I understand that elderly people can get pretty feisty in their senior years, but Andrew Young's comments about Sen. Barack Obama were disgusting, especially since Young is a civil rights icon. In an interview posted online, Young, 75, said Bill Clinton "is every bit as black as Barack" and "He's probably gone with more black women than Barack."
How Young, a former United Nations ambassador, went from Barack being too young to become President, to Hillary being the best candidate because "Bill is every bit as black as Barack" is beyond me. But Young's comments show what Barack Obama is up against. Instead of being ashamed of Clinton's sexual escapades in the White House, Young apparently thinks Clinton's philandering, and the fact that Hillary put up with it, makes Clinton an authentic black man. Although Young was quick to tell the interviewer he was "clowning," and got a few laughs from his audience, he disgraced himself and his legacy.
