Obama vs. Clinton

Just wanted to share this excerpt from today’s NY Times, covering yesterday’s Democratic Debate… my favorite quote to date in this presidential race.  Now- I must clarify that I do love Bill Clinton, but the line gets a little fuzzy as to whom Obama is racing against at times.

Still, the questions persisted about Mr. Clinton, who is scheduled to spend the week campaigning in South Carolina as Mrs. Clinton travels elsewhere. Mr. Obama, who would be the nation’s first black president, was asked about how the author Toni Morrison had bestowed that title on Mr. Clinton more than a decade ago.

“I think Bill Clinton did have an enormous affinity with the African-American community,” Mr. Obama said, praising Mr. Clinton for his longtime commitment to racial equality as a man who grew up in the South.

Lightening the moment, he added: “I would have to investigate more Bill’s dancing abilities and some of this other stuff before I accurately judged whether in fact he was a brother.”

    That is an interesting picture. Looking at that makes me think they look like they could be siblings. Oma
