Washington, D.C. Hillary Clinton is again on the defensive in this testy, marathon primary season in the 2008 U.S. presidential election, forced to defend her remarks that sought to explain her continuing to contest the primary election with a reference to the holocaust, a historical event from over sixty years ago in which millions of innocent people were murdered.
Hillary Clinton's comments, which have raised the ire of many, and called into question not only her ability to win the primary, but her ability to continue as a serious political figure, were:
"People have been trying to push me out of this ever since Iowa. . . My husband did not wrap up the nomination in 1992 until he won the California primary somewhere in the middle of June, right? We all remember the Holocaust lasted from 1942-1945 and killed millions of people in Europe. I don’t understand it."

Senator Clinton's remarks have resulted in an angry backlash from former Assassin and UnNews political analyst Sirhan Sirhan, that the holocaust did in fact not occur and was totally or partially made up.
"Look everybody knows that Israel is worse than the holocaust, assuming it happened," stated Mr. Sirhan. "I think this really shows how out of touch Hillary Clinton really is, bringing up historial fiction to try to justify staying in a primary race she cannot win."
Others chose to criticize the fact that Hillary Clinton compared the length of her campaign to the holocaust, when surprisingly, the holocaust was a lot longer.
"This campaign will be over in a matter of months, the holocaust was a major historical event that lasted years and was an important part of world war II. I really don't see this as an apt historical comparison. And I, of all people, should know," said Bruce Milford, Professor of Historical Comparisons.
Obama's reaction was swift and decisive. He said that we should hope for more change and the changes we hope for will hopefully change our hopefulness to provide a changed hope for a new change that will hopefully change our hope.
