Obama is lucky he’s black, says top Hillary surrogate Geraldine Ferraro

I’ll let Markos do the commentary:

More classiness, from one of Clinton’s top surrogates, Geraldine Ferraro.

If Obama was a white man, he would not be in this position. And if he was a woman (of any color) he would not be in this position. He happens to be very lucky to be who he is. And the country is caught up in the concept.

Ferraro isn’t some unknown lower-level or obscure advisor, but one of her top fundraisers, member of Clinton’s finance committee, and a former Democratic vice presidential nominee.

Update: Comment by slatersan:

She’s half right

If he were a white man…

the race would be over…

and he’d be the nominee.
