Along with that stuff, you should have bought some Pepto-Bismol.

That's very considerate of you to be concerned about me, but I went to the store yesterday afternoon and had to stand in line for about 20 minutes.

When I looked at my check- out, all I had was junk like popcorn, peanuts, potato chips, Coca Cola and ice cream. I guess I'm very well prepared.LOL

I just thought of a few other things - - President Kennedy is the only Roman Catholic President we've ever had.

Also we have never had a Jewish president and we've never had a female president.

We have all kinds of people in United States and they have all kinds of gifts to offer.

Rather than posting right now, you should be at the supermarket stocking up on provisions to prepare for the coming ice storm.

ice storm conditions are rare where I am because I am so close to the coast. the salt air inhibits them.

 

boy would I like a good ice storm! :)

You don't necessarily have to be a racist to be uncomfortable with two Democratic Black Presidents in a row. Saying that you are completely comfortable with it is political correctness. Even I am not 100% comfortable with it.

 

Once one starts playing the identity politics game then of course one would be "uncomfortable"  anytime there are two of the same 'types' in a row.     Identity politics 'requires' diversity.   

 

It is my belief related to politicians and bigotry that the goal was to view each person as an individual and that no one would be disqualified just because of their race, gender, religion (or lack of),  etc....       If one has this POV then they wouldn't be uncomfortable with 'in a row' black male Presidents or while females ones,  or Latino of any gender etc..,  they just need to be solid individuals.

 

But when the main focus is identity politics the focus becomes less on the qualities of the individual and more on 'it is this 'types' time'.

And now the next sentence will be Hillary Clinton ought to be the next president of the United States because she won the popular vote.

I'm the realist here because shoulds and oughts don't have any place in the vocabulary of a real realist.

Mondale got slaughtered. Gore SHOULD have been declared the winner.

Over 30 years ago I interviewed Geraldine Ferraro when she was running for vice president - - and we all thought it was such a big deal. But nothing came of it either.

Considering that Joe Lieberman almost became VP 17 years ago, no.
