It's not Really Hillary vs. Obama. It's more Gender vs. Race.

Geraldine Ferraro, the 1984 vice presidential candidate, suggested Barack Obama achieved his status in the presidential race because he's black. As a result, the Obama camp wants her fired.

Hillary said of the Ferraro statement "I do not agree with that. It's regrettable that any of our supporters … say things that kind of veer off into the personal." (USA Today)

Ferraro didn’t help the cause, defending herself by saying “Racism works in two different directions. I really think they're attacking me because I'm white. How's that?" (CNN)

And the ball is tossed back on the Obama court.....
