Election confusion

6 02 2008

Waleed Aly has a kinky take on Obama vs. Clinton Democratic shoot-out:

Clinton and Obama are compromised. This is not a criticism of them as politicians or as people. It is merely an observation that they do not represent disempowered social sectors in quite the way many have imagined they do. To portray Clinton as the female candidate and Obama as the black one is misleading.

OK… I guess Obama is only half black. But is Hillary not a woman? Perhaps Aly knows something we don’t… Alan Partridge style, perhaps?
