Clinton racism

The Daily Dish | By Andrew Sullivan: "One remarkable aspect of this race that I certainly didn't expect but that the Clintons must be relishing: they may be becoming the vehicle for white racial resentment! When you recall how many of these voters felt about the Clintons in the 1990s, you really need a double take. But if the Clintons bring down the first serious black candidate for the presidency, they could ride a wave of redneck gratitude toward a re-branding in American politics. The Clintons would have no qualms about this - and obviously don't. What the Clintons have to be in order to keep power, they will manage to be."
