Wow, so we have to spell out Hussein, like some slur and compare our persumptive candidate with the inept Kerry campaign.
The ability of the current HILLARY Clinton campaign to win a general election is not at all tied to the previous successed of the BILL Clinton campaign. They have two TOTALLY different campaign staffs that have the ultimate say in how a campaign will react to certain events.
I guess--and the whole point of my diary--was that there isn't much relevence to polls this far out. Frankly, what does it matter that she's been ahead in the polls for quite some time? We don't know what the field will look like a month from now, not even in November.
Of course no one cared about women (I assume you mean made sexist attacks) when Bill Clinton was running... he's not a woman...
I don't get what you're saying with that.
And, lastly, stop me if I'm reading too much into this, but "Hussein" Obama, really?
I'd agree that it can come across as patronizing, but I would say that this isn't a problem inherent in guilt, but in how that guilt expresses itself. Guilt is a feeling, and feelings can't be patronizing--actions are patronizing.
Second of all, I agree that race shouldn't be a determinative factor in choosing a president. However, I don't think there's anything wrong with being more excited about the prospect that we might have a black president.
