Geraldine Ferraro, Hillary Clinton, Philadelphia Kitchen Sink Strategy, Election 08

It's the new Clinton "Kitchen Sink Strategy" now the Geraldine Ferraro strategy. Get Geraldine
to make some bigoted and color aroused statements, and twist the script on the Barack Obama campaign. There are many people who see through Geraldine Ferraro. As RJ Eskow has noted,
Geraldine Ferraro, once a beacon of hope for the possibility of a new era in American politics, has now disgraced herself for a second time. Today's 'clarifying' comments regarding last week's racist remarks were, if anything, even more offensive. They, and now Ms. Ferraro herself, symbolize a dark and ugly political era that belongs firmly in the past. And by allowing her to remain with her campaign in an official capacity, Hillary Clinton has brought the shadow of Ms. Ferraro's disgrace upon herself. Read More

Clearly, Clintons' "Throw the Kitchen Sink at Obama strategy" is a strategic and deliberate.

AAPP: These old throw backs from days gone bye, need to just... go away. There plan is to bloody Obama up and have white women and white men hate Obama for attacking Geraldine and Hillary.

Did Hillary get a face lift? Look at her pictures in 2005 versus 2008. Speaking of looking, lets have a look at
Hillary Clinton’s Tax Return

Check out Andrew Sullivan and The Daily Dish:

The Clinton campaign's decision not to reject or denounce Geraldine Ferraro's racial gaffe strikes me as a conscious and deliberate one. The Obama campaign saw Samantha Power resign for a less offensive remark. But Ferraro is now on the networks and airwaves amping up the volume, and Clinton, in classic passive-aggressive mode, is merely "disagreeing." Isn't this obviously about Pennsylvania? Isn't this classic Rove-Morris politics - to keep designating Obama a beneficiary of affirmative action and Clinton a victimized white woman in order to racially polarize a primary where Clinton needs white ethnic votes?

Ferraro's original gaffe was an accident. The compounding of it is a strategy. A reader comments:

I'm willing to bet damn near anything Bill thought this up himself. As a white male Bill realized he couldn't push Obama into the ghetto box, but what a brilliant strategy! - let's have another "disadvantaged group" lambaste Obama through an elderly white female surrogate to divide and conquer in the victimology sweepstakes. Since whites outnumber blacks, and white females in particular outnumber black voters, it's an incredibly audacious gambit to win the nomination. Throwing the kitchen sink apparently means turning the Democratic Party into an all out race versus gender war, ultimately allowing Bill and Hillary to either emerge on top or for Obama to be so badly damaged that the Superdelegates will fear he's lost the white vote in the general election. That's exactly the game the Clinton's have set in motion here.
