Plus you never addressed my point about how come liberals have no problem thinking "SOME WHITES would not vote for Obama because he is Black" But Cannot accept that Blacks WOULD vote for him because he is black??
I thought I did when I said:
so many whites would not vote for Obama simply because he is Black?
I actually don't think that race was as important a deciding factor as most do. I can only point to anecdotal evidence, but, for example, some of my future in-laws are vocally racist and for months said they were voting for McCain -- but yesterday, they actually voted for Obama because they didn't want 4 more years of Republican lead policies (including both economic and foreign policy). It was the reserve Bradley effect. They were more concern with policy than skin color -- which is the way it should be, I think!
I don't think we are going to see eye to eye on this -- and that's okay. I'm sure you (the collective you who doesn't support Obama) will have many reasons to complain over the next 4 years, just as I hope that I, as an Obama supporter, will have many reasons to be grateful for the choices I made that helped, even in a small way, Virginia go blue.
In the meantime -- I'm just glad you're back.
