Hillary showing her true colors

Sen. Clinton has sunk to a new low:

Clinton actually got an easy question. “I need you to tell us what distinguishes Democrats from Republicans right now,‚” she was asked.

Clinton's answer was provocative.

Said Clinton, ‚“When you look at the way the House of Representatives has been run, it has been run like a plantation and you know what I'm talking about..."

Some House Republicans took immediate offense at Senator Clinton's choice of words.

Said Republican Congressman Peter King, of Long Island, "It's always wrong to play the race card for political gain by using a loaded word like plantation. But it is particularly wrong to do so on Martin Luther King Day." (Source: CBS, Jan. 7, 2006)

I agree whole heartedly with Rep. King.

It's very sad to bring race into thiespeciallylly on Martin Luther King Day.

If a Republican had said that about either a Democrat held House or Senate, they would be painted as a racist and hung out to dry.

Is this the kind of language we want from a potential President? I didn't think so.
