Political Analysis -- Jesse, Al, Barack, and Hillary

Rev. Jesse L. Jackson, Sr., affectionately called "Rev" in his inner circle, has earlier today has endorsed U.S. Senator Barack Obama in his bid for the presidency of the United States.

Rev. Al Sharpton has not yet made a formal endorsement of any candidate, but stated he will wait until after his National Action Network conference in April if any endorsement is to be made. He also decide to run for the presidency himself.

It is possible that Rev. Sharpton may endorse Senator Clinton's presidential bid. There we have an interesting situation that both may be in a winning position.

As of now, the Democratic nominee in 2008 will be either Obama or Clinton. Just suppose Obama wins the nomination. It is possible that both Jackson and Sharpton would urge Obama to choose Hillary Clinton as his vice-presidential running mate. Just suppose Clinton wins the nomination. Jackson and Sharpton could urge Clinton to choose Obama as her running mate.

Both of them running together would set an historic precedent of a Black man and a woman as running mates for a presidential election. That combination would energize the bases of both candidates.

If the Republican Party does not have a strong candidate, especially since the Republicans lost the House and Senate last November, one way or the other, Jackson and Sharpton would be visiting the White House again more often after 8 years.

Bill Clinton would make himself at home, again.

Booker T. Washington said:

"There is another class of colored people who make a business of keeping the troubles, the wrongs, and the hardships of the Negro race before the public. Having learned that they are able to make a living out of their troubles, they have grown into the settled habit of advertising their wrongs -- partly because they want sympathy and partly because it pays. Some of these people do not want the Negro to lose his grievances, because they do not want to lose their jobs....There is a certain class of race-problem solvers who do not want the patient to get well, because as long as the disease holds out they have not only an easy means of making a living, but also an easy medium through which to make themselves prominent before the public."
