Barack Obama advisor quits over 'inexcusable remarks'
Samantha Power has just quit her role as a foreign policy advisor to Barack Obama after a dust-up over some of her comments, including calling Hillary Clinton a "monster." The statement:
“With deep regret, I am resigning from my role as an advisor to the Obama campaign effective today. Last Monday, I made inexcusable remarks that are at marked variance from my oft-stated admiration for Senator Clinton and from the spirit, tenor, and purpose of the Obama campaign. And I extend my deepest apologies to Senator Clinton, Senator Obama, and the remarkable team I have worked with over these long 14 months."
