In Charleston, S.C., he's bound and determined to finger-jab and outburst his wife right out of a nomination:
"This is almost like once you accuse someone of racism and bigotry the facts become irrelevant," a red-faced Clinton said, staring down several print and TV reporters. "Not one single solitary citizen asked about any of this and they never do… They [Obama's camapign] are feeding you this because they know this is what you want to cover, this is what you live for, but this hurts the people of South Carolina—what they care about is not going to be in the newspapers tonight because you don’t care about it – what you care about is this and the Obama people know it — and they just spin you up on this and you happily go along."...
 
When a reporter (me) asked him if he was claiming Obama was injecting race into the campaign, he walked away and began shouting over his shoulder as he signed autographs: “You just want one more story -- shame on you! Shame on you, you just want one more story! Print the facts. Nobody ever prints any facts.”
Smoooth...
