All I hear in the discussions of the candidates is whether "Hillary is feminine enough" or whether Obama "is black enough", let alone how John Edwards is a better "woman's candidate" (WTH is a "woman's candidate", anyway??? Should I or do I vote differently because I am the proud owner of a double-X?? Dumbest thing I've ever heard.). I still don't know Obama's foreign policy stance. I still don't know what or if Hillary intends to do about the healthcare crisis. I am real tired of this personality politics cr@p or who is the "better minority candidate". Damn Democrats. /grumble. Captains Quarters
The first black president will be the candidate of African descent who wins the most Electoral College votes. The first female president will be the candidate with two X chromosomes who takes the oath of office on January 20 of the given year. Perhaps the Democrats might dispense with the gender and ethnic politics and just focus on policy instead.
