Geraldine Ferraro today stood by her controversial comments attributing Obama's success to his race. Ferraro is quoted as saying on a CBS morning show "It wasn't a racist comment, it was a statement of fact".
According to Ferraro, every negative comment about Obama results in a charge of racism. Ferraro said if request to do so, she would resign from her position on the Clinton Finance Committee but also would continue to raise money for Mrs. Clinton.
Ms. Ferraro also said she believed she was under attack because she is white. Mrs. Clinton's spokesman Mo Eleithee said their campaign does not agree with Ms. Ferraro's remarks.
