Clyburn: Okay, So Could Hillary Get The Black Vote?
This juxtaposition definitely exposes how flimsy Clinton’s racial argument is.
“Well, I don’t think that carries any more weight than anyone who will argue that the fact that she only got 8 percent of the African-American vote in North Carolina indicates that she cannot get African-American votes in the general election.”
Agreed. And I think it’s telling that Obama hasn’t brought that point up. What’s more, Clyburn has credibility because he’s a neutral party in all of this this, having endorsed neither candidate.
Additionally, a recent Gallup story puts the lie to Obama’s supposed “white” problem.
