Yes, I realize Hillary's RFK comments are being blown WAY out of proportion. Most reasonable people understand and give her the benefit of the doubt that she didn't suggest any harm would come to Obama. However, by uttering the comment to begin with certainly doesn't say much about her judgment. A candidate in her position -- running second and trying desperately to pull ahead -- can't afford to even dabble in the obtuse or unclear rhetoric. The onus is on her to show that she is the stronger, more capable leader than Obama and making head-scratching screw-ups like this one just flush that cause down the toilet. And with folks like Keith Olbermann driving home the point, red-faced and fulminating, to the Dem masses, it wouldn't be surprising in the least to see Hillary finally drop out of the race this week.
