The Wright issue pushes electability down for BOTH candidates

It will have a hit on the white vote for Obama. But should Obama ultimately lose the nomination because of this, Hillary will have to kiss huge chunks of the black vote goodbye. Can Gore still be drafted?

3. If Hillary wins the nomination,
she will not necessarily lose a big chunk of the black vote. It all depends on who the VP on her ticket is AND on what role Obama plays.

If Obama wins the nomination, most of Hillary's supporters will vote for him.

McCain will be a formidable candidate.

8. If Hillary wins BECAUSE OF WRIGHT

In other words, if Obama is pushed out because he's black and attends a black church, then many many blacks will never vote for him. Anyone who thinks otherwise is incredibly naive.

9. I really don't understand DU logic
Are you saying that Hillary is responsible for Wright?!!!!!

Are you saying that African Americans should support the Repubs who did and do everything they can to hurt African American rights?!!!!!

10. Hillery is a DINO. Why should Obama defer to a DINO?
We need some Liberal thinking to get us out of this mess.
