Hillary Clinton pulled out of a Jewish-sponsored rally against Mahmoud Ahmadinejad upon learning that Sarah Palin would participate.The fact that Clinton pulled out because of Sarah Palin being there is utter bullcrap. I really hope that the Senator reconsiders.
Organizers announced Tuesday that Palin, the Republican vice-presidential candidate and Alaska governor, will speak at the Sept. 22 rally organized by several Jewish groups to protest the Iranian president at the United Nations.
When Clinton aides were informed by reporters that Palin also would be participating, they became angry and said the New York senator would not participate, The Associated Press reported.
Clinton accepted the invitation to speak several weeks ago, before the Democratic National Convention, according to Malcolm Hoenlein, the executive vice chairman of the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations, a key group organizing the rally.
