Clinton’s Loss is…Clinton’s Gain

As usual, Dick Morris exaggerates. But he’s on the mark about the Clintons’ race-baiting strategy.

Obama has done everything he possibly could to keep race out of this election. And the Clintons attracted national scorn when they tried to bring it back in by attempting to minimize the role Martin Luther King Jr. played in the civil rights movement. But here they have a way of appearing to seek the black vote, losing it, and getting their white backlash, all without any fingerprints showing. The more President Clinton begs black voters to back his wife, and the more they spurn her, the more the election becomes about race — and Obama ultimately loses.

Bill Clinton famously referred to himself as “the first black-president.” Now he’s exploiting race to get himself – oh yeah, and his wife too – back into the nation’s highest office. What kind of neurosis is causing Democrats to want to return this scandel-ridden duo back into the White House? Have they so quickly forgotten the naked interns in the Oval Office closet, the money scandals, and the general shame the Clintons brought on us all?
