Hillary Supporter Jim Clyburn Raised 'Great Concern' re:Clintons & Black Voters



The irony is that Congressman Jim Clyburn was a Hillary supporter, and was as surprised as anyone she was unable to wrap up the election by February '08 as he states, so in retrospect his opinions do really matter about this issue of sabotaging a fellow Democratic candidate in the General Election. The Michigan Primary is so important. I hope people vote wisely.

And Keith was right. It was a politically brave thing for Clyburn to do at the time -- to stand up to the Clintons.

The more you understand about Hillary, the more you appreciate her.

from the article:

Black leaders widely criticized Mr. Clinton after he equated the eventual victory of Mr. Obama in the South Carolina primary in January to that of the Rev. Jesse Jackson in the 1988 caucus, a parallel that many took as an effort to diminish Mr. Obama’s success in the campaign.

In a radio interview in Philadelphia on Monday, Mr. Clinton defended his remarks and said the Obama campaign had “played the race card on me” <snip>

Mr. Clyburn added that there appeared to be an almost unanimous view among African-Americans that Mr. and Mrs. Clinton were committed to doing everything they possibly could to damage Mr. Obama to a point that he could never win in the general election.
