    #blackTwitter is merciless on any and everything and always comedy. There have been some great tweets from #blackTwitter . It is not for the easily offended.

    Hasn't Bill come out and called this one of his biggest regrets of his presidency?

    He has not come out and said the same about the Lewinsky affair.

    Has he? I can't say I'd believe him. He's too shrewd and smart to not have known the ramifications of his decisions. Plus we all know he doesn't regret side chicks.

    I'm no Bernie fan but in his defense he is from the Northeast and not the south. What was he doing in the 60's?

    I wouldn't think marching in the 60s or not marching would be a disqualifer for someone.

    Now being a socialist .......

    The "black vote" talk always gives me a chuckle. It reminds me of the the Chappelle racial draft skit, where the black delegates drafted Tiger Woods, finalizing his blackness.

    Black and youth vote will return to pre Obama levels which is troubling for the Democrats.

    Interesting read for sure. Question though, does it seem like this article has stereotyped what would be known as the "black voter" It seems what Bill did had an impact on many different types of folks.
    I'm not that educated in politics to be quite honest. Typically vote republican so don't totally know the nuances of how the parties grab voters. I do think the democrats do a great job are targeting smaller groups to convince them versus the republicans just speak to the masses?

    Saw an article on Breitbart that all 6 of Hillary's top staff are white men. Not sure how that compares to other candidates, probably the same. However, that seems contrary to her message of empowering women and minorities.

    That's one of my top 10 favorite Chappelle Show skits.

    "The Black Delegation requests Eminem".

    "Now wait just a damn minute, Rondell. The White Delegation keeps Eminem and you can have OJ back."




    I gotta go watch it now.

    Kerry and Gore both won more than 90 percent of the black vote, according to Gallup. I agree that securing the youth vote might be problematic for Mrs. Clinton. Having said that, whoever wins the GOP nomination likely will face significant fallout from the Trump cyclone, which is why it wouldn't surprise me if voter turnout, on a percentage basis, declines for both parties in '16 in comparison to '08 and '12.
