Obama Adviser Quits Over Monster Comment

Headline: Obama's Adviser Quits Over "Monster" Comment

Obama campaign aide Samantha Power has quit this morning over a remark where she called Hillary Clinton "a monster" in an interview with The Scotsman.

The comment was in regard to the Clinton campaign's perceived ruthlessness heading into the primaries in Ohio. Power said, "In Ohio, they are obsessed and Hillary is going to town on it, because she knows Ohio's the only place they can win. . . . She is a monster, too – that is off the record – she is stooping to anything." It was apparently a slip of the tongue she tried to recant immediately.

Are you outraged by this comment? Did it do any harm? Was the paper wrong to report it after she realized her mistake? Should she have quit?
