On Tuesday morning while appearing on ABC’s Good Morning America show, Hillary Clinton slammed Obama’s 2008 campaign as sexist and said it was something that she and the President needed to work through.
“Beginning the process of working with then-Senator Obama after I ended my campaign, we had an awkward but necessary meeting to clear the air on a couple of issues, and one of them was the sexism that – unfortunately – was present in that ‘08 campaign,” she said to the host of the show, Robin Roberts.
Clinton wrote a new memoir titled “Hard Choices,” which told of how she rejected a request from the Obama campaign to wage an attack on vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin.
“That very first day, the Obama campaign said, ‘Well, we want you to go out there and criticize her,’ and I said ‘For what? For being a woman? No, let’s wait until we know where she stands, I don’t know anything about her. Do you know anything about her?’” she apparently told Obama’s campaign.
According to Politico, Palin sent out a tweet in response to Clinton’s revelation that had a picture of “Hard Choices” and said, “Look who fired the 1st shot on the real ‘war on women.’ Hint: it wasn’t the GOP. See this excerpt from Hillary’s book.”
Looks like Palin was right on the money when she said it’s the Democrats who have waged the war on women, even Hillary Clinton admitted to it.
