BREITBART reported Two key black political leaders in South Carolina who backed John Edwards in 2004 said Tuesday they are supporting Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton's bid for the Democratic presidential nomination. State Sens. Robert Ford and Darrell Jackson told The Associated Press they believe Clinton is the only Democrat who can win the presidency.
She probably is the only one that can get the Democratic Nomination, but the question is will she have to move so far to the left to get it that she can't pretend to be a centrist to get elected.Both said they had been courted by Illinois Sen. Barack Obama; Ford said Obama winning the primary would drag down the rest of the party. "Then everybody else on the ballot is doomed," Ford said. "Every Democratic candidate running on that ticket would lose because he's black and he's at the top of the ticket _ we'd lose the House, the Senate and the governors and everything."
You give too much credit to the top of the ticket. Dems are very likely to do well in 2008. The problem is that whoever they elect as President is going to be too weak on the Islamoterrorist threat, and they will attack several times once the new President takes over, and it is the revolt against that which will cause you to lose the House, Senate, and governors in 2010."I'm a gambling man. I love Obama," Ford said. "But I'm not going to kill myself."
Having someone on the slate is not going to be what kills you. It is the Islamoterrorists that threaten that, and if they get into a position to impose Sharia law, that will destroy most of the supporters of the Democratic party.
