Blacks express ambivalence about Kerry
This is very bad news for Kerry. If he cannot energize the black vote, if he cannot motivate record numbers of blacks to get to the polls, then stick a fork in him, he's done.
Remember, Al Gore DID energize the black vote. He was Clinton's VP, which carried some weight politically. He sensationalized the James Byrd and condemned Bush for vetoing Hate Crime legislation in Texas (conveniently ignoring the fact the perps got the death penalty -- did he want George to , too?), and Gore still lost in several key states.
Kerry's people should be worrying about this.
