180. Did everyone forget that Obama's mother is WHITE
Why does his race have to be an issue. He is the product of both white and black. Did that slip the Clinton's mind? No. They wanted to paint this in terms of race to appeal to people who would vote for them if they knew blacks would vote overwhelmingly for Obama because he's black. She would get majority of the women's vote and the white vote. That's why the Clintons injected race. They wanted this to be an issue. Inject it anyway you can to win. Iowa and South Carolina and in large part Nevada rejected this. You see Edwards didn't inject race as a dividing line. Only the Clintons could as only they know how.
