It's Okay, He Was Our First Black President

Oh, Bill.

On Saturday, as Sen. Barack Obama was sweeping up the South Carolina primary, former Pres. Bill Clinton was busy downplaying the significance of Obama's impending win, casting it as a function of the state's demographics and the Illinois senator's heavy African American support. "Jesse Jackson won South Carolina in '84 and '88," Clinton said at a rally in Columbia. "Jackson ran a good campaign. And Obama ran a good campaign here."

"Eh, it's just the black people. What can you do?"

Really, I don't know what to say here. Maybe I'm reading more into it than I should, but it seems like the Clinton campaign has just decided to officially write off African-Americans as people with their own opinions and choices. Sheesh.
