Bill Clinton says Obama won S.C. just because he's black.

Ok, that isn't exactly what he said:

Said Bill Clinton today in Columbia, SC: "Jesse Jackson won South Carolina in '84 and '88. Jackson ran a good campaign. And Obama ran a good campaign here."

That is quite the implication, isn't it? "All blacks win here, so what?" is sorta the feeling.

It's strange how filled with pleasure I was at hearing Obama won South Carolina. Is it possible to beat Hillary? Can the Democrats do the right thing and go against the status quo? Can they nominate someone other than a self involved manipulating political machine? Can they??
