what do you think? I am sure many people will be "offended" by this simple question, but few will answer it. I think had michelle obama been white, barack obama would have lost the black vote. just my opinion though.

Again, being a democrat, alone, means that Obama would have an a good 85-90% of the black vote, to start, and that's assuming he hadn't run the massive campaign in black communities that he did.

DO we have any politicians that are black, that lost because their spouse is white?

but, in my opinion, he would have still won.

The better question is, would republicans be disrespecting the first lady in the way they are is Michelle had been white ?

My guess is that he meant the primaries, because the chart below has been posted enough times that Cons should have gotten the picture about the general.
