Kay Hagan (D-NC) was flying high in polling prior to the Obamacare debacle being exposed.

Now she’s pretty much tied with any of a number of potential Republican challengers for 2014.

Yet the evidence is becoming more clear that it is not race that is the problem, it’s Obama.

In an ironic twist, Bill Clinton is now distancing himself from Obamacare. In an interview earlier this month, Bill Clinton told online magazine Ozy:
