APOLOGIZE AND MOVE ON:

Obama aide forced out for calling Clinton 'a monster': Samantha Power, a Pulitzer Prize-winning Harvard professor, resigns after making disparaging remarks about the former first lady during an interview in London. She apologizes to both Democrats. (Michael Muskal and Maria L. La Ganga, 3/07/08, Los Angeles Times)

The campaign, which had earlier distanced itself from Power, this morning announced that she had resigned.

Do we really need a politics where saying one thing, no matter how
idiotic, forces you out?

If Obama's campaign wasn't so fragile (and premised on him being the harbinger of some sort of swell friendly new political MO) she wouldn't be out.

Apparently Obama doesn't suffer from the virtue of loyalty like Bush, but let's his people sink or swim on their own. Nice guy.

Samantha Power has been saying idiotic things for weeks. They had to let her go, or she would have become the story.
