized for the misstatements.

Therefore, C3 will not call her the smartest woman in America but the tackiest.
What makes her Bobby Kennedy getting killed statements so tacky?
· Black History--Barrack Obama is black. People have for a long time commented how the first black president would be a dangerous job. Clinton knows how to say stuff thne quickly apologize for it. Tacky.
· Kennedy History--Ted Kennedy almost had a near death experience this week. He has a brain tumor and probably won’t live too long. To bring up Bobby Kennedy’s death so flippantly this week is tacky at best.
· Clinton History--Carnage surrounds the Clinton administration.
One name-->“Vince Foster”—tacky.

Listen to her apology:

“Earlier today, I was discussing the Democratic primary history, and in the course of that discussion mentioned the campaigns that both my husband and Senator Kennedy waged in California in June in 1992 and 1968. And I was referencing those to make the point that we have had nomination, primary contests that go into June. That’s an historic fact. “
“The Kennedy's have been much on my mind in the last days because of Senator Kennedy, and I regret that if my referencing that moment of trauma for our entire nation and particularly for the Kennedy family was in any way offensive. I certainly had no intention of that whatsoever.”
“My view is that we have to look to the past and to our leaders who have inspired us and give us a lot to live up to. And I’m honored to hold Senator Kennedy’s seat in the United States Senate from the state of New York, And have the highest regard for the entire Kennedy family. Thanks.”
blah, blah, blah (ad infinitum, ad nauseam).
Friends, that was a tacky apology. No apolgy for Obama. Part of me wants her to run to energize the Republican Party, part of me hope she fails so we never see this Nixon-like candidate in the White House, ever.
Tacky.
