BILL O'REILLY, HOST: What is the downside of having a woman become the president of the United States? ...Not any more. Obama is now running as a black man with a black agenda. He desperately wants to identify with blacks who are always whining about alleged injustices that happened decades ago, and blaming white America for everything. He even blamed his white grandmother for harboring racist thoughts after some rude black man hassled her while she was waiting for a bus. All the pundits are praising Obama's recent speech on race, but I think that it was a disaster for his campaign. Those who think that it would be wonderful to elect a president who transcends race will have to look for a new candidate.
RUDOV: ... The main problem I have is if a woman has a female agenda. If she doesn't have a female agenda, if she just wants to be an executive for all the people, then all I care about is if she's qualified. And I have no qualms about having a female president.
But if we take Hillary Clinton, she specifically does have a female agenda. All you have to do is look at her Web site. Now let's go back a couple of months to around January 11, where she was campaigning in Las Vegas, and a man from the crowd — and you can check this out on the Internet — a man from the crowd yelled out, "Please help me. My wife is an illegal." And her response was, "No woman is an illegal." And that's exactly what I mean by a female agenda. ...
But Hillary embodies the female agenda. She wants to be the feminist in chief. She represents women. It says so on her Web site. And a lot of women are voting for her because she's a woman. ... Contrast that with Barack Obama.
Update: Obama clarifies (with audio here):
The hosts asked Obama about his speech at the Constitution Center.He needs to shut up.
They zeroed in on comments he made about his white grandmother and her racial phobias.
"The point I was making was not that my grandmother harbors any racial animosity," he said. "But she is a typical white person. If she sees somebody on the street that she doesn't know. . .there's a reaction in her that doesn't go away and it comes out in the wrong way."
