Unfortunately for Clinton, it was she who made a campaign-ending gaffe while answering reporters' questions about why she has stayed in the race:
"My husband did not wrap up the nomination in 1992 until he won the California primary somewhere in the middle of June, right? We all remember Bobby Kennedy was assassinated in June in California. I don't understand it," she said, dismissing calls to drop out.In other words, she's sticking around in case someone decides to assassinate Obama.
Hillary Clinton has shown herself to be a clumsy, accident-prone candidate who says and does stupid things on camera. First it was the Tuzla "sniper-gate," now she has invoked political assassination as a reason for her persistence. This is just creepy, I mean the whole interview and her attitude is just creepy. The fatal gaffe comes about 50 seconds into the video.
Any chance Hillary Clinton had of convincing super delegates that she is a better candidate than Barack Obama just evaporated.
