Power, a Pulitzer-Prize winning author known for her advocacy of humanitarian intervention, made the remarks in an interview London with The Scotsman.
In a statement yesterday, Power said that she was resigning her role with "deep regret."
“Last Monday, I made inexcusable remarks that are at marked variance from my oft-stated admiration for Senator Clinton and from the spirit, tenor, and purpose of the Obama campaign," Power said. "And I extend my deepest apologies to Senator Clinton, Senator Obama, and the remarkable team I have worked with over these long 14 months.”
Power has been a member of Obama’s foreign policy kitchen cabinet since he was elected to the Senate in 2004. Before taking on the role of advising his campaign, Power worked for a year in his Senate office.
