Politics - African American: Will Hillary Appoint Thurbert Baker as her U.S. Attorney General?

Well, Well, Attorney General Thurbert Baker and Labor Commissioner Michael Thurmond, the state's only two black statewide elected officials, are supporting Clinton.

You remember
Attorney General Thurbert Baker the guy who refused to let Genarlow Wilson Free.

Let's do a rewind, the
young man who was sentenced to ten years in prison for a crime of (having oral sex) now considered a misdemeanor with a much lighter sentence, and was not freed by Attorney General Thurbert Baker. Genarlow Wilson had to be freed by The Georgia Supreme Court. See the post by Exodus Mentality and What About Our Daughters.

One would hope that Hillary Clinton would not even be thinking about nominating him for Attorney General or head of it's Civil Rights Division. But hey, even
staunch Hillary supporters may think appointing this guy to be Attorney General as bad news.

But why should this AAPP be concerned Barack Obama is probably going to win the nomination. If he does not Black folks should be concerned who Hillary would appoint in this and other key positions.

U.S. Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton received another boost from a prominent black leader on Wednesday as the head of the National Black Caucus of State Legislators threw his support behind her presidential campaign.

Georgia state Rep. Calvin Smyre said Clinton has "the strength and experience" to bring about needed change.

"Hillary is ready to lead this country on her first day in the White House and her agenda to expand economic and educational opportunities for all Americans will be a welcome change from the last seven years of presidential neglect," Smyre said in a statement.

Clinton is locked in a battle for the black vote with Sen. Barack Obama, who is trying to become the nation's first black president. That fight is heated in Georgia where blacks have made up nearly half the vote in the state's recent Democratic primaries. Georgia's presidential primary is Feb. More HERE
