Last night I watched the returns from the South Carolina Primary and even I was amazed that Barrack Obama had thoroughly beaten the Clintons by almost double the margin that was predicted. I watched Obama give his thank you address to a crowd of his supporters and he drilled home the reasons why he had won such an overwhelming victory over the Clintons. The Clintons had played the "race baiting" game and the people of South Carolina saw through this ploy and delivered Barrack Obama one of the few victories he will see in the democrat primaries.
Later I had made my tea and settled down after getting home from work. I listened to the speech Clinton gave to her disaffected supporters. Clinton told them this was a set back but she and her husband would go on campaigning to eventually win the primaries and go on to beat the Republicans in the fall. Clinton said she wanted to do this so she could give out free health care to everyone, make the rich poor and to restore the moral authority of America in the world's eyes.
I thought about that last statement for a moment, "moral authority". Then I thought about the the woman that just made this statement, "return the moral authority of America". I don't know about anyone else but it seemed to me that after watching the the downright dirty race baiting the Clintons used to try and beat Barrack Obamma in the South Carolina primary, the last words you could use in the same sentence to describe the actions of the Clintons is anything but "moral authority".
