What an incredibly open minded statement.

As suspected, this is another one of your troll threads.

It's ridiculous to assume that people should be elected (or not) by their color. We are all Americans, and I would never vote for such a limited category.

Obama was half white, and people seem to forget that because he is so racist. Ben Carson would probably make a fine president and I would definitely consider voting for him, especially after his strong debate showing- and it has nothing to do with race.

Depends on what you mean by "lifetimes"? For most posters on C-D Politics, no it won't happen in their lifetimes.

Remember, Mr. Trump said there won't be another black President for a long time - I don't know why Ben Carson has not dropped out yet. Mr. Trump's insight would hopefully dissuade the likes of Alan West from running for President.

Not for a long time but I would not dismiss my lifetime.

Absolutely. I would have no problem with either sex or any ethnic background as long as they were capable and honest

Oh is that why the rich got richer during Obama's term. He doesn't support the richest Americans.

Spot on, and something the "progressives" just can't get through their thick skulls. It's amazing they still think a no talent community organizer was competent to be president, even after 6 years of on the job training he still isn't competent.

Obama had no governing experience when elected. He was elected because this country is indeed racist. People showed up in droves to elect him simply because he is black. Many people who have never voted did so. They wanted to vote in a black president. It sure wasn't because of his credentials.
