Will Hillary Clinton be required to ‘reject and denouce’?

A former Vice Presidential candidate, Geraldine Ferraro, has made some rather controversial remarks that Barack Obama is only popular because he is a black man. In fact, Ferraro says Obama is “lucky” to be a black man (which is laughable). Ferraro is a staunch Clinton backer and part of her team.

Will Clinton be asked on air to ‘reject and denounce’ Ferraro’s views? Especially given the fact that Ferraro appears to have form on these sorts of views when it comes to black (male?) political candidates.

Alex Spillius says he was trying to find an excuse for Ferraro’s comments and all he could find was her age.

She is 74 years old apparently; the same age as Louis Farrakhan.

    You have to wonder why Geraldine Ferraro, who hasn’t been seen nor heard in years, suddenly comes out of the blue with this kind of statement. I suspect that Hillary will ignore any demands for her to distance herself from these remarks.

    Ferraro’s comments were classic dog whistle tactics, after which she could be easily discarded.
