Black Politics in O8' Hot - Hillary Not

If your a black politician in a super Tuesday state you can almost pick a post in government you would like to have if your candidate call on you. Black political endorsements are going to the highest bidder for Hillary and John. As the Seattle and New York Times report:

Before the Iowa caucus returns were in Thursday, the phones started ringng in the home of Fletcher Smith Jr., a black state legislator from Greenville, S.C.

In New York, the Rev. Al Sharpton, the civil-rights activist, said he was called all Thursday night by "either the candidate themselves or someone high up in the top three campaigns" suggesting he make up his mind.

Obama's 8-point victory margin in overwhelmingly white Iowa changed the landscape of the presidential campaign, whittling away at doubts that a biracial African-American candidate could be elected. More HERE
