Bill's Advance Spin

In a simple phrase: "Jesse Jackson won South Carolina twice". Listen to it yourself. I'm not making that up.

I don't think there can be any doubt about the Clintons' racial strategy now. The people of South Carolina just rejected that logic by voting for Obama - white and black, male and female - in a diverse coalition in the face of a deliberate attempt at racial polarization. They threw the Clintons' logic back in their faces. Kudos to Josh for noticing this. It's revealing, and depressing.
