78. I'm sure the sentiment is only going to grow...
the black talk radio shows will have plenty to talk about this week from some of the comments made this weekend.

Edwards is my fave, I would be quite happy with Obama and I would begrudgingly vote for Clinton. Nevertheless, I've already heard some say that they are through with Senator Clinton and that if she gets the nom, they are going to stay home come November.
