Obama earns expected easy win in Mississippi

Posted by Stephen on March 11, 2008

Shaking off racist remarks by Liberal Hillary Clinton supporter Geraldine Ferraro, Barack Obama claimed an easy, albeit expected, victory over his Democrat rival in Mississippi.

Ferraro, the latest antagonist coming from the Clinton camp, claimed Obama has it easy on the campaign trail because of the color of his skin.

“If Obama was a white man, he would not be in this position,” Ferraro said during an assessment of Obama’s treatment by the press that she attributes to an infatuation with the racial implications of his candidacy.

“And if he was a woman of any color he would not be in this position. He happens to be very lucky to be who he is. And the country is caught up in the concept,” added Ferraro.

Obama called the remarks “absurd,” and stated “I don’t think that Geraldine Ferraro’s comments have any place in our politics or the Democratic Party … I think they were divisive.”

He added, “I think that anybody who understands the history of this country knows they are patently absurd. I would expect that the same way those comments don’t have a place in my campaign, they shouldn’t have a place in Senator Clinton’s.”

However, it is unlikely that Clinton will change her tact. This is simply a part of the Clinton campaign plan. She stays clean while sending the pit-bulls out to say anything hoping that something sticks to the wall and slows down the Obama campaign.

Looking to Mississippi Obama finds tremendous support and reason to celebrate. The Illinois Senator continues to rack up victories. He has won twice as many states and leads Clinton in the popular vote by 1 million voters.

“I am grateful to the people of Mississippi for joining the millions of Americans from every corner of the country who have chosen to turn the page on the failed politics of the past and embrace our movement for change,” Obama said in a statement.

Now it’s off to Pennsylvania primary to be held April 22nd. Clinton is banking on a victory where she holds the early lead in polls. However, Obama’s on his way with nearly six weeks until the vote. As he has in every state, Democrats can count on a difficult race.
