Again, why this double standards by media. Michelle obama is playing race card and saying African Americans will wake up and vote for Mr. Obama because he is one among them. Why does she or Obama get free pass from press when they make such silly statements?
"WASHINGTON--With polls showing African-Americans have yet to give overwhelming support to White House hopeful Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.), his wife Michelle said "black America will wake up and get it" in an interview running on MSNBC on Monday."
Infact Obama himself used race card to prove his electability point. asked by WP what red states he can win, and this was his answer.
As the interview drew to a close, Obama expressed great confidence in his ability to change the political environment -- and the political map in America. Asked what red states he could win, he named Virginia and added provocatively, "I think I can put Mississippi in play" because of the high percentage of African Americans in the state, despite the fact that it has been one of the most reliably Republican states in the nation."
the point is, if we contrast those interviews with what hillary can say. if she says, I think I will win in state X because of large amount of female voters in that state, what would typical response from media be?
