Geraldine Ferraro isn’t the only former Democratic candidate taking sides in the Obama/Clinton battle: Bill Bradley, who ran for president against Al Gore in 2000, has accused the Clintons of “lying” in Hillary Clinton’s pursuit of the presidency.
“The bigger the lie, the better the chance they think they’ve got. That’s been their whole approach,” the Obama backer told The Sunday Times. “She’s going to lose a whole generation of people who got involved in politics believing it could be something different.”
Bradley, the former New Jersey whose presidential candidacy has drawn comparisons with Obama’s run, also slammed Bill Clinton on “The NewsHour with Jim Lehrer” Wednesday, as the Christian Science Monitor reports.
“Are there favors attached to $500,000 or $1 million contributions?” Bradley said in reference to Clinton’s decision not to disclose contributors to his presidential library. “And what do I mean by favors? I mean, pardons that are granted, investigations that are squelched, contracts that are awarded, regulations that are delayed.”
Bradley knocks Clintons for – (as if you couldn’t guess) – lying!
