    As I look back on what went wrong with the Clinton campaign I think you can point to a single incident that spelled her demise- the interviw that Bill Clinton gave that compared Obama campaign to Jesse Jackson campaign. What appreared to be race baiting infuriated a wide base of people in South Carolina including both whites and blacks.

    Enitre incident gave Obama momentun and Hillary never recovered.

    I agree. And it's a topic McCain should stay far, far away from.

    Remains to be seen if GOP strategists are smart enough to avoid the issue.

    I would be shocked if they raised the topic. Besides The Clintons have already gotten the message out that Obama is black.

    After New Hampshire Hillary went into South Carolina with a lot of momentum. Introducing Race had the affect of slamming on the brakes to her campaign.

    He'll stay away from it.

    But there will be plenty of republican strategists who won't.

    I look forward to your next update in January, when you predict that Obama will clinch the Democratic nomination.

    Is this the republican slogan that they'll use down south?

    Because it will work.
