WASHINGTON (AFP) - Barack Obama's White House campaign lashed out in fury Tuesday after a prominent Hillary Clinton supporter attributed his stunning march through US politics to his race.
Obama aide Susan Rice called for Clinton to fire Geraldine Ferraro, the only woman yet to run on a major party's presidential ticket, after her comments Friday to a Los Angeles newspaper.
"That's a really outrageous and offensive comment," Rice said on MSNBC television after Ferraro, who sits on Clinton's finance committee, had said: "If Obama was a white man, he would not be in this position."

This just gets better and better!!!
Ahh , Yes
The AP makes it almost read as: "Barack Obama's White House staff..." They already have him in the WH.
“No Truth-Telling Allowed”
Truth hurts, doesn’t it, 0’bambi??
John prefers coke.
Obama’s one appeal is that he doesn’t overtly appeal based on race. If his campaign continues to display sensitivity like this, they will get caught up in racial politics and THAT would diminish him way more than a quote we didn’t know about if they had NOT bought it to our attention.
In fact by demanding her resignation for a non-offensive statement, they are giving Hildabeast a platform to AGAIN bring the ‘Media Sexism’ issue to the forefront.
In the 1960s the Tenth Amendment (states rights) became code words for the N-word. Now the First Amendment is fast becoming code words for the N-word.
Can somebody tell me when it became Racist to speak the truth in America?
Why is this racist? Jeesh!!
Obama’s supporters are starting to sound just like Sharpton. IOW race pimps.
Second, I don't understand what is so offensive about what she said. The Obama campaign is making overreaction an art form.
Given all the uproar protesting the firing of the U.S. attorneys by the president, the libs sure spend a lot of time demanding that people be fired.
Who would win? ....Ferraro vs. Greer in a steel cage match.
Gad, they are as bad as the muzzies. “We are offended!! Off with her head!!”
Who does he think he is????? “This is a free country,” as we learned on the playground.
Wake up Barack. Your “racist” detractors have never been Republicans, conservatives, libertarians, constitutionalists or objectivists.
Identify your enemy.
Gerri Ferraro is a witch, too. She ain’t no “trip to Paris,” that’s for sure.
And what would happen if Obama’s camp said something like, “Well, the ONLY reason Hillary is running for president is because she was married to Bill. Not because she did such a fine job as a senator.”
That would be sweet.
That circled Democratic firing squad keeps getting tighter and tighter.
Woo hoo! Cat fight!
Damn militant feminist racist wackos anyway.
Barack “YouOweMeAnApology” Obama.
