Why The Clintons Inject Race Into the Campaign

The Chicago Daily Observer has an idea:

"The more the conversation gets to be about race, the better the Clintons think they will do. It’s as simple as that.

"They want to nudge—even provoke—Barack Obama into becoming the “black” candidate rather than the healing, unity candidate. They want black supporters to raise their voices on his behalf—preferably the Al Sharpton types who will shrilly cry “racism” and thus exacerbate the divide.

"That’s why Billary changed the conversation in New Hampshire, risking some anger against them in the black communities—anger they know would be assuaged in a general election. Okay, let him carry South Carolina, as long as he is tagged with Afrocentrism."

Side note: Billary...awesome.

Hat Tip: Sully
