"Hillary Clinton is going to become the Ron Paul of the Democratic party. There’s no way the super delegates can take this away from Barack Obama. There will be race riots in the streets if he wins enough super delegates...."

Was this Bill Clinton, Bob Kerry, or Geraldine Ferraro talking? If it were, it would be all over the mainstream media by now. No, it was spoken on the Monday, 5/19/08 edition of MSNBC's "Hardball" by Barack Obama admirer Michelle Bernard, an attorney, president of the International Women's Federation, and frequent Hardball guest. So there you have it: the super delegates should not exercise independent thought because if they do, according to Michelle Bernard (herself of Jamaican descent), black people will "riot in the streets."

Racist? probably not. Bigoted? maybe not. Ugly? Very.
