Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama apparently have more in common than I thought. Both seem to feel the need to sound like they came from the South. So recently they have been employing a southern accent and in many cases talk like they are black. Don Imus talked like he was black and it got him fired. They are applying for a job. I'm confused.
Hillary showed up in Selma, Alabama and started talking like an old black preacher. She did a terrible job. It's hard for a girl of privilege from the suburbs of Chicago to impersonate a southern black preacher. Hillary had one missing element to pull it off ... soul.
I agree that Hillary turns the cornpone accent on and off according to whether she believes it would serve her interests. I haven't noticed that with Obama, however. But I hope the Republicans aren't kidding themselves about Bush doing the same thing. Seems like there's a magical transformation in him at the moment he crosses the Mason-Dixon line and he goes from a native son of Connecticut to good ol' boy in the blink of an eye.
