Keith Olbermann's Special Comment on Hillary Clinton

Keith Olbermann's Special Comment on Hillary Clinton

In last night's Special Comment, Keith Olbermann painted HIllary Clinton as a dangerously passive figure in her own campaign. In his first ever Democrat-focused Special Comment, Keith regretfully reprimanded Clinton for not forcefully distancing herself from Geraldine Ferraro, whom he says dismissed Barack Obama's candidacy as nothing more than an equal-opportunity stunt. He labeled Ferraro's comments as manifestations of cheap, ignorant, and vile racism.

Keith never accused Clinton of being racist herself, instead disparaging her for following the perilous advice of advisers, who have left a mark of racial divisiveness on her candidacy.

I especially enjoyed the "experience montage" in which Keith compared great presidents with slight experience to presidential failures with perfect resumes. Keith effectively made the argument that either Clinton or Obama will inevitably have to present against the super-experienced McCain.

Check out the video for yourself. Do you think Clinton should have been as outraged as Keith by Ferraro's comments? Should she have emphatically distanced herself from the former congresswoman? Does Hillary need to grab the reigns back from her strategists, or should she be judged by the company she keeps?
