And how about these two coming endorsements: Toni Morrison, Nobel prize-winning author whose "first black president" label for Bill Clinton has been thrown around for weeks. And Kansas Gov. Kathleen Sebelius, a rising star in the Democratic Party who gives Obama even more red-state love.
Last week Obama was the loser in Nevada, falling prey to a divide-and-conquer strategy to use race to marginalize him with a "black" win in South Carolina. Now he is the landslide winner there and the new darling of the non-Clinton Democratic Party establishment.
