Thread Name: BS: Hillary is in the race for President
Subject: RE: BS: Hillary is in the race for President
Obama "will win hands down". That would be fine. But, as I said, look what happened to Harold Ford. And that was a border state (Civil War). There's a lot of the South. And racists elsewhere also. Most of whom, you can bet, lie to pollsters.   And when asked about it afterwards will always have a non-race-based flimsy excuse. And if Obama were to get the nomination, any speck of dirt will be seized upon----and magnified a million times. ( That's why it's great news that the drug business is already on the table--- there can be no surprise there.)

So the time to look for dirt is right now--when Obama is considered the second coming of JFK. So there will be no chance for a Swift Boaters for Character Assassination-style approach later.

Then, if he makes it through that inquisition, it will be time to psychoanalyze the white US public--will they, including in the South, pull the lever for a black man for president?

And even if every Mudcatter says yes, that is by no means a cross-section of US society.
