RUSH: Earlier in the program, ladies and gentlemen, I mentioned to you, and quite accurately so, you can take this to the bank, that the Clintons, Mrs. Clinton, in order to blunt the two-to-one shellacking she took in South Carolina, the majority of black voters voting for Obama — this is what they want, I mean I’m sure they didn’t want this kind of racial rift but they got it, caused it — but they gotta have a firewall now. They can’t take the chance that there will be lingering black, shall we say, animus and dislike for them. We have to find somebody to replace those votes, and that’s the Hispanic vote. Mrs. Clinton is going to make a beeline to the Hispanic vote, and she’s going to play the race card there. She’s going to pit these two minority groups against each other. She’s going to point out, in her own way, ‘Look how powerful those black voters are in South Carolina, look how powerful.’ And it’s supposed to scare the Hispanics into blocking up for the Clintons so as to blunt the loss of blacks voting for Obama.
Now, Obama’s got a plan to deal with this. Would you like to hear what it is? From the San Francisco Chronicle: ‘Sen. Barack Obama easily won the African American vote in South Carolina, but to woo California Latinos, where he is running 3-to-1 behind rival Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, he is taking a giant risk: spotlighting his support for the red-hot issue of granting driver’s licenses to illegal immigrants. … Obama’s intention is to draw distinctions between himself and Clinton on what are otherwise indistinguishable positions on immigration.’ So he’s going to come out full force in favor of driver’s licenses for illegals in California to peel off some of the support of the Hispanics for Hillary.
Now, where is Hillary? Well, thanks to this program, Hillary had to come out against this. She could go back now. She could change her mind. She could say, ‘I’ve talked to Governor Schwarzenegger, I understand what he’s trying to do here,’ who knows. But the Democrat Party is divided purely along racial lines. Look at the outcome. You had white women vote for Hillary, you had all blacks vote for Barack, and you had white guys vote for Edwards, the Breck Girl. The bloom is off the rose. The truth about what this party actually is is plain as day for all to see.
