Hillary Clinton: I Refused to Attack Sarah Palin
What difference does it make?
Check it out:
Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton reveals in her new book that Barack Obama’s team asked her to attack Alaska Governor Sarah Palin after Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) chose her as his running mate in the 2008 presidential race.
“[The Obama camp] immediately issued a dismissive statement and reached out to me in hopes I would follow suit,” she wrote. “But I wouldn’t.”
The details of the event have been published by CBS, which has already obtained a copy of the book scheduled for release on June 10.
“I was not going to attack Palin just for being a woman appealing for support from other women,” she wrote. “I didn’t think it made political sense, and it didn’t feel right. So I said no.”
Palin has addressed Clinton’s potential run for president in recent months, including the outcry from Democrats and members of the media in response to Karl Rove’s comments about her health.
