Argh.

Frankly, I’m more than a little tired of hearing people say that neither Obama or Clinton can win the presidency based solely on the fact that one is black and the other is a woman.

When you say that, you’re in effect saying that you wouldn’t vote for them based on those qualities alone, because you’re speaking for other American citizens.

If you can stay objective and base your vote only on how a candidate stands on the issues and how that candidate would lead this country, why can’t the rest of the country? Not having any faith in the rest of the populace breeds the kind of intolerance and ignorance that you’re assuming exists.

It doesn’t help.

I could give two shits whether the next president is black, white, male, female or a dwarf Hopi Indian hermaphrodite. So long as he, she or it doesn’t fuck this country up any further.
