    Not really - use the same metrics to weigh her career as a white guy. Harvard, Harvard Law, U.S. Attorney, partner in large law firm for a decade, another stint as U.S. attorney. Pretty obvious a lot of powerful and accomplished people in a lot of different contexts believed she was smart, motivated and effective in her job. It's not hard. You just have to put aside racism and bigotry.

    Same way the burden is on, say, Romney he's not an affirmative action baby who only got where he is today because daddy was Gov. and CEO of a major auto company? Like that? Or do rich white boys get held to a different standard? The biggest and longest lasting and ongoing affirmative action program in the country is preferential admissions to elite colleges for (mostly white) kids of rich daddies.

    LOL.

    Just curious, beyond the fact she IS black and a woman, care to share what evidence supports such a slur?

    And you cannot make a pacifist, draft dodging, deserter hippie become secretary of defense.

    A president should have a large level of independence for picking his team, but not without oversight. And that is no matter who the president is, democrat or republican, the choice must be a reasonable one or the senate should block it for that reason (not to play political games).
    Your hyperbole does nothing to lessen myb statement. No President is going to nominate a completely unqualified person for a cabinet position.

    I agree and the open racists are people who defend affirmative action on this forum. AA is the govt mandated discrimination of white people and the biggest hate crime in america. I oppose AA and thus am anti-racist. I want people judged on merit and no special treatment given out based on sex or color.

    That's not obvious at all. Very likely she got into harvard and graduated and got job offers solely because she's a black female.

    We'll put aside racism and bigotry when we end affirmative action. Why are you so opposed to judging people on merit?

    LOL....oh puh-lease. If you want to see racism...you need to look in a mirror. You will probably see something very telling staring back at you if you are willing to look. Then again...most racists fail to recognize it.

    HaHaHa!! That's funny.

    You want them judged on their merit, so you entirely dismissed the resume and qualifications of Lynch and claimed that this Harvard Law grad would be a waitress without AA. It's attitudes like that that made AA necessary.
