I received an email today from a black elder asking me to reprint a column I wrote for an African American newspaper in April 2008 detailing the persistent racism in the Clinton campaign as it tried to derail Obama's historic run for the presidency.

Barack Obama's performance in the first debate was disastrous, I claimed, because "what he has seen of America since 2009 has broken his heart." His performance in the final presidential debate was superb for exactly that same reason.
