President Obama early this afternoon spoke to Shirley Sherrod on the phone, expressing regret to the former Agriculture Department official whose forced resignation has caused the administration a great deal of embarrassment.
Said the White House statement: “The President told Ms. Sherrod that this misfortune can present an opportunity for her to continue her hard work on behalf of those in need, and he hopes that she will do so.”
White House officials say that suggestion was more along the lines of ‘this situation may present an opportunity to continue helping people if you’re interested,” and not about Vilsack’s specific job offer.
