Makes you wonder how he every became president. No respect for anyone.

With what comes out of his mouth you have to think and wonder if he really wants his wife to get the job. Keep up the good work Bill we will take it. Obama 2008-2016

The Clintons need to return to Dogpatch. They're nothing but a couple of arrogant hicks.

After Obama won SC Bill stated the Jesse Jackson had also won SC in '84 and '88. The intent of this comment was an attempt to shrug off Hillary's primary loss to Obama as a 'blacks always win in SC' type thing and to paint Obama as a black candidate. Clearly, as following primary results showed, Obama has more white support than Jackson.

Whether one thinks this was racist or just campaign spin is up to the reader.

I don't know. . . . At a minimum it brought race forefront into the mix. But more than that, it was a sly attempt by Bill Clinton to knowingly try to paint Obama as a "black" candidate on par with Jesse and not address real issues.
