Solid Pride

As cable-TV know-nothings wail on about Virginia and New Jersey, Ruy Teixeira and Alan Abramowitz offer a sober analysis in the Times in Teixeira's column.

Sustaining their analysis are the people in Madison out for President Obama's visit to Madison yesterday.

Striking was the look in the eyes of several black women I saw, at street corners and lining the street of Fish Hatchery Road near the intersection of Badger Road. The look in the eyes was unmistakable and universal: Determined pride. One woman was a former Madison school principle, another drove up from Racine, others are Madison residents of the neighborhood.

Black women, this fastest growing voting demographic will save this country.
