Well, the only way to derail a possible populist Juggernaut is to point out the obvious and make people feel stupid for apparently not noticing it. Barack Obama's anti corporate message has been effectively drowned in the sudden realization of White voters that he's black. Black voters too have suddenly stopped listening to his broader "it's the rich against the poor" message and have simply starting supporting him because "he's black". The Democrats don't want to totally destroy Barack Obama, just marginalize and pigeon hole his message and consolidate his constituency. This is so that after the Corporate candidate "wins" the nomination, Barack Obama can then dutifully throw his support to this corporate candidate and the DEMS can then count on the black vote without all this nonsense about populist causes and economic equality.
The Establishment used Martin Luther king the same way back in the sixties. Good ol Martin was running around from ghetto to ghetto talking about how it's time for all black people to get to sit any where on the bus. He was also conveniently clamoring for non violent Resistance. Non violent Resistance makes protesters much easier to handle and brush aside. I believe that ultimately Dr. King realized that he was being used as a divider. He saw that, while it's true Blacks were being victimized by economic violence, it was the poor of all colors who were the victims of the Class hierarchy. That was the real total injustice being prosecuted, not only in America. but world wide. And it still is.
So, what's Barack Obama to do? Well, he can't do much really. New Hampshire showed him he can't win even when a clear majority of all colors supported and probably voted for him. The black-white thing, sadly has closed the ears of many who would have otherwise listened to him. Is it fair to blame this on the Clintons? I don't know, but I do know this, once Obama wins the black majority in South Carolina, the pigeon holing will be complete. Barack Obama will be left with little alternative but to continue on and support the Democratic ticket and bring his voters with him. As Americans we really are that stupid. This is how the Establishment has kept the Lower classes divided against themselves forever and it still works.
With the elimination of Kucinnich, Ron Paul and now the pigeon holing of Barack Obama the Populist concerns are good and gone from the 08 election. The high profile racial-gender debate between Obama and Clintons has also effectively drowned out the voice of John Edwards. You have to hand it to the Establishment, they are pure genius in being able to manufacture Democracy that suits their purposes. Other than a few fringe writers here and there, no one, and I mean no one seems to care or even notice.
Long Live Dr. ML King. Barack, enjoy being made into a stereo typical caricature. I hope those shoes aren't too confining, come on, be a good soldier. So when's Bill gonna break out that saxophone again? When he does you can be sure that Hillary will waltz and Barack will tap dance for the folks. And the wars, the war goes on day after day as a back ground for Bill's saxophone while we are all mesmerized in the "dance" of Democracy.
