      Good morning Chipsticks and Danny,
      Thank you for the wonderful posts yesterday. Stayed up until I finished them all. Governor O’Malley support for President Obama is really a breath of fresh air; however, razor focus on 2014 and then forward we shall march.

    Morning Chips and early risers. Today, I’m determined to tackle a packed closet and restore order to the insanity. If you don’t hear from me, I may be buried under a mountain of clothes and shoes. Wish me luck. That is, unless, I get lured away by a gorgeous day and put the whole thing off. Hmmmm.

    The Victimology of Hillary Clinton
    Even though her 2008 campaign took advantage of racially charged attacks on Barack Obama, she still think she’s the one who had it tough.
    David Frum Jun 20 2014, 12:36 PM ET

    The better Obama did in the Democratic race overall, the more strongly white Democrats rallied to Clinton, sometimes by margins greater than 60 percent.

    Almost to the very end of the race, Clinton looked to racial politics to swing the 800-plus Democratic superdelegates to her. On April 30, the week before the Indiana and North Carolina primaries, she gave an interview to Fox News’s Bill O’Reilly. He asked about the Reverend Jeremiah Wright, whose controversial “God damn America” remarks had just erupted into the news. Clinton said, “I’m going to leave it up to voters … but I wouldn’t have stayed in that church. I take offense at it. I think it’s offensive and outrageous, and I’m going to express my opinion. Others can express theirs.” (Clinton went on to win more than 60 percent of white Democrats in Indiana.)

    In their detailed campaign book Game Change, Mark Halperin and John Heilemann reported that Clinton was “obsessed” (their word) with rumors of a videotape of Michelle Obama denouncing “whitey” in a sermon at Wright’s church. Reporters who covered that campaign had that story repeatedly shopped to them by a high-level Clinton aide.

    In their minds, members of the Clinton team surely never thought of themselves as inciting racial divisions. They believed they were merely anticipating Republican incitement. In the face of impending right-wing racism, what choice did liberals have but to rally around the white candidate, in pure self-defense? (I heard this argument myself from a famous movie director and generous Clinton donor at a dinner party in 2008.) It was a highly convenient self-exculpatory argument. I’m not myself suggesting that Barack Obama is an alien with no right to sit in Washington’s chair … but other people will think so, and so what choice do I have but to urge the media to work harder to find a tape of Obama’s wife denouncing white people?

      Like I said yesterday…they overlook a lot (her base) because she’s a woman. And these people call themselves liberal? They should be ashamed of themselves. Morning, rikyrah. Morning, TOD:) The more I learn the more I’m hoping for someone else….or any Dem. BUT her. I’ll really have to hold my nose…we have work to do before that time comes, though! LOTS of work to do.

      rikyrah, if this is true I don’t like this one bit.

      This isn’t new. Hillary and Bill opened the door for Republicans and others to disrespect our President based on his race.
      I don’t care for the woman’s politics. She has no ethics, is not forward looking and she is a risk to the continuation of all the progress we have made under President Obama.

      Yes, VC and I are enjoying a pot of green jasmine tea, with a bit of fresh lemon, and pondering the long view. Aren’t we, VC?
