Politics: Black Democrats angry at the way the party went after Condoleezza Rice?

"The Dem attack on Rice was "very foolish" and "potentially costly" because it could backfire among blacks, said Democratic pollster Ron Lester, an expert on the African-American vote. "A lot of African-Americans are watching this and they're wondering why [Democrats] are going after her so hard. She has an exemplary record. She's probably better qualified than most secretaries of state that we have had." Rice, who was confirmed yesterday as the first black female secretary of state, has a very favorable rating among blacks — 55 percent positive and only 15 percent negative, Lester said. Another high-profile black Democrat was even more blunt, saying the attacks on Rice — featuring ex-Ku Klux Klan "kleagle" Sen. Robert Byrd (D-W.Va.) — "made me sick to my stomach."

Come election time in 2006 and 2008, blacks will vote 90%+ for whoever is on the Democratic tickets. Then wonder why the Dem party treats them like crap until the next election. When any one party can mark an ethnic group as in the bag for them down at a rate of 90% or more no matter what they don't do for you. You cease to have pull over that party.
