matthew: that's kind of the point. i doubt she'll do anything if she gets into the general election either, because those folks aren't going to vote for mccain. it's just really gross that no one is talking about how she got only 8% of hte black vote in pennsylvania, but media (not this particular piece, but generally) seems to focus on the white people obama 'needs' to win over.

I don't think Hillary is going to try to "woo that demographic" as you say unless she is up for the General Election. I think it is fair to say that she doesn't stand a chance to win it in the Primary Season.

how are black people voting? because hilary clinton got almost none of the black vote in pennsylvania and i for one would like to know what she's doing to woo that demographic.
