Donna Brazile sides with McCain in Hagee flap

The rappers who support Barack Obama would likely call Democratic strategist Donna Brazile a "n-----" and "b-----." But she's not concerned.

Brazile, a CNN talking head who managed Al Gore's 2000 Presidential campaign, tells this reporter that it's "plain stupid" to expect Obama to renounce the rappers and equally dumb to ask John McCain to "renounce, denounce and explain" his endorsement by controversial minister John Hagee.

"If we get into the business of asking every political leader to renounce, denounce and reject people who are favorably inclined to back someone, will we ever get anything done?" she asks.

Still, Brazile, a Democratic superdelegate, expects the Republicans to make an issue of Obama's collaboration with rappers.

"Of course, the GOP will play their old hand in roughing up Obama, Clinton, etc," she says.
