What does Jesse Jackson think of Clinton's controversial comments? Gina knows.

by guest contributor Tami of What Tami Said

What does Jesse Jackson think of former President Bill Clinton's controversial recent attempt to paint Barack Obama as the Jackson of 2008? A black blogger, our own warrior princess Gina, was the first to get the scoop from Jackson himself.

Gina, on assignment for Essence magazine, recently spoke with Jackson, who is in India as the country marks the 60th anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi's assassination. In addition to getting the former presidential candidate's thoughts on Clinton's remarks, Gina also spoke to him about many of the issues raised here on What About Our Daughters and on the Black Women's Roundtable. Can a black candidate transcend race? Will African Americans automatically be better off under a black president? Will we see a black woman candidate win multiple primaries and caucuses in our life times? Why is the civil rights industrial complex so lukewarm about Barack Obama?

The interview is up on essence.com.
