86. Yup...
He got to where he is today DESPITE being black...not BECAUSE he's black. Today people (like Mrs. Edwards) may rightfully say he's getting more attention because he's black, but so what? He deserves it for being black his entire life and making such a success out of himself. He was the first A.A. President of the Harvard Law Review. And he's had to fight discrimination most of his life, too. It's not like he got where he was and then suddenly turned black.

Your girl has faught the RW attacks, yes, but they were mostly about her husband (unless you can name other attacks that were soley on her). My point is even though she was attacked by the RW the Dems. were always strongly behind her and Bill. So if she became our nominee, she'd have to go through even MORE of the same BS. For example, the other week, RW radio hack Melanie Morgan said on Hardball that "Hillary's wife Bill is dating again..." Nice of her to call Bill "Hillary's wife," but what if Bill IS caught cheating again? Won't it be a distraction to say the least?

She may be a good fighter, but how many people want to go through all that again?
