Harlem Redux: Obama v. The Clinton Machine

Obama also rebuffed Clinton's argument that he would melt in the face of Republican attacks.
"First of all, I've had to go up against the Clinton machine. And it's not as if they're playing tiddlywinks, right?" he said. "So we've been battle-tested during the course of this primary." (AFP)

And speaking of going up against the Clinton machine, Black Voices asks: Did the New York City election officials pulled a jack move on Sen. Barack Obama on the night of the Super Tuesday New York State Primary? The New York Times found that in 80 of NYC's 6,106 districts, Obama did not get a single vote.

Or read what Christopher K. Leavitt says on a Gather.com article OBAMA "Robbed" In NYS Primary: Recount May Change Delegate Count... commenting on the New York Post's article saying that Brooklyn City Councilman Charles Barron called the understated figures "outrageous. I think this is an all-out effort to stop a campaign that is about to make history and render America's first black president," he said. "We need some kind of independent or federal agency to investigate this." ....

And our new friends at ToTheCenter.com picked up the Wall Street Journal's comments on the story....

And they wonder why people are leaving the parties and becoming independents!!!
