Said Bill Clinton today in Columbia, SC: "Jesse Jackson won South Carolina in ’84 and ’88. Jackson ran a good campaign.  And Obama ran a good campaign here."

This was in response to a question from ABC News’ David Wright about it taking "two Clintons to beat" Obama. Jackson had not been mentioned.

Boy, I can’t understand why anyone would think the Clintons are running a race-baiting campaign to paint Obama as "the black candidate."
