Let me play devil’s advocate - why didn’t one person in the Clinton or McCain campaign ever broach this issue?
She probably did. That’s why she got to be Secretary of State!
Because they didn't want to be called racist.
You didn't question the One, it would be racist.
You didn't question His associations, it would be mean.
You didn't question His christianity, it was racist to question his black theology.
Didn't you read all those pseudo-headlines about violent mobs being instigated by Palin? Shouts of killing 0bama etc. at rally stops. Heck, I was at one stop and it didn't happen.
Hillary had a similar issues running her primary campaign...
Both of them got majorly baited by the 0bama campaign and the propaganda of the Press.
The McCain campaign didn't have the guts and you know what...if they didn't have the guts to deal with such a mundane issue of eligibility then I am glad McCain didn't win. We need a leader who isn't going to be bullied.
Whatever happens over the next 4 long years is going to be a crime.
Simplest answer is because they didn’t know to ask. Second simplest is that the fix is in and they were told not to ask.
In-on-the-fix AND a wimp
