This Election Campaign is not about Race (or is it?)

The Hilary Clinton Campaign have repeatedly reminded America about Obama's blackness (I think the fear is that Americans being fickle could forget?). The leaked pictures of Obama in Kenyan robes to the drudge report, Obama's features being darkened in a Clinton ad and Orlando Patterson, a professor of sociology at Harvard argues that the Clinton "3am in the White House" advert has racial under-tones. Now probably the most unlikely, the claim from Geraldine Ferraro of the Hilary Clinton Campaign that Obama wouldn't be leading the democratic nomiation if he were white. I don't even know where to start with this one.  

I particularly like the parody below about the issue.




Obama's response

Race will eventually play a role - When the Clinton's get desperate they really go to town.

Race is most definately playing a role in the campaign, if Obama were to be a white male, the media bias and hype wouldnt be as much.. Obama stands out as an individual and he is black, a breath of fresh air to the presidential campaign, he's incomparable to Jess Jackson.. Hence, the media hype and craziness.... His race is definately giving him an edge!

i agree with ababoy - the Clintons are hardened to political smear and it is all they know since the RNC's all out war against them in the 90s following the Lewinsky debacle. I feel bad for the Obama campaign because they are trying to keep it positive but it seems like you can only fight fire with fire. Unfortuntately in this fire fight the real issues are tossed in the flames.
