Obama Beckons Black Clinton Supporters

Mr. Obama's momentum courts the ethnic pride of many black Americans - which puts Clinton supporters in a precarious position as they decide who to support moving forward. Where will the prominent Black leaders end up? How long will the vacillating last? Clinton 1 enjoyed great support from the Black and Hispanic population and Clinton 2 also looks to connect to this voter, but will the fence riders fall to her side of the playground? Far from over, this will take months to shake out, but we'll be watching closely. Dare I say it, for fear of Imus-like reprisal, in the coming months black voters will be doing a lot of soul searching. NYTimes.com
