How Hillary Clinton won the battle for the black vote in South Carolina

snip//

She’s been working in and with South Carolinians since the ’70s, but every decade since then, she’s been in and out of the state working with people,” Middleton said. “She has deep roots here, and it has blossomed over the years.”


But all that support seemingly vanished in 2008, when Clinton faced off against Obama, the first African-American major-party presidential primary frontrunner. Rev. Joseph Darby, vice president of the Charleston branch of the NAACP, attributed Clinton’s loss that year to the simple fact that voters had — and wanted to take — the chance to elect the first black president.

“Before that possibility came, Hillary was actually doing quite well,” Darby explained. “She had nailed down a good number of endorsements.”

Nevertheless, even after being beaten by Obama in South Carolina, Clinton never retreated from South Carolina, Darby said.

“I don’t think Hillary’s ever been off the ground except for the little while when there was a tiff after the ’08 primary. She has stayed in touch with the community. She started laying groundwork for this run, oh, probably three or four years ago. She’s had people circulating. … She’s talked to the right folks,” Darby said, adding, “I don’t think South Carolina ever entirely left the Clintons. It might have parked them in the corner for one election, but they’ve maintained good relationships.”

This is how you do it.. you don't retreat.. you build good relationships over the years because you care about your friends. That's how Hillary WON South Carolina. The Voters Are Smart.. they know who their friends are.


Hillary Clinton waved to supporters at a rally in Columbia, S.C., after winning the South Carolina Democratic presidential primary on Saturday. "We're not taking anything, and we're not taking anyone for granted," she told supporters.

1. Thanks, cha, yes she did not walk away from them, she also did not

Walk away from her opponent, campaigned for Obama. Nominated him on the convention floor and served as his SOS. She will not walk away as president.

3. Awww, that's so sweet what you said about not walking away from President Obama, Thinking!

Right.. Hillary actually cares about our country.. she lost in 2008 but she nominated Obama at the convention.. and in his infinite wisdom President Obama chose her to be his SOS.

Turned out to be one of the best decisions he's ever made.. so sayeth the Prez himself!

And, he most certainly wants Hillary to be #45! it's such so great.. these two are such highly respectful friends. That's what friends do.. they help each other.





Mahalo~

16. I love that last pic so much!

This is what friendship looks like. I know Bernie tries to claim he and Obama are friends, but I bet no-one has ever seen anything close to the obvious friendship that exists between #44 and soon to be #45.
Didn't someone in Sander's campaign "question" the friendship between Pres Obama and Hillary Clinton saying that she was trying to wrap herself in this so-called friendship for political gain?

17. yeah, bernie says a lot of things.. and one can only look @ the way he disses the President

to know .. they're not "friends" .. no matter how BS tries to make it so.. now he knows how popular Obama is. lol It's too late.

Yeah, BS himself got backlash for suggesting Hillary was cozying up to the President for votes from the AA community.

Backlash against Sanders as he questions Clinton’s embrace of Obama

19. Back at you Cha!

The best backlash Sanders is getting is that he isn't going to be the leader of a revolution after all! He will lose the SS and head home to Vermont to be as anti-establishment as he pleases.

2. Exactly

But to hear others tell it she was just using SC for votes. People were duped by her. This was all a calculation. She has been in SC even when there wasn't any political gain for her. The voters saw that.

7. I don't

understand it. This goes beyond Clinton hate. Just about everything the Clintons have done has been cheered by the left. Now they treat them like the GOP has since the 90's. Stuff they have debunk is being treated as fact by the people who debunked it.

The Clintons, just like every other politicians have good and bad. And I mean every politician. Why is it that Hillary has to apologize and explain herself and not others?

I wouldn't underestimate that at all. Women have to apologize and explain for things that never cross men's radars.

25. There is also a segment of progressive women who have never

"forgiven" her for not leaving Bill. As if it is any of their business...
Shocked me the first time I saw a group of them posting about it.

5. Hillary is not just a candidate for whom

the right boxes can be ticked simply because she participated in a few demonstrations long ago. She is a candidate who has been there day in and day out throughout her career on issues that affect us all.

Great post, Cha! Mahalo!

15. Thanks for this, Cha

Hillary is drawing the smart voters. No matter how some attempt to diminish and ridicule one of the most important blocks of the Democratic base, they have her back because she IS the wise choice.

20. Bottom line is, she & Obama got over it. It took longer for their respective supporters, but I....

can't imagine supporting anyone else, at this point. The feeling is almost like a homecoming.
