Opening the Old Boy network: experience = access = Mrs. Clinton

“Regarding Asian American voters, the biggest story was that in California, they voted for Clinton by a surprisingly large margin of 3-to-1. These particular results have led many to ask to what extent did racial prejudice against Blacks (and therefore, against Obama) play in their decisions to overwhelmingly support Clinton.

“Fortunately, others have argued quite convincingly that rather than racial prejudice, the main reasons why Asian American voters in California voted in large numbers for Clinton more than likely included a preference for more familiar, ‘establishment’ candidates, and those who are currently more associated with being powerful and influential, both of which Clinton personifies more than Obama.”
