Wow. Courtesy of TPM. I love how the white vote is the base of the party, when a Democratic presidential candidate hasn't carried the white vote--literally--in decades. It may be that we need the white vote to win, but it isn't the "base." I watch this video and understand why these guys are fighting so hard. Think about. What place will a guy like this have in an Obama campaign?
The US is particularly miserable at putting aside money for the future. Should we blame our paychecks or our psychology?
