hat tip to Francis Holland for pointing this out.

Sometimes I really love Donna Brazile. The Clintons, so big on demanding loyalty, rarely demonstrate it. Pastor Wright stood by Bill’s lying ass when he was at his lowest in his life! Hillary, though, goes out of her way to dis. Memories of Lani Guinier and Joycelyn Elders are dancing in my head.

According to the LA Times, via Black Politics on the Web,

DNC super-delegate Donna Brazile has warned Hillary Clinton to lay off Dr. Jeremiah Wright, Obama’s ex-pastor. Considering that Pastor Wright visited the Clintons in the White House, Brazile reminds Hillary that Wright did not abandon the Clintons [when Bill was being impeached over Monica’s blue dress,] so Hillary ought not abandon Pastor Wright now.

Donna Brazile — an uncommitted superdelegate of the Democratic National Convention and one of television’s few black, female political pundits — interjected an intriguing observation this afternoon into a discussion on CNN about Hillary Clinton‘s stiff-arming of the Rev. Jeremiah Wright.

In short, Brazile provided a pointed reminder that some voters (African Americans, in particular, we would think) might recall that Wright did not turn on Clinton’s husband during an hour of need for him.

( . . .)

Clinton could have contented herself with decrying Wright’s messages without saying, in essence, that no way would she tolerate an association with the likes of him.

That’s what Brazile picked up on, making a reference to Wright’s willingness to join dozens of other religious figures in attending an annual White House prayer breakfast just as the Starr report on Bill Clinton’s affair with Monica Lewinsky — in all its lurid detail — was about to come out. No doubt … LA TIMES

Let’s all call or write super-delegate Donna Brazile and thank her for speaking up for us in the face of Clinton’s attacks on Black people and the Black Church. Let’s ask her to take a more active and public role: info@brazileassociates.com
