Another day, another dollar

The whole behind the scenes happenings is really intriguing on the Democratic side of the aisle.

For many years, the Democrats have sold people on the idea that they care about the working class of America.

Yet, another day has passed and another story is out about how well Obama is doing in the working class environment.

Besides the fact that the three celebrity women at the UCLA rally don't qualify as young in a state as young as California, such analysis suffered from a common cultural, class and geographic bias about the state. And thus the story was missed. Obama, for all the interest he generated in wealthy coastal precincts, was failing in a frantic effort to gain traction in the California heartland: the Inland Empire counties of San Bernardino and Riverside, and the Central Valley stalwarts, Fresno and Kern counties.

Obama supporters are the rich elitists in the Democratic party. From the Kennedy's to the Oprah in the Democrat Party, Obama has their support.

Clinton is clearly winning the support of the working class Democrats-

Inland California was Clinton country, providing her the huge margins that paved the way for her 10-point victory statewide. Her performance in the interior demonstrated once again her national stranglehold on poor and working-class voters. In California, she won big majorities among people who make less than $50,000 a year, while Obama won majorities among those making $100,000 or more, according to exit polls.

There are truly two Americas in the Democrat Party. The rich, powerful and education elitists are supporting Obama. The poor working class support Clinton.

It is just interesting.
