Hillary’s RFK assassination reference

From CBS.news: Clinton References RFK Assassination In Defending Length of Campaign

“My husband did not wrap up the nomination in 1992 until he won the California primary somewhere in the middle of the June, right? We all remember Bobby Kennedy was assassinated in June in California. I don’t understand it.”

This seems like a pretty glib statement for Hillary to make.  She later said that it was just a historical reference to how RFK continued to campaign through June until his assassination.

Hillary’s correct that RFK campaigned through June, but he didn’t even enter the race until March 16th!  Four days after the first primary of New Hampshire, March 12th.  In 1968 there were still major primaries like California to win.  In 2008, there aren’t any big prizes left to win.  Obama, has a majority of the pledged delegates.
