Rep. James Clyburn sharply criticized Bill Clinton in today's NY Times:
"When he was going through his impeachment problems, it was the black community that bellied up to the bar,” Mr. Clyburn said. “I think black folks feel strongly that this is a strange way for President Clinton to show his appreciation."

... 
"Mr. Clyburn added that there appeared to be an almost unanimous view among African-Americans that Mr. and Mrs. Clinton were committed to doing everything they possibly could to damage Mr. Obama to a point that he could never win in the general election."

Update:  Interesting London Times article on race in the campaign.  It essentially argues that Hillary is more electable...
