Geraldine Ferraro On Barak Hussein Obama
Geraldine Ferraro, the 1984 Democratic nominee for vice president, is the latest high-profile supporter to ignite an uproar in the Democratic race with a controversial comment.
Ferraro, who backs Hillary Clinton and is raising money for her, was excoriated yesterday by Barack Obama's campaign for suggesting that he wouldn't be a contender if he were a white man or a woman of any color. "He happens to be very lucky who he is," she told a newspaper in California last week. The country, she said, is "caught up in the concept" of the first African-American president.
