Obama and Clinton racially..

I do think that race matters somewhat in this race but it isn't the preeminent issue that some media outlets will have you believe. It's kind of the low-hanging fruit of this campaign.

Senator Obama has won states with very few blacks. Senator Obama has won states with lots of blacks. I think Ohio is just kind of backwards and they are buying into the Hillary Kool-Aid...but that's changing.

This is why I like you, Christine.

I thought it was just me that felt that way. Other states with more blacks and fewer blacks are tending towards Barack Obama.

The comment I made while liveblogging was that our voting public is painfully uninformed and they aren't the most astute voters out there. For God's sake, Ohio voted for Issue 1!

Yes, I am even leary of the Democrats in Ohio...
