Like a Black Candidate

In his new column, Robert Novak explains what we talked about on my radio show yesterday, that Barack made himself into a black candidate with his speech on Tuesday. Novak reports that the Democratic masterminds are now feeling trapped - if they need to abandon Obama and go with Hillary, how can they, given that he is the black candidate and they are dependent on the black vote? So, Dems lose if they nominate Obama because he's made himself into someone who makes white voters uncomfortable and they lose if Hillary is selected because they are abandoned by blacks and new voters who stay home.

Here's Novak.
