Resentment

One of Ygelsias guest bloggers pretty succinctly sums of Geraldine Ferraro:

Get it? When you think an Ivy-educated black couple is elitist, but think an Ivy-educated white couple is the salt of the earth, you aren’t a racist you just resent black people racially. Big Difference. I mean, you wouldn’t attend a Klan rally or anything, but elect Barack and soon they’ll be marrying your daughters.

One thing that’s truly regrettable about the last month or so has been the way in which Hillary Clinton has subjugated herself to people around her who don’t necessarily have her interest in mind, whether it’s Ferraro, Howard Wolfson, or even Bill. Then again, maybe she’s driving it. Obama’s only a non-Muslim “as far as [she] know[s]” after all.
