53. The odd thing is that NEITHER camp is really pushing this stuff
The Clintons (as opposed to stray supporters) are working overtime to bat this stuff down. It's not what they want.

The Obama campaign (as opposed to stray supporters) is doing very little to keep this stuff alive. It's not what they want.

Clyburn has back-peddled some, simply urging that everyone be careful in their comments. He doesn't want a race explosion either.

The only people that want this stuff are the Matt Drudges of the world.
