The Plantation

It seems likely that Hillary Clinton's unbalanced "plantation" remarks, made yesterday to a "mostly black audience", will provide powerful ammunition against her in any national race -- especially when video of them is juxtaposed with video of Condoleeza Rice sounding empowered.

On the other hand, perhaps it should be a relief that Mrs. Clinton is not so calculating that she can't be tempted to excess by the roar of an approving crowd.

On Tradesports, neither Clinton nomination futures nor party-line election futures were visibly affected.
