News: Kennedy, Delegates, Colombia, Laugh-In

ABC News: Sen. Barack Obama gives Hillary Clinton the benefit of the doubt that she had no hidden meaning when she invoked the assassination of Bobby Kennedy as an explanation for remaining in the Democratic presidential race.

“I have learned that when you are campaigning for as many months as Sen. Clinton and I have been campaigning,” he told the Puerto Rico radio station Isla, “sometimes you get careless in terms of the statements that you make. And I think that is what happened here.

“Sen. Clinton says that she did not intend any offense by it,” he added, “and I would take her at her word on that.”

2008 Democratic Convention Watch: On Saturday, Hillary Clinton netted an additional delegate, Verna Cleveland (GA). Obama netted 3, Stephen Leeds (GA), W. Patrick Goggles (WY), and Tony Knowles (AK).

CNN: The leader of Colombia’s largest leftist rebel group is dead, a spokesman for the nation’s defense ministry said Saturday.

Washington Post: Dick Martin, the zany half of the comedy team whose “Rowan and Martin’s Laugh-In” took television by storm in the 1960s, making stars of Goldie Hawn and Lily Tomlin and creating such national catch-phrases as “Sock it to me!” has died. He was 86.
