Obama chides Clinton for playing gender card
reuters ^ | 11/2/07 | reuters

Posted on 11/02/2007 7:45:23 AM PDT by GeorgiaDawg32

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Democrat Barack Obama, the only black candidate for president, accused rival Hillary Clinton on Friday of hiding behind her gender after she was pummelled in a debate with six male candidates.

"I am assuming and I hope that Sen. Clinton wants to be treated like everybody else," the Illinois senator said in an interview with NBC's "Today Show."

Lemme guess, the next line was, "only I, as a black man, can get away with that kind of cheap tactic"?

"Obama chides Clinton for playing gender card"

But - which gender card did Hillary play?

Eh, let’s be fair, Obama hasn’t really pulled the race card much... at least, if he has, I’ve missed it, and political junkie that I am, if I missed it, so did 90%+ of everyone else. At the very least, he could be playing it a whole lot more than he has, for a Democrat, and he’s certainly playing the race card less than Hillary is playing the gender card.

He was speaking a day after New York Sen. Clinton -- the only woman running for president -- urged women voters to rally behind her against "the boys club of presidential politics."

Nice of the reporter to play the gender card.

Hey Barak, that’s nothing. Didn’t you see her trying to act black at that Selma speech a few months ago?

Oh, come on... his entire campaign is "never mind that I'm a rabid socialist empty suit and have no experience, vote for me to prove you're not a bigot".

What a shameful display! She did the same crap in 2000 with Rick Lazio. This is the way it works; only a fellow democrat can call her out on this childish nonsense.

Obama’s right on this. Feminist candidates, expecially Hillary, are notorious for boo-hoo-hooing that they’re being picked on when they run for office. They insist they’re as tough as any man, but the moment they’re verbally roughed up a little by a male opponent, their response is to play the poor defenseless female role.

Clinton must be going NUTS!! She can’t criticize Osamabama much without the fear of offending the blacks, without whom she nor any on the left have a prayer of winning anything (to bad the poor blacks have no clue of the power they do hold)

Exactly. I hate how the media is compelled to point out the blindingly obvious. As though we’ve somehow forgotten that hill (allegedly) is female or obama is black. To most of us, those things just don’t matter. I think they do it just to continue to emphasize to all us poor, ignorant folks that these “qualifications” matter.

No kidding. They both should understand something. If you can't stand the heat, get out of the kitchen.

I predict that hillary will blurt out the "n" word in public the next few weeks. She is too unstable to be the leader of this country.

Man, look at those face wrinkles! I'm a couple of years older than she is, and my face doesn't wrinkle up like that when I assume the "serious thinker" position!

Looks like Botox only goes so far!

"the boys club of presidential politics."

If Obama wanted to play the race card, there it is. I'd like to see the press tie themselves in knots, trying to explain how Hillary misspoke and didn't mean anything racist.

By the articles I’ve on FR, I won’t be surprised about that. The only thing is how bad she will act when she blows.

There's a "Huma" or "Monica" joke there somewhere...

Rush says that the Drive-Bys are not happy...Mrs. Clinton doesn’t have the talent to lie like Bubba. She’s not going to get away with this hedging for the next 13 months. Rush says that the bloom is off the rose—she just doesn’t have it!

We shall see.

If the media ever truly decides not to provide cover for her...she's toast.

Rush says that right now they are very disappointed in her. However, if she does well in the next debate, he says they will be cheering with—what a comeback!

Has he really been saying that? (”Vote for me to prove you’re not a bigot”?) I suppose I’ve just missed it, it’s not like I go out of my way to listen to Obama, but it had been my impression he was trying to go for the quiet unassuming statesman pose, the few times I’ve seen him talk I didn’t really get the Jackson/Sharpton vibe from him.

You OBVIOUSLY haven’t read the rule about the “Eternal Get out of Jail Free” card that Hillary possesses. That trumps all:)
