Re: Prediction (not hedging)

Let me say this: how deeply I regret that I cannot get behind the first legitimate African-American candidate for president.

Would that the first had been any of the conservative African-Americans about whom I've posted before and to whom I've contributed. I could pull that lever in a second...ok, maybe not Lynn Swann. Given the Republican candidate, I might even have considered Harold Ford (my favorite A-A Democrat).

I've long believed and hoped that the first woman or first A-A prez would be an elephant. I hope that belief is not shattered in November.
