I haven’t had anything to say about Hillary Clinton’s MLK day statement about Congress being run like a plantation because, frankly, I didn’t see much in it. Substantively, the import of the statement may well be true, and there’s nothing terribly noteworthy in a leading Democrat (especially one named Clinton) playing the race card before a black audience.
But Kathleen Parker has managed to come up with an interesting take on Hillary’s comment. She sees it as evidence that Hillary lacks what it takes to be “the first black female president.” As Parker puts it, “Watching Clinton’s soul-sister moment was like watching a whiffed high-five, embarrassing as watching middle-aged white guys playing air guitar. Stop it.”
