Default Re: Aw, Nuts

One black leader (sorry, can't remember who) who was briefly interviewed at the NAACP conference commented that some in his group have legitimate concerns about an Obama presidency because others might then say, "Okay, you got what you want, now be quiet". He implied that they are well aware that Obama's hands might actually be tied in significantly assisting them once he is ensconced because he would be vulnerable to the showing favoritism charge. I think that might be at the root of Jackson's response to O's lecture and Rev. Wright threat to "go after you once you're there".

In the tradition of Nixon Goes to China, Reagan Stops the Cold War, Clinton passes Welfare Reform, someone else - even a John McCain who initially fought the MLK national holiday in Arizona - might be more able to offer them a hand. In fact, in an effort to bring the country together, a President McCain might wish to offer them a significant olive branch in the name of harmony and reconciliation.
