A short news report from My Way:
LAS VEGAS (AP) – Democratic presidential rivals Hillary Rodham Clinton and Barack Obama blamed aides and campaign surrogates Tuesday night for fueling a campaign controversy over race, jointly pledging at a debate on the birthday of Martin Luther King Jr. to put the matter behind them.
Obama said “not only in hindsight, but going forward,” he regretted that his staff had prodded reporters to pursue the issue.
“Our supporters, our staff, get overzealous. They start saying things that I would not say,” added the most viable black candidate in history.
“We both have exuberant and sometimes uncontrollable supporters,” Clinton said in the opening moments of a two-hour round-table debate televised on MSNBC. “We need to get this campaign where it should be,” said the former first lady, seeking to become the first woman to occupy the White House.
The race issue has been put to bed and I think both sides, Obama and Clinton, will be much more careful when treading in that realm in the future.
