Race And The Race

Today I talked with Alvin Reid, city editor of the St. Louis American, about Barack Obama's win in the Iowa caucuses and what it says about the role of race in the presidential race. Does the fact that he won in a state that's only about 2% black say something about changing perceptions in this county? Would America elect a black man? If he is the Democratic nominee, does he automatically get every black vote?
