Man I wish my dad was famous.
For those looking for a reason to not vote for Barack Obama here’s a big one. If elected, there’s a good chance that Jesse Jackson Jr could replace Obama in the Senate.
That would be the same race baiting Jesse Jackson Jr who accomplished the rare double whammy when he managed to play the race card AND the Hurricane Katrina card, not once but TWICE in less than two minutes.
…there were tears that melted the Granite State. And those are tears that Mrs. Clinton cried on that day, clearly moved voters. She somehow connected with those voters.
But those tears also have to be analyzed. They have to be looked at very, very carefully in light of Katrina, in light of other things that Mrs. Clinton did not cry for, particularly as we head to South Carolina where 45% of African-Americans who participate in the Democratic contest, and they see real hope in Barack Obama.
We saw something very clever in the last week of this campaign coming out of Iowa, going into New Hampshire, we saw a sensitivity factor. Something that Mrs. Clinton has not been able to do with voters that she tried in New Hampshire.
Not in response to voters — not in response to Katrina, not in response to other issues that have devastated the American people, the war in Iraq, we saw tears in response to her appearance. So her appearance brought her to tears, but not hurricane Katrina.
