BOILING THE CONTEST DOWN TO ITS BASICS:

A Vote of Allegiance?: In the Obama-Clinton Battle, Race & Gender Pose Two Great Divides for Black Women (DeNeen L. Brown, 3/24/08, Washington Post)

The "isms" have once again been pitted against each other. Sexism or racism -- which ism is deepest? All things being equal, should a woman or a black man be lifted to the presidency? Which "first" is the imperative first?

The problem for the Democrats is that anyone who doesn't see the presidency as a spoil isn't going to be much interested in this battle of PC guilts.
