They Cross Each Other Out

I don't think either of these candidates will win the presidency, but one of them will win the Democratic nomination. Barak Obama is raising money and gaining momentum in the polls. That doesn't necessarily translate to votes though. Hillary Clinton has always been the front runner for Democrats, largely because of her husband. In my opinion both of them are a longshot.

Much is being made of Oprah Winfrey's endorsement of Barack Obama, but I don't think it will make that much difference. As long as Oprah deals with matters of the heart and is buying cars for her audience. She is pretty much given free roam. When she speaks out against other people with money, it's a different story. Look at the backlash she suffered from her comments against the "Cattle Growers of America." She eventually won the lawsuit, but they made her pay for opening her mouth. It might not even reach that point, but if it does. Instead of her lifting Barack, I think he will pull her down. If her endorsement proves to cause a problem, they'll dig up something on her. Notice when the sex scandal at her school for girls came out. Kanye West made a controversial political statement, and his career hasn't really recovered yet. It's kind of like talking about someones family member. They can talk about them, but you can't.

Much less has been said about Magic Johnson endorsing Hillary Clinton. Probably because he isn't causing any unexpected waves in the party. Blacks are expected to vote democratic anyway, so why not support the expected nomination? Barack Obama is a dark horse who has done much better than expected so far. What Magic's endorsement does is further split the one vote he has to get in order to win. He is the first high profile black to publicly go against the grain. Except for them who might be jealous like Al and Jesse, who have ran for president themselves. They both seem to be unusally critical of another black man. I wouldn't vote for Hillary if she was the only one running. Unlike Magic I have nothing to gain. I'm sure she has promised him something, like she has everybody else.

I have always said from the very beginning. "Either one of them getting the nomination only assures us of another Republican President." As far as how much these two will influence the election with their respective endorsements. They cancel each other out.
