The Clintons' Ghettoizing of Barack

In my opinion, Patrick Buchanan is almost always more wrong than right. But here's one in which he's dead right: The Clintons are succeeding in Ghettoizing Barack. Buchanan knows racial politics--and he's watching it being used by the Clintons against Barack.

In three weeks, Barack has been ghettoized. The crossover candidate, the great liberal hope, has become a Jesse Jackson, who is ceded the black vote and a few states, then given a speaking role at the convention, as the party moves on to the serious business of electing a president.
It's despicable--and it's working for the Clintons!

It's a primary reason why decent Americans everywhere--Independents, Democrats and Republicans--must vote against this type of politics in the remaining primaries as well as in the general election.
