Geraldine Ferraro

Today, the web site Politico revealed that in 1995 Hillary Clinton supporter Geraldine Ferraro made race based comments about Jesse Jackson, much like she did this week regarding presidential candidate Barack Obama, causing an uproar. She resigned from the Clinton campaign today.

Previously, she stated, “If Jesse Jackson were not black, he wouldn’t be in the race.” Old habits die hard, but not harder than those shoulder pads in that photo posted above. Ah, the 80’s. Sometimes I miss it and sometimes I don’t.

β€œWASHINGTON (AP) – Geraldine Ferraro stepped down Wednesday from an honorary post in Hillary Rodham Clinton’s presidential campaign amid a controversy regarding her comments that Barack Obama wouldn’t be succeeding in the race for the White House if he weren’t black.” http://apnews.myway.com
