It's exactly what the Obama team wanted and it couldn't have come at a better time heading in to South Carolina where African-Americans make up a 50 percent majority of Democratic voters.

The Clinton's just can't seem to stay out of their own way. First Bill Clinton refers to Obama's presidential campaign as a "fairytale" and then Hillary makes the following statement:

“Dr. King’s dream began to be realized when President Lyndon Johnson passed the Civil Rights Act of 1964,” Clinton told FOX News last week in remarks that sparked the current conflict. “It took a president to get it done.”

Some say the comment takes away from Dr. King's accomplishments and sacrifice and others say the comment is simply blown out of proportion. Either way, if you're Hillary Clinton, why make the comment? What good could come from? We now know the bad that can come from it.
