What isn't more right than Ferraro's comments?
In my opinion Ferraro has been pretty out of line. Even Hillary distanced herself from Ferraro's continuing controversial comments.
Correct me if I'm wrong, but wasn't Ferraro asserting that Barack lucked out by being a Black man running for President of America? That seems a non sequitur to me.
but since it's considered to be in his "best interest," nobody is saying anything about it.
say anything about it until you educate me on what the 'it' is in this case.
