Well this is interesting

I was wondering why Sen. Clinton hasn't told her husband to STFU, because his comments haven't helped her. Or ... have they? According to this article by Dick Morris for the Rasmussen Reports, these comments are part of the Clintons' strategy to send a message to white voters that this is a racial fight between Sen. Clinton and Sen. Obama, hoping there will be a massive white backlash benefiting Clinton. Now it all makes sense - why else would Bill Clinton make such asinine comments as, "Well, Jesse Jackson won South Carolina, too," or "People tend to vote for candidates who look like themselves." (yeah, right - what about all those white people in Iowa, men and women, who voted for Obama?) Who, exactly, is playing the race card here?
