It appears Representative Clyburn
got the ball rolling on the latest attempt by Democrats to play the race and
gender cards. Representative Marcia
Fudge, who is set to become the leader of the Congressional Black Caucus, accused
Republicans of racism and sexism in their opposition to Rice’s nomination for
Secretary of State. Former Obama
campaign advisor Mark Hannah took it a step further by accusing Republicans of
only attacking African-American members of the Obama Administration.
