HillaryClinton_c0-255-4535-2898_s561x327CHARLESTON, S.C. — She has mastered the art of affecting a folksy twang when speaking to Southern crowds and her husband once boasted that he was the first black president, but Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Rodham Clinton has a long way to go to win over black voters crucial to victory in South Carolina’s early primary.

Mrs. Clinton, who on Wednesday will make her second visit to the Palmetto State, moved early and forcefully to shore up support of black voters, but that Democratic bloc has yet to coalesce behind her. That includes young blacks who say they have lost faith in politics after their experience with President Obama.

Muhammad Rasheed, 30, let out a long sigh when asked about Mrs. Clinton.

    It has got to be hard for any democrat to drum up support after the pathetic performance of the last administration.

    Everyone knows how well the blacks have done under Obama (sarcasm) So I am sure that they also believe that Hitlery will take good care of them. LOL

    I like the way southerners speak and have fun when in those conversations. Hillary’s “folksy twang” is as fake and unamusing as a counterfeit twenty dollar bill.
