Speaking during a Martin Luther King Jr. Day event, Clinton also offered an apology to a group of Hurricane Katrina survivors "on behalf of a government that left you behind, that turned its back on you." Her remarks were met with thunderous applause by a mostly black audience at the Canaan Baptist Church of Christ in Harlem.Although I can't help but wonder if these words will come back and bite her in the ass, specifically the "plantation" part. Then again, it's further evidence that she's not running in 2008-- unless she's running as a left-wing maverick. (As much as the GOP and right-wingers like to paint her up as a tarty uber liberal, one just has to look at her actual record to see that she's not.)
The House "has been run like a plantation, and you know what I'm talking about," said Clinton, D-N.Y. "It has been run in a way so that nobody with a contrary view has had a chance to present legislation, to make an argument, to be heard."
"We have a culture of corruption, we have cronyism, we have incompetence," she said. "I predict to you that this administration will go down in history as one of the worst that has ever governed our country."
