New Hampshire Democrats Do Not Want A Black President

That is my take on the New Hampshire primary. Let me see if I can explain it a little better... traditional democratic voters recognized that if Obama won the New Hampshire primary, there was a good chance he would become president.

That was not the case in Iowa. Obama winning Iowa just stirred up the race and sent a message to the Clinton camp that she should not take the nomination for granted. An Obama win in Iowa and a win in New Hampshire, now that would have had some serious consequences.

So the question is why were the polls so wrong? The answer is do you cheat on your taxes? Do you watch porn? Are you a bad driver? Almost everyone will answer no, no and no. But what people say and what they do... especially in the privacy of the voting booth...

Seattle is a lot like New Hampshire, mostly white, mostly liberal. I have lived in Seattle all of my life, I know that what liberals tell you about diversity and inclusiveness and how they act when the rubber meets the road is often in contradiction.

Feel free to disagree but that is how I see it.
