The racially charged crossfire between the Clinton and Obama camps continued today, as Bill Clinton said on a radio show he had a "a list of 80 attacks" from the Illinois senator on his wife. Clinton had been asked to respond to a remark made by BET founder Robert Johnson, in introducing the senator at a black church in South Carolina yesterday, that included a coy reference to Obama's drug history.
Johnson said the couple were "deeply and emotionally involved in black issues when Barack Obama was doing something in the neighborhood that I won't say what he was doing, but he said it in his book." The billionaire entrepreneur later claimed he was referring to the Illinois senator's time "spent as a community organizer." Bill Clinton said today Johnson should be "taken at his word," but Obama's campaign is calling the remark "irresponsible."
