Ferraro Resigns, Clinton Apologizes
Posted on Mar 13, 2008
After a good 48 hours or so of pandemonium triggered by her racially charged comments about Barack Obama’s candidacy, a still-not-sorry Geraldine Ferraro resigned Wednesday from her post as “Honorary New York Leadership Council Chair” for Hillary Clinton’s campaign. Meanwhile, Clinton herself said she did regret Ferraro’s comments ... and then some.
AP via Breitbart.com:
Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton did something Wednesday night that she almost never does. She apologized. And once she started, she didn’t seem able to stop.
The New York senator, who is in a tight race with Illinois Sen. Barack Obama for the Democratic presidential nomination, struck several sorry notes at an evening forum sponsored by the National Newspaper Publishers Association, a group of more than 200 black community newspapers across the country.
