In what universe do people actually believe a black man can be elected president in the USA in 2008?

And I adore Barack Obama.

Not in mine. No doubt we will elect a white Protestant male. There is nothing wrong with white Protestant males, but I'd like to think someone else could be elected President.

Very true. The U.S. is 28% Catholic. Are we ever going to elect another Catholic president? I seriously doubt it.

I wouldn't mind having a non-white, or non-protestant, or non-male president. I would hope that they are constitutional though.

Good thing we have Alberto Gonzales to reflect that diversity!

Well, when does the subjective standard apply and when do we go by race/gender alone?

Politics without subjectivity? As I understand it politics is 90% subjectivity. Our choices for president are highly personal.

Unless you can accuse your opponent of being racist/sexist based on their appointments....

Hate to cut in, but do you know for a fact that Alberto Gonzales is a bad person? Or do you dislike him just because he's going to take Ashcroft's job? Give the guy a chance, will you.

i don't mean he's bad as a person. there's a whole thread on him that you need to see why i wouldn't like him. he's also one of the key legal experts that decided about the treatment and the indefinite holding of detainees.

If he ran in 2008 -- which is very doubtful, even by U2D/Verte/Pax standards -- KERRY would probably only win maybe 9 states instead of the mere 19 states this time (yes, Bush won a whopping 31 states)!
