With Obama saying the hour is upon us to elect a black man and Hillary saying the hour is upon us to elect a woman, the Democratic primary has become the ultimate nightmare of liberal identity politics. All the victimizations go tripping over each other and colliding, a competition of historical guilts.Perhaps the Democrats can solve their problems by drafting a black woman candidate at the convention in Denver. I hear Cynthia McKinney is looking for a job. Or maybe Condi?

Ah, but drafting a black woman at the convention based solely on her race and gender might erode homosexual Hispanic support
True, Ms. McKinney may not rally the Latino and gay communities to her side. But there are plenty of Americans who are black and Latino. Presumably, half are female. And some of them are gay. Which means the perfect candidate is out there, waiting to be found.Post a Comment
