Ruben Navarrette: Clinton camp sporting an unflattering lack of grace
Washington Post Writers Group
That is — to borrow a phrase — a fairy tale. When Hillary loses, she gets angry and condescending and terribly unappealing.
African-Americans, in particular, seem to be voting for Obama with a vengeance. And if this bright star were to be extinguished through methods that any reasonable person would consider unfair or racist, then we might get to a point where there is no voting — only vengeance. Michelle Obama set the example when she said in a recent interview that she wasn't sure if she could support Hillary Clinton as the Democratic nominee and that it would depend on the candidate's tone.
Camp Clinton would say that the former president did atone for his racially tinged comments by apologizing at a black church before Super Tuesday. But that was no apology. All Bill Clinton did was ask for a "second chance" and say that he had been waiting all his life to vote for an African-American for president. Of course, he said, he has also been waiting to vote for a woman for president. And we know which woman he's talking about.
