The Race (and sex) Card

In a brilliant article in the "Boston Globe", Geraldine Ferraro describes the experience so many Democratic voters are having.

"Perhaps it's because neither the Barack Obama campaign nor the media seem to understand what is at the heart of the anger on the part of women who feel that Hillary Clinton was treated unfairly because she is a woman or what is fueling the concern of Reagan Democrats for whom sexism isn't an issue, but reverse racism is."

She'll no doubt get savaged for it, but its the truth, and the effects of this will continue to influence the outcome of this campaign through November.
