Bill O'Reilly became a good venue for Clinton to talk about Wright because she didn't bring it up; O'Reilly did. So the campaign had plausible deniability.
The New York Post -- being the New York Post -- characterizes Clinton's comments on O'Reilly this way: "Hill gives O Wright cross."
The New York Daily News takes a similar tack, saying "Clinton rubbed salt into Barack Obama's wounds" with her comments on FOX.
The New York Post writes an item today citing a Time story that Bill Clinton told confidantes he's "appalled" at how his wife's campaign had been run and that it is tantamount to "political malpractice."
(It's worth pointing out, however, that the story the Post cites is more than TWO MONTHS OLD! The Time piece is from Feb. 28.)
Per NBC's Robert Windrem, Iran's ambassador to the UN has protested to the United Nations Clinton's comments from last week threatening to "totally obliterate" the Islamic Republic if it used a nuclear attack on the U.S., Israel or any other Mideast ally. In a letter distributed by the UN Mission yesterday, Iran's acting ambassador and Charge d'Affaires, Medhi-Danesh Yazdi, protested the comments to both Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon and the Permanent Security Council. (Iran's ambassador is home in Tehran.)
Iran "expresses its deep concern for and strong condemnation of such a provocative, unwarranted and irresponsible statement against the Iranian nation and civilization. Such a statement is a violation of the most fundamental provisions of the United Nations Charter and the basic principles of international law and is against the global efforts to strengthen the regional and international peace and security," the letter said.
Iran also stated it has no intention to attack any nation, but added that it "would not hesitate to act in self defense to respond to any attack against the Iranian nation and to take appropriate defensive measures to protect itself." The acting ambassador asked the Secretary General to circulate the letter among members of the Security Council. The AP has more.
Uh, oh. It's never a good sign when a trailing candidate begins to cite Truman. Clinton did so yesterday, per NBC/NJ's Mike Memoli "But that we're up to the fight that lies ahead. So if the best example is Harry Truman, and I kind of like that. Because you remember that headline, 'Dewey Defeats Truman.' If the headline is Harry Truman, that's encouragement to me. Because I believe that we can, just like Harry Truman do what is necessary to protect and defend our country and begin once again to make the future ours."
