Really Carol?

I wasn't sure how I wanted to approach this issue, but I think I will just go head on.  I think that Carol Moseley Braun's pronouncement that former President Clinton coming to Chicago to stump for Rahm Emanuel (of whom I am not a big fan) would alienate the city's black community is one of the silliest things I've heard.  Why not hit Emanuel on what he missed about the city during his tenure in the White House?  Why not make the argument that star power doesn't equate with a great potential Chicago mayor?  To bring up race in this contest (and to attack former President Clinton in the process), and in such a strange and unnecessary way, just reeks of desperation.
