Ferraro vs. Obama, Round II (maybe III)
In interview today with the Daily Breeze, Geraldine Ferraro says Barack Obama was wrong to draw a parallel between her comments earlier this month and those of his former pastor, the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, in a speech Obama gave Tuesday.
Said Ferraro: "To equate what I said with what this racist bigot has said from the pulpit is unbelievable. He gave a very good speech on race relations, but he did not address the fact that this man is up there spewing hatred."
Ferraro, a former vice-presidential candidate and Hillary Clinton supporter, told the paper in early March that Obama only made it this far in the race because he is black. She resigned as an adviser to Clinton's campaign shortly afterward.
