The numbers behind the black abandonment of the Clintons

Here's some empirical data on the migration of African-Americans from Hillary Clinton to Barack Obama.

This sort of confirms what I wrote in my post, Black Unlike Me, yesterday. Interesting latter half of the week. Race and the Clintons and, separately, the sudden interest in the crazy white preacher friends of John Mcain, two issues in the campaign that I have been writing about for months, just emerged in the slightly-off-mainstream culture and politics sites, like Salon, and mainstream media like the New York Times as the real deal.

Keep watching. Leaders lead only if followers let them.
