Clinton Rejects

But not denounces? Ah, semantics:

"Earlier in the day, Hillary Clinton supporter and fundraiser Geraldine Ferraro gave up her honorary position with Clinton's campaign after she said in an interview last week that Obama would not have made it this far if he were white. Obama said Ferraro's remarks were "ridiculous" and "wrong-headed."

"Of Ferraro's comment, Hillary Clinton told her audience: "I certainly do repudiate it and I regret deeply that it was said. Obviously she doesn't speak for the campaign, she doesn't speak for any of my positions, and she has resigned from being a member of my very large finance committee."

That's a start, but really what Clinton needs to reject and cease is her constant injection of race into this campaign. Then again, without preying on people's biases does she really have a chance? Probably not, especially with the numbers working against her.
