Literally EVERY historical and statistical indicator is a glaring neon sign of how ****ed up this was... yet these guys are defending it like nothing I've ever seen before.
Clinton got 82% first run, 84% second run, and Gore got 90% in 2000. So from Gore to Obama its not that big of a difference.
In 88 Dukakis got 90% black vote.
In 96 Perot got 8.6% of the black vote.
Food for thought.
