Keith Olbermann: Enough Hillary Clinton Enough

Keith Olbermann Special Comment blasts Senator Clinton and says we cannot forgive you this... we all remember Bobby Kennedy was assassinated in June in California... it's political assassination... politics of this nation steeped enough in blood, you cannot evoke this at any time...

this is too much a Senator a person who can let hang in the air the potential she's sticking around because the opponent might get shot... has no business seeking the office of presidency of the United States.


A Clinton "apology" Clinton-style appeared after the media dissected her comments.

Too late.

Unbelievably, Tim Russert is still posing Obama could consider Clinton as his VP. Has he gone faux-apologetic too?

Russert says if not Clinton, a woman on the ticket, who else could it be? What would that say to the superdelegates, he asks.

Say what? the superdelegates should be wondering how Hillary Clinton could even think of assassination at the same time she's answering a question about why she's remaining in the race - Clinton brought up the issue of some in the media and elsewhere calling for her to drop out.

She's over-and-over played her victimhood to gain the people's vote in Pennsylvania, West Virginia and Kentucky.

Now watch as she plays the victim using how much unwarranted criticism she's getting for the assassination comment.

Anderson Cooper (get the transcript) says Clinton was actually wrong about her husband's campaign in 1992, he had the nomination sewn up before then. In 1982, it was different and went into June...

Candy Crawley doesn't understand what she meant.

Countdown replay Jonathan Alter... Her campaign is over, she has lost this nomination, she's not going to convince the superdelegates her way, and has lost an opportunity if she ever had it for the VP nomination...

Clinton regrets Kennedy assassination remark

Associated Press Writer
Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton quickly apologized Friday after citing the June 1968 assassination of Robert F. Kennedy as a reason to remain in the race for the Democratic presidential nomination despite increasingly long odds.
"I regret that if my referencing that moment of trauma for our entire nation and in particular the Kennedy family was in any way offensive. I certainly had no intention of that whatsoever," the former first lady said.

The episode occurred as Clinton campaigned in advance of the June 3 South Dakota primary.

Responding to a question from the Sioux Falls Argus Leader editorial board about calls for her to drop out of the race, she said: "My husband did not wrap up the nomination in 1992 until he won the California primary somewhere in the middle of June, right? We all remember Bobby Kennedy was assassinated in June in California. You know I just, I don't understand it," she said, dismissing the idea of abandoning the race.

Clinton said she didn't understand why, given this history, some Democrats were calling for her to quit.
