In a more diverse America, a mostly white RNC

Only 36 of the 2,380 delegates seated on the convention floor are black, the lowest number since the Joint Center for Political and Economic Studies began tracking diversity at political conventions 40 years ago. Each night, the overwhelmingly white audience watches a series of white politicians step to the lectern - a visual reminder that no black Republican has served as a governor, U.S. senator or U.S. House member in the past six years.

Was there a sign in the parking lot that said "No Coloreds Allowed"? Post a link to that, please.

The poll also found that men accounted for 68 percent of Republican delegates

....and the 68% Republican men had the courage and good sense to choose the best candidate for Vice President regardless of gender, pretty cool I'd say. What did you say the Dems. did with Senator Clinton, oh yea, nothing....

..... Old School Politics; the old republicans are evil white guys. I think that is working for ya - just ask Chris Matthews and "Ober-whatever" how that worked for them in primetime.

I think the Democratic party national website should add you as their primary link. Your pretty insightful.

Keep up the great work - and Go Obama!
