Fox News is now reporting that Samantha Power has resigned her position with the Obama Campaign after the Clinton Cabal called for Obama to fire her.

Power issued a statement Friday in which she admitted the comments but said she “deeply regretted them.”
“It is wrong for anyone to pursue this campaign in such negative and personal terms,” she said in the statement. “I apologize to Senator Clinton and to Senator Obama, who has made very clear that these kinds of expressions should have no place in American politics.”
Obama’s spokesman Bill Burton said the remarks were not in keeping with the senator’s views.
“Senator Obama decries such characterizations which have no place in this campaign,” Burton said.
Samantha Power f***ed up big time in this GAFFE. Flap remains skeptical that she remains associated with the Obama campaign in any way.
These type of characterizations do not play well with voters nor the Super Delegates who will determine the nominee.
