Clinton’s Power View

26 05 2008

Andrew Sullivan takes Krugman on for his cluelessness on Hillary’s RFK remark, and quickly goes “meta” – that is, illustrating powerfully how he believes Hillary Clinton’s mind works on minority relations:

“The model etched in Clinton’s head – and it is part and parcel of her entire worldview with respect to minorities – is: you vote for us, we’ll take care of you. And “we” is always white and straight and connected. Obama represents an end to those categories, which is why Clinton gets her strongest support from those most resistant to any diminution in established (i.e. white) power.”

Whoa.
