      make a good VP because of racism.

      There, I said it.

      You want to see the Republicans implode? There's how you do it.

      Racism may be declining in this country, but it's FAR from over. There's a reason the Voting Rights Act is being renewed.

      Do I like it? No. But have I heard enough people use the word "nigger"? Yeah.

      About the only way you're gonna something other than a  white guy as president is if both parties ran something other than a white guy at the same time- and you can bet your ass some racist or sexist moron would be out there with a third party "to provide a choice".

      Welcome to America.

        I think what you have described is the AARP and not america as a whole.

        We have just had 2 female and 2 black Sec. of State.  

        The trick to moving this country forward is to get the Baby Boomers to freaking retire and let us GenXers clean up the country.

        •  They're not voted on by the electorate (0+ / 0-)

          they're appointed by the Senate.

          Now if you asked me if the population under the Baby Boomers' age would elect Colin Powell, my answer would be a wholehearted yes.

          But we need to face facts- the AARP and those of that age group are the heaviest voting block in the country.
