  •  Michigan Kind of Scared Me.... (0+ / 0-)

    ...in that Hillary was the only candidate on the ballot and still came in second place to "Uncommitted" among black voters.  I'm not convinced there won't be some lasting consequences to the ridiculous racial dustup in the general election in the same way that many McCain loyalists refused to vote for Bush after the 2000 Bush campaign smear.

      ...and not possibly a positive on Obama?  Why do people see her support among African Americans behind Obama's and imply it's something wrong with her, as if there are tons of positive reasons for African-Americans to support Obama?

      •  It's Potentially a Negative For Both.... (0+ / 0-)

        ...with different demographics of Democratic voters.  My point was related to Michigan blacks who voted "uncommitted" over Clinton.  Isn't that a troubling sign?

        •  Only If You're Incapable of Imagining... (0+ / 0-)

          ...that they recognized that it was a way to support Obama and/or Edwards.

          But you "concern" is noted.

          •  Hilarious How Quickly Civility Is Discarded..... (0+ / 0-)

            ....with so many around here.  I can almost visualize your purple-faced rage towards me as you typed this last snarky response to a legitimate question about whether Obama's supporters, particularly blacks, can be expected to rally around her if she gets the nomination.

        •  How is that a troubling sign, at all? (0+ / 0-)

          The voted for uncommitted because they like Obama!  What a shock!  African-Americans voted overwelmingly for John Kerry who doesn't have nearly the history of commitment to the black community that Hillary and Bill Clinton have.  This is all a bunch of garbage stirred up by the media because they like conflict.  If Hillary gets our nomination she will get 90% of the black vote and there will be heavy turnout.  The same was true for Kerry and Gore and Bill.  Black people are pragmatic voters.  They won't throw the election to McCain.

          Inhofe is a wacko with a 46% approval rating: He's vulnerable.
