Senator Barack Obama's "problem" with white working class and white female voters is a media created phenomenon courtesy of guilt by association. By the time Obama ran off the last of his 11 consecutive primary victories, specifically the so-called Potomac primaries, he had bested Sen. Clinton in virtually every category of white voters where she was alleged to be stronger. Enter Rev. Wright! Suddenly the words of someone else are falsely attributed to Senator Obama's "true nature" even though none of the Senator's past rhetoric points to any such expressions made by Rev. Wright.
A brief scan through the crowds of the multi-thousand person rallies and post primary speeches of Sen. Obama reveals vast amounts of diverse white voters and supporters. They can't all be prominent, high earning, Ivy League "elitists."
