Sharpton to Bill Clinton : 'Shut Up'

Sharpton to Bill Clinton: 'Shut Up'



Quote:
Rev. Al Sharpton on Monday weighed in on the raging debate inside the Democratic Party over former President Bill Clinton's advocacy on behalf of his wife's campaign, with two choice words for the former president: "Shut up."



On ABC's "The View," Sharpton said voters are hearing "race charges, race-tinged rhetoric" in the Democratic primary campaign, and called on the former president to cease.



"I think it's time for him to just be quiet," said Sharpton, who was a Democratic presidential candidate in 2004. "I think it's time for him to stop. As one of the most outspoken people in America, there's a time to shut up, and I think that time has come."



Sharpton didn't say which comments in particular bothered him. But many Democrats were particularly upset that the former president made an explicit comparison of Obama's campaign to Jesse Jackson's victories in South Carolina in 1984 and 1988, in an apparent attempt to explain why his wife didn't win the South Carolina primary on Saturday.



For his part, Jackson told The New York Times that he wasn't bothered by the comparison. Still, he told the newspaper that he had spoken to both Obama and President Clinton over the weekend, and told both to "take it to a higher ground."
At this point, I just want to click my heels three times and maybe come back to reality...

Say, CN, those must be the two best words Sharpton ever said, especially to Bill Clinton, as if Clinton thinks he is Oz himself.

Makes me wonder if somebody like the Sharptons, the Clintons, and the Obamas are not enjoying the holy war?

This could all be playing in to Clinton's hands.This "conversation" may have been exactly what he wanted. It could be he knew he would get this reaction from all of the media when he offered his little Jessie Jackson quirp. I'll agree with those here that think for the first time Sharpton has said soemthing worthwhile.
