Both parties have been enmeshed with racial politics for some time now. Obama thinks that people are tired of it, that he can appeal to their aspirations to move beyond it, and thus whites will vote for him. It remands to be seen, it may be that the Amercian people are not ready to move beyond race. Billery is making the claim that Obama is not electable because America is not able to embrace a black man for President, thus the party should choose her. The problem with her argument is that histrically Americans are have often been willing to accept a black man before they are willing to accept a white woman. Blacks got the vote first, and were allowed into the military first.
