    "other colored" as in not the color of Obama.

    Anyways, I agree with you that Obama has a very "hippy-ish" background, but I will also say that I personally have known more than a few people with backgrounds who became much more conservative depending on their situations. I've know people who were downright radical up until the moment they got a little bit of power, and then it changed completely. Bottom line is that I don't think you can put too much stock into personalities. The material circumstances and power relationships in which they exist end up being more influential.

      are both biracial, and were both raised by white parents. See where it got them?

      Years from now, the children of DLC-ers will sit around campfires telling stories about what happened to Martha Coakley in 2010.
