How do I know? I can't get into his head, especially now that he is in a better place. I thought you hated Ted Kennedy, BTW?

As long as he didn't refer to Obama as a shoe shiner I guess its not racist right?

I'm not a fan of EITHER of these guys, but this is silly.

How was Obama not equal to Clinton a few years ago? How's this...Clinton was president of the most powerful nation on the planet, while Obama was a community organizer with aspirations to being junior senator from Illinois.

Is the inequality there not strikingly obvious?

Because he was really fond of Obama? Because his racism-radar needs adjustment? Because Clinton really doesn't like black people? I don't know and neither do you.

Getting coffee is more a stereotype for women.

How about, if he didn't say anything about, or alluding to, his race, then it's not racist?

Well - I'd say Bill is likely sexist and this comment marks him as a jerk, anyway.

Here, let me help out so that everybody can declare victory and this thread can sink to the bottom of the forum where it so rightfully belongs.

Liberals are racist!

Republicans are racist.

Black/African Americans are racist.

White folks are racist!

Hell American is racist!!

But black/African American racist like liberal white racist more than conservative white racist. So, posting racist quotes from liberal white racist isn't going to change the fact that black/African American racist will continue to dislike Republican white racist.

Think of it being like an argument between Bud vs Bud-lite.

If you think Bill's supposed dislike of Obama is why Ted endorsed Obama, I have a bridge to no where I'd like to sell. Ted was an astute politician and he could judge a winner who could go the distance when he saw one.
