Gallup only confirms the obvious
Much angst in the liberal blogosphere today over a new Gallup poll finding that 28% of Hillary backers claim they would vote for McCain in November if Obama is nominated. Wow, what a shocker. If I have said it once, I have said it a dozen times: Racism still exists, folks, and there are plenty of people still not ready to vote for a black president (and they felt that way before the Rev. Wright brouhaha). Get used to it. I'm no Ed Rendell fan, but he has been crucified with simply stating the obvious: that some whites in Pennsylvania will not vote for an African-American. Too true. And some men -- and women -- won't vote for a woman.
