Description: (Memo to Bush family: little blond kids in suburbia are clearly being denied their constitutional right of photo opportunity!) Most white candidates, even Republicans, spend Sunday after Sunday diversifying their campaigns by preaching their hearts out in black churches, all claiming the closest of connections to the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King. (This, despite the fact that the media has spent a great deal of time suspiciously scrutinizing the minister of Obama's own church for being altogether too tied to black community concerns and therefore likely mired in diuggery, muggery, and racial essentialism.) In turn, black ministers across the land were initially quite cautious about their endorsement of Obama, apologetically tentative, explicitly worried not so much about his politics but that their endorsement would be perceived as "identity politics" and that their voices would have more power thrown behind a more "electable"-meaning white-candidate, even if that white candidate was a woman, with gendered "electability" issues of her own.\n And if people resent her political intervention, then we need to ask if they resent Donald Trump or Warren Buffett or Bill Gates or Michael Bloomberg-to say nothing of the average corporate lobby or oil company, whose influence dwarfs that of any individual actor.
