Three-Fifths Compromise?

Jack and Jill Politics discusses the media's "three-fifths compromise" with regard to the black vote in South Carolina. Now, this is predicated on prognostications not only of how today's primary vote will turn out, but also on the media's predicted spin of that vote, but it's worth noting nevertheless that South Carolina - the largest state yet contested by the Democrats - may have to be a big win for Obama for him to reclaim his momentum going into the February 5 votes.

Y'know I was halfway convinced by Jack and Jill's analysis, particularly for why Obama began dominating the black vote relatively late.

But then I got to the part where the author, apparently seriously, compares downplaying a South Carolina win to the Three-Fifths Compromise. I stopped reading at a certain point I'm about to make as obvious as I can.

YOU DO NOT WANT TO GO DOWN THIS ROAD.
