The Strategic Underbelly to all the Race Talk of Late?

Is it all about framing the South Carolina primary? David Weigel argues:

The Clinton team doesn't expect to win South Carolina, and the best way of cushioning a blow right before Super Tuesday is to make the subliminal argument that Obama's victory only happened because half of the electorate was black. It would make the run-up to the victory less dramatic and gird the ever-shaky "Hillary's the best general election candidate" argument for the following nine days.
