Barron: Forget "Conservative" Clintons

Council member and former Black Panther Charles Barron hasn’t had any trouble making up his mind about who to support for President in 2008.

There is “no reason,” in his opinion, for local elected officials to be flocking to Hillary Clinton.

“For me,” he told me, “it’s going to be Barack Obama or nobody.”

Also, Barron does not buy the idea that Bill Clinton was the “first black President.” Not at all.
