From TPM Election Central:
Top Hillary Supporter Says She's Showing "Desperation"

Here's some audio of a stunning rebuke that a top Hillary supporter gave her in response to her comparisons of the Michigan/Florida controversy to the country's historical civil rights struggles.
The supporter, New York Governor David Paterson, said flatly on a local radio show that Hillary was starting to show "a little desperation.""I would say at this point we're starting to see a little desperation on the part of the woman who I support and I'll support until whatever time she makes a different determination," Paterson told a New York radio station, clearly weighing his words very carefully.
On the Michigan primary in particular: "You have to rule out the undecideds in Michigan. You have to assume she won 100 percent to nothing in Michigan. I don't think anybody in their right mind would do that, nor would they see it as a civil rights issue."
Well, I guess the Black folk here aren't the only ones a little peturbed by Hillpatine's assertion that Michigan and Florida was some big Civil Rights Issue.
