No, not that one — I’m talking about the real “first black president” — although he may soon be stripped of that title.
This Chicago mayoral race should be fun. It’s barely gotten underway and already Bill Clinton is kinda-sorta being called a racist:
Two candidates for mayor told former President Bill Clinton to cancel plans to campaign for their front-running rival, Rahm Emanuel. Congressman Danny Davis accused Mr. Clinton of trying â€œto thwart the legitimate political aspirations of Chicagoâ€™s black community.”
Former U.S. Sen. Carol Moseley Braun said it would be a â€œgaffeâ€ by the former president on a par with comments Mr. Clinton made during the 2008 Presidential primary season. Some supporters of Barack Obama claimed Clinton had belittled the then-Illinois State Senator by comparing Obamaâ€™s campaign for President to Rev. Jesse Jacksonâ€™s quest for the White House.
Somehow Slick will manage to successfully endorse all three and blame the racial strife on Rush Limbaugh.
