In South Carolina, Kamala Harris and Joe Biden in black and white

Byron York, Washington Examiner

It is still too early to see a definitive pattern in South Carolina. Back in 2007 and 2008, Hillary Clinton was leading in the Democratic primary race here, but when black voters realized Barack Obama was the real deal, not a protest or show horse candidate, they flocked to support him. That could, perhaps, be a model for Harris, in the Obama role, and Biden, in the Clinton role. "Hillary was popular early in 2008, but Obama devastated her in the last month," said David Woodard. "Now, the old Hillary Clinton base of liberals who don't fear UC Berkeley roots might be a potential group for Harris to rally. If that happens, and Harris wins here, it could be the end of Biden."
