Your Turn: The Week In Carolina (or: Always The Cheerleader)

Clinton-Carolina

I was wondering what you saw in this image.

It seems like a play on the rather searing contradiction surfacing in South Carolina this week between Bill Clinton’s two identities — the affectionate one as “America’s first black president,” and the second as Hillary’s (problematic) attack dog.

(I’ll save my own thoughts for the discussion thread.)

Update 1/23/08:  I just added on to the title.  Hope that doesn’t lend too much skewI explain in the thread….
