Want proof the Dems play the race card?

Well, here it is. Via Fox News. I have added my own comments in italics.

NEW YORK — Sen. Hillary Clinton on Monday blasted the Bush administration as
"one of the worst" in U.S. history - You'd think he'd, like, gotten
impeached or something
- and compared the Republican-controlled House of
Representatives to a plantation where dissenting voices are squelched. - Oh,
like Vince Foster?
- Speaking during a Martin Luther King Jr. Day event, - Convenient timing, eh? -Clinton also offered an apology to a group of
Hurricane Katrina survivors "on behalf of a government that left you behind,
that turned its back on you." -I never saw her lift a finger during Katrina.
Why wasn't she volunteering? Oh, that's right, she was preparing for press
-Her remarks were met with thunderous applause by a mostly
black audience at the Canaan Baptist Church of Christ in Harlem. - Anyone
here surprised?
-The House "has been run like a plantation, and you know
what I'm talking about", - No, what exactly are you talkin'
about, Hillary? -
said Clinton, D-N.Y. "It has been run in a way
so that nobody with a contrary view has had a chance to present legislation, to
make an argument, to be heard."

So there you have it. Playing the race card and tossing around incendiary phrases like "plantation" that have nothing to do with your point, spinning or outright making up events, pretending to fight for the "little guy" in a ridiculously transparent bid for votes, and attacking Republicans. Typical Hillary.
