The persistent flirtation by Clinton operatives, spokesmen and allies with the race issue, as epitomized by Geraldine Ferraro's statements this week, are not coincidental, but reflect a determination to inject racial bias into the current election.

Knowing that she appeals to a downscale electorate, who are no strangers to racism, Hillary is trying to use the race card to win. Her other hope is likely to entice Obama into playing what he calls "the angry black man" role so as to turn voters off. It is a disgusting approach to the election and the Clintons deserve to be called on it.
