Sen. Ford picked Clinton, says Clyburn should have supported Obama

State Sen. Robert Ford, veteran of the Civil Rights movement, in a February 2007 issue of The Post and Courier for why he was endorsing Clinton:
Everywhere I go, people everywhere are singing the praises of Hillary.

It's a slim possibility for [Obama] to get the nomination, but then everybody else is doomed. Every Democrat running on that ticket next year would lose -- because he's black and he's top of the ticket. We'd lose the House and the Senate and the governors and everything.

And Ford in Wednesday's Post and Courier:
I am speaking of Congressman James Clyburn, who during the primary remained neutral and didn't support Obama. Now he has everyone thinking he played a major role in Obama's primary win in South Carolina.

As if I didn't already think Ford was a big enough fool for calling for South Carolina to reinstate video poker.

Those are quote snippets for sure, but I think they fairly well reflect the absurdness of Ford calling Clybrun out.
