This Washington Post reports on how close Johnson is to the Clintons and suggests why the Clintons refused to distance themselves from Johnsons' despicable remarks. And he doesn't back off from his remarks.
Of note, Johnson met the Clintons at the home of Marion Wright Edelman. Edelman wrote a glowing blurb for Obama's first book: "Perceptive and wise, this book will tell you something about yourself whether you are black or white."
You can sense the Clinton campaigns' frustration. Johnson again:
"This is a fight between who's going to control the liberal soul of the party," Johnson said. "The people who don't like the Clintons have found the Clintons' worst nightmare -- a very dynamic, talented black man to run up against them."Shame on him and shame on the Clintons. Read the whole thing.
