I’m sure you’ve read about it.
“My husband did not wrap up the nomination in 1992 until he won the California primary somewhere in the middle of June, right? We all rememberwas assassinated in June in California. You know I just, I don’t understand it,” she said, dismissing the idea of abandoning the race.
First, I ran for delegate from DC for Jerry Brown in 1992. Our primary was in May, and by that time it was clear that Bill Clinton would be the Democratic nominee — even if he didn’t have all the delegates necessary for the nomination until June.
But, more importantly, I think Clinton’s remarks about RFK have been overblown. I always love Keith Olberman’s special comments, but his fake outrage was a bit over the top.
I didn’t take it that Clinton thinks she needs to stay in the race in case Obama is assassinated. She was simply, and inaccurately observing that it is common for Dem races to be decided in June (June is the new March!). To me, she just seemed to be trying to tell people that it’s not over yet.
Waiting for Obama to be killed?
