Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad will be at the UN next week, and several Jewish groups plan a protest rally in response. Hillary Clinton was supposed to be among them, but she has cancelled her planned appearance, and the Times‘ Caucus Blog says it was because Sarah Palin made last-minute arrangements to be there too. “This was never billed to us as a partisan political event,” said a Clinton spokesman. “Senator Clinton will therefore not be attending.”
Expect Palin to keep trying to appear with Clinton in order to wash the non-approved SNL version out of people’s heads.
