THE PLANK MAY 7, 2008
We'll see what happens tomorrow, but this may indeed become a big story (from a USA Today interview):
Hillary Rodham Clinton vowed Wednesday to
continue her quest for the Democratic nomination, arguing she would be
the stronger nominee because she appeals to a wider coalition of voters
— including whites who have not supported Barack Obama in recent
"I have a much broader base to build a winning
coalition on," she said in an interview with USA TODAY. As evidence,
Clinton cited an Associated Press article "that found how Sen. Obama's
support among working, hard-working Americans, white Americans, is
weakening again, and how whites in both states who had not completed
college were supporting me."
"There's a pattern emerging here," she said. [Italics Mine]
The article describess the "remarks about race" as "blunt." Regardless, this does not seem to be a "unifying" statement.
