Unfortunately, this is why I feel that what Ferraro said may be mostly true -- Obama is getting a lot of attention becuase he is a black man. Sadly, as awesome as this country is, we are amazed that a black man is this close to moving into 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. Hillary? Maybe since her run has been talked about since before she left the White House nearly eight years ago, we are not as much in awe.
At the end of the day, Ferraro's comments were insenstitve and offensive. I expect more from a longtime feminist leader who I am sure has been at the receiving end of these type of comments. I'm glad that she resigned from Hillary's campaign. Hillary has enough of an uphill battle without having her allies playing this anti-affirmative action slander game.
