Old White People Like Me
Yesterday, Hilary Clinton trounced Barack Obama winning the WestVirginia primary by gaining 67% of the vote to Obama’s 22%. The 45%margin of victory inspired the nearly bankrupt Clinton campaign, andled Hilary to exclaim that she wants the win to send a message.
Which only leads me to ask the question, what message is she trying to send?
Nationally, there are over 50 million registered democrats and yetonly 400 thousand people actually voted in the West Virginia primary.And West Virginia isn’t just a predominantly white state, it’s an allwhite state with only 3% of the population being African American. Itis also the state with the second oldest population in the country,Florida being the first. Not surprisingly another state Hilary cleanedup in.
Clinton faces nearly insurmountable odds. She’s behind in thepopular vote, the delegate count, her campaign is broke, and despitethe calls for her to to drop out, she presses on convinced that she’llbe able to sway the 300 undecided super delegates to support her.
And in our liberal, democratic society, where all men are createdequal, what better argument is there then “Old White People Like Me.”
