Hillary Plays Race Card Again

How the hell do the Clintons think they are helping themselves by saying that Barack Obama only won certain states because he is black? Hillary Clinton plays the race card to downplay her defeat in Louisiana.

She told reporters who had gathered to watch her tour a General Motors plant here that "everybody knew, you all knew, what the likely outcome of these recent contests were."

"These are caucus states by and large, or in the case of Louisiana, you know, a very strong and very proud African-American electorate, which I totally respect and understand."

Clinton is showing signs that she is going to lose. She is correct that Obama is stronger in caucuses. A Kevin Drum post outlines how the Obama activists are destroying Hillary's campaign in caucas states. The caucases are confusing and requires the Obama people to get together and say "Yea." People are less likely to mobilize for Hillary.

Hillary firing campaign manager Patti Solis Doyle is a sign of trouble. Major shake-ups at this stage of the race are because the campaign is losing. Obama won all the weekend races. Hillary and Obama now go into Virginia, Maryland and the District of Columbia. This is must win time for Hillary.
