Obama vs. Clinton - In Black and White
When is the media going to stop dancing around the racism amongst voters in this campaign? All you have to do is compare the votes from white non-college graduates to black non-college graduates and you can see that it is not the economy that is the prime issue, rather, it is race. Two out of three white voters earning under $50,000/yr prefer Sen. Hilary Clinton, in most interviews shown on CNN they point to either a need for economic reform and Sen. Clinton's experience in that category. Will somebody please enlighten me on Clinton's so-called experience? Because, last I checked, Obama's experience is essentially the exact same as Clinton's, unless you count being the first lady as experience. Don't get me wrong, the first lady is very important, she serves as a diplomat oversees (often dodging enemy sniper fire as she de-boards the plane, ha) as well as serving as a key orchestrator for other charitable work both domestic and abroad, but the bottom line is she does not deal with legislation. She did nothing to stimulate the economy, her husband did, and though Bill is a part of the campaign, he is not her running mate. So please, spare me the scripted answers and simply admit to your hesitance to vote a half black man into office.
