The Ferraro Comment(s) 

Keith speaks with Howard Fineman.

The politician who first broke the glass ceiling that had kept women off the Presidential tickets… Has answered criticism about her startling conclusion that Senator Obama is only “in the position he is in” because he’s a black man… By bristling that anybody who quote “says let’s address reality and the problems we’re facing in this world, you’re accused of being racist, so you have to shut up. Racism works in two different directions. I really think they’re attacking me because I’m white. How’s that?” Our third story on the Countdown: It is not clear who is the “they” in the follow-up statement from Geraldine Ferraro, the 1984 Democratic nominee for Vice President, and now a fund-raiser and speaker for the Clinton Campaign. But among those who criticized her depiction of Obama as some sort of “Equal Opportunity Hire” in the presidential race — was Senator Clinton. Though Senator Clinton has not fired former Congresswoman Ferraro.
