in response to reader comment: Obaam would fail security clearance

you have a black man who just got voted into office by a whale of a lot of whites. The prejudice is more likely on the other side of the aisle. 98% blacks voted blindly for a man strictly on the the fact that he was black.

I'm a white man that would have voted for any one of a number of black men or women. There are numerous candidates out there who are far more honest than the one just voted in. I would have voted for any one of a number of them in a heart beat. So would of an even larger number of whites than just I.

Obama, however, was not a good choice. And, again, an awful lot of whites went ahead and voted for a black man depsite all the "racial prejudice" that a few people like you think still prevails.
