Dem Debate: Obama, Hillary Blame Supporters

Switching gears to the Democratic side, the candidates at the Las Vegas debate were asked about the recent identity war that has broken out.

“Neither race nor gender should be a part of this campaign,” Clinton said, despite the fact that she has made her gender a central part of her candidacy.

She also blamed some of the recent controversies on “exuberant and sometimes uncontrollable supporters,” and Obama followed up by saying supporters were “overzealous.”

Clinton was also asked about Robert Johnson’s comments–Tim Russert brought up Obama’s drug use in the context of asking the question, about whether she would prevent him from speaking at events in the future. She stuck by Johnson’s absurd defense of his statements, that he was talking about Obama’s days as a community organizer.

Obama also was asked about his “You’re likable enough” comment, and said it was misinterpreted, that he actually meant that she was “plenty likable.”
