« Humor on the Trail | Main | A New Theorem: Negative Campaigning in Primaries »




I, too, think that there is a different dimension and, actually, different themes with respect to Ferraro and Powers--but at the same time, now, the Ferraro--Reverend Wright comparison does not wash either. Whereas Ferraro made, as far as I can tell, a rare racial statement--the same is not true for Senator Obama's "spiritual adviser" Wright with far more distinct racial statements than Ms. Ferraro.
I still believe that Democrats have to cool it quickly--otherwise McCain will surely walk away the the victory.

I generally agree with the sentiments above - and wish that supporters on both sides would calm down because it is contributing to increasing negatives for both. I support Mr. Obama but will gladly vote for Hillary if she gets the nomination.

I disagree somewhat with the above comparison of Ferraro and Powers as equivelent. Powers thought her comments were off the record which does not alter the words but alters the audience. Ferraro's were said repeatedly on the record in print media and on TV. She intended them for a large audience.
