Split Decision on Affirmative Action

The Supreme Court issued decisions on two cases relating to affirmative action this morning.

Seven of the nine candidates were on hand for Rev. Jesse Jackson’s PUSH/Rainbow Coalition meeting yesterday, where affirmative action was one of the main topics of conversation. Graham and Edwards, both from the South, were not on hand due to “scheduling conflicts.” Not sure who’s handling scheduling for those two but given the timing of the Supreme Court’s decision, seems like a missed opportunity to me.

And for a group that was so gung-ho on Sunday, why isn’t there any mention on any Democratic candidate web site?
