CNN’s Kyra Phillips talked with Wall Street Journal’s Atlanta Bureau Chief Douglas Blackmon and Lillie McCain who is a black relative of John McCain. Lillie McCain urged John McCain to “acknowledge the reality of the relationship that we hold.”

Lillie told the South Florida Times that she favored Barack Obama over John McCain. “I am absolutely supporting Obama, and it’s not because he’s black. It’s because he is the best person at this time in our history.”
