Obama vs. McCain

They are the winners, that is, of their respective party primaries in South Carolina. Obama’s crushing of Hilarity today was based on the SC Dem Party’s being fifty percent black, but he also he got a quarter of the white vote. I agree with David Freddoso at National Review: I don’t see how any liberal could want the Clintons back in power. They aren’t liberals, for one thing. They’re mainly in it for themselves, as he has readily proved this month. Neither candidate offers the Democrats much of a chance in the fall–the MSM’s relentless cheerleading to the contrary notwithstanding–but it seems to me that the (so far) scandal-free Obama would have the best chance of the two. Or three, if you acknowledge the obvious, that the Clintons are in it together.
