Clinton's only articulating what has been the essence of bourgeois
electoral politics since the process began.  Identity politics and
ethnic appeals are how most politicians have won elections, since the
alternative would be actually presenting policy proposals and ideas.

As far as that goes, Obama's played the same game of pandering to
white racism by disassocaited from Rev. Wright.

To say that that the bourgois political system is dominated by white
racism is like saying that checkers are round and the board is square.
 That's just the game.
