A Parting "Gift" from the Clintons?

While the Republican Party has had its own problems -- some are uncomfortable with Romney's religion, or McCain's temperament and issue positions, or some of Giuliani's stands on social issues, or Huckabee's economic and foreign policy positions -- the Democrats are having trouble of their own, not that the MSM will be eager to cover it from that angle.

The controversy among African-Americans about whether the Clintons are using racially-charged language in Hillary's campaign against Barack Obama could be a real problem for the Dems in the fall, to the extent that it embitters black voters. Especially, that is, if (say) Hillary successfully beat out Barack for the nomination, declined to name him VP, and the Republicans put a prominent GOP'er like Condoleezza Rice, Ken Blackwell or Michael Steele on the ticket as VP.

Wouldn't it be something if the Clintons' parting "gift" to the Democratic Party was helping Republicans loosen the stranglehold it's had on the African-American vote for too long?

An intriguing possibility, albeit an unlikely one.
