Lost at the Start

Interesting article at Salon this morning that indicates that once again, we were right all along: Hillary lost at the beginning.

By using her "inevitability" as her main strength, and by playing to the mainstream Dems' old-school tendency to take the black vote for granted, she lost valuable votes that could have been making the difference for her now.

It's important to note that Obama was never inevitable, not even amongst black voters. Black voters would certainly never vote for an obvious puppet or token (look at the various Thug attempts to put forward a Black candidate), but they (we) only came aboard as became clear that his campaign was a legitimate concern in its own right.
