Bill Clinton ready to campaign for 'Jews and Crackers'
"When [the Clinton Global Initiative] is over, and after the Jewish holidays, which follow close on it, I intend to go to Florida, to Ohio, to northeast Pennsylvania, and to Nevada at a minimum," he said. (snip)
"But Senator Obama also has a big stake in doing well in the Jewish community in Florida, where Hillary did very well and where I did very well. And I just think respecting the holidays is a good thing to do," he said.
Yes, there is a significant minority of Jews in Florida and much smaller populations in the other areas mentioned, but people of other backgrounds live there also, who are not celebrating religious holidays at this time; Clinton can pitch to them without offending Jews.
But never fear, in due time the holidays will be over and Clinton will also begin campaigning to his other natural constituency, or, as he put it
...they may want me to go sort of hustle up what Lawton Chiles used to call the 'cracker vote' there."
