Black Leaders Beginning to Move to Obama

    The New York Times today highlights a trend that we noted over a month ago: Black support is beginning to drift from Hillary Clinton to Barack Obama, even in her home state of New York.
    This is only the beginning of a trend that will see Obama overwhelmingly carry the black vote in the Democratic primaries. As noted in an earlier column, the conventional wisdom early on that Obama might not do well among black voters because, among other things, he did not share the African-American “slavery heritage," was, well, not very informed and way off the mark. As we noted then, there is an understandable pride among voters whenever “one of their own” seeks the nation’s highest office and black voters are not going to be an exception to the rule.
    With her lead now falling in most polls, things are not going particularly well for the Clinton campaign.
