Rep. Emanuel Cleaver (D-MO), a member of the Congressional Black Caucus and a Hillary supporter, gave an interview to the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation with some, ahem, interesting theories as to why Obama does so well among whites:

• Whites look at Obama and think they have a chance to get “the boogeyman of race behind them.”

• After electing Obama, whites won’t want to address racial issues because they’ll think we’ve already demonstrated we’re not a racist nation.

• Obama seems articulate to whites, but in the black tradition, he’s mediocre.

• For white Americans, Obama can speak, but if you put him on a level with other African-American public speakers he may not even measure up.
