MSNBC’s Keith Olberman took on the controversial comments made by Sen. Hillary Clinton adviser Geraldine Ferraro, who was the first female major party candidate for vice president in 1984 with Walter Mondale. The comments, which Olberman quoted from a Feb. 26 Fox radio broadcast were as follows:
If Barack Obama were a white man, would we be talking about this, as a potential real problem for Hillary? If he were a woman of any color, would he be in this position that he’s in? Absolutely not.”
Here the talking head and former ESPN commentator on the subject in his “Special Comment” address.
