One step further

Hillary Cliton has taken some heat for saying
For the last five years, we've had no. Power. At All. And that makes a big difference, because when you look at the way the House of Representatives has been run, it has been run like a plantation. And you know what I'm talkin' about.
What I expected was the legion of Clinton haters to have a field day, and the supports to sheepishly acknowledge that the comment is in poor taste. Not so! She is standing by her remarks and is backed up by most her colleagues. Not to be outdone, Barrack Obama noted that her comments had a kernel of truth to them, and he also suggested that all of America is like a plantation: with special interests being the slave owners and regular joes like you and me being "slaves".
[Obama] told CNN's "American Morning" he believed that Clinton was merely expressing concern that special interests play such a large role in writing legislation that "the ordinary voter and even members of Congress who aren't in the majority party don't have much input."
How long before the Dixie Chicks write their new hit single "Midnight Train to Canada"?
