Yesterday, NPR radio played a clip of former president Bill Clinton defiantly pointing out that for Hillary to bow out now would in essence disenfranchise states with upcoming primaries. Ala Howard Dean, Clinton began ticking down a list of states..."Indiana, North Carolina, Kentucky, Oregon..." But, he MISPRONOUNCED OREGON! YES, A FORMER PRESIDENT DOES NOT KNOW HOW TO PRONOUNCE ONE OF THE 50 STATES.
He pronounced it Or-eh-GONE. The proper pronunciation is OR-eh-gun. I should know, having lived there for almost 10 years.
A year ago, I never would have thought that Bill would be a detriment to Hillary's campagin, but this is just the latest in a string of guffaws or, in some cases, just outright bad judgement.
