Clinton staffer on comparing Obama to Kennedy: Kennedy was assassinated, remember

Really?  That's what it's come down to? "Sure, Obama has hope, and he has good ideas, and he's a good speaker - but remember, Kennedy was assasinated! It took a real boring president like Johnson to get civil rights passed!"

It's getting really weird in the Hilary camp out there. Here's the quote:

Today, in Dover, Francine Torge, a former John Edwards supporter, said this while introducing Mrs. Clinton: “Some people compare one of the other candidates to John F. Kennedy. But he was assassinated. And Lyndon Baines Johnson was the one who actually” passed the civil rights legislation.
