Before you answer, look at this:
That person, sitting to Hillary Clinton's right, is Richard Mellon Scaife.
If you're not moved by that, a bit of background is in order.
I'll keep this simple.
Richard Mellon Scaife is the man who did more than just about any other person to try to ruin Bill and Hillary Clinton. He owns the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review--a newspaper that loses money and exists solely to demonize Democrats. He funded the Arkansas Project, the anti-Clinton witch hunt that eventually evolved into the vast right wing conspiracy. Ever hear the one about the Clintons murdering Vince Foster? That's Scaife. I could go on all day and night about this prick.

As you know, earlier today Hillary Clinton tried to stoke the Jeremiah Wright controversy by telling an editorial board meeting in Pittsburgh that Jeremiah Wright "would not have been my pastor" and then going on to note that she had denounced Don Imus in contrast to Obama's allegedly more tolerant attitude toward hate speech.Josh Marshall and Greg Sargent figured out that the editorial board in question was the editorial board of ... You guessed it. The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review.
Later in the afternoon she repeated the same comments at a press conference and when asked why she had chosen to engage Obama on the Wright controversy she seemed to suggest that rather than being intentional she was only providing an answer to a direct question. "Well I answered a question in an ed board today that was very specific about what I would have done," Clinton told the reporter, "And you know I'm just speaking for myself, and I was answering a question that was posed to me."
Not only was the editorial board there lobbing her Jeremiah Wright slow pitch softballs without mentioning for one second that Bill Clinton invited this guy to the White House when he solemnly sought the spiritual healing of a group of prominent religious leaders in the wake of the Lewinsky affair, but Dickie himself was sitting there, right next to Senator Clinton, playing along.
Just like nothing ever happened.
