19. She announced her candidacy after Sharpton announced his.
Edited on Thu Jan-29-04 06:02 PM by AP
I suspect she only ran to make sure that Sharpton wasn't seen as the voice of black America.

Which is weird because CMB never talked about race, she crticized others who did, and she called critics who (very legitimately) raised issues with Dean's chat on race, "racists" (which is unbelievably unhelpful for people who want to take race seriously).

Furthermore, in a final shot at Sharpton I heard CMB's campaign manager give a wrap-up interview yesterday during which she really tried hard to smear Sharpton.

If I had to guess, I'd say they're all getting corporate money to make sure that race doesn't develop into a message about downward and outward wealth distribution.
