Think about it though, Haley and Jindal are not just representatives of a minority that have made their way to a position of high responsibility, they did so in states that, ant least according to Liberals, are hotbeds of ignorant racism.
They couldn't have reached their lofty perches without the support of local conservatives.
Likewise Cruz in Texas. Not sure what percentage of the Hispanic Texan vote he got, but he wouldn't have won without a whole lot of conservative Anglo votes.
Clearly, the race and nationality of these folks didn't win their elections for them, their positions did.
Republicans are moving towards a place we all want without the baggage of focusing on race and gender, but doing just what we all claim we want...judging people by their ideas, not their superficial characteristics.
