That would mean the Democrats lose just about all of their support from blacks unless they can make it look like those evil Republicans did it.
Oh, she won’t release it herself. She’ll leak it to Fox News, I imagine.
Problem is, it will only really hurt the Democrat Party with blacks if they fail to nominate Obama. That’s going to be bad for them no matter how it comes about.
That’s why, even if Hillary does take it to the convention, there’s no way she’s going to win in the end. The super-delegates aren’t about to commit Party suicide for her sake. I don’t think that will stop her from trying, though.
That makes no sense at all. Why would the Dems make Hillary the nominee because of something the Reps released? Wouldn't the Dems resist having the Reps select their nominee?
In any event, the Dems are stuck with Obama. There is no way that the Dems can throw Obama under the bus at this stage no matter what his wife might say on the tape, if it exists. Blacks are their most loyal constituency. "Stealing" the nomination from the black guy will have far reaching consequences not only for this election but for many more to come. The Dems want to be the home party for all minorities who will be the majority by 2050. Far better to lose this election than jeopardze their future prospects.
For now, the Dems are between a Barack and a hard place.
