Clinton's Texas coordinator in her own words

The Clinton campaign's Texas coordinator uses right-wing smear language against Obama's followers (emphasis mine):

He's gotta show some ability to go beyond yuppies and latte drinkers and African-Americans and I haven't seen that happening in Texas yet."

First of all, Obama has shown a striking ability to reach across gender, racial, and income boundaries. His coalition is growing stronger and more diverse every day.

Secondly, this is the exact kind of language that Republicans used against Howard Dean in a notorious Club for Growth ad in '04. (I'll try to find the video for the Club for Growth ad and post it later.) Hillary's campaign should not be using the same language as those creeps.
