    If anybody can apply for the job but you only hire certain kinds of people and your parameters aren't matters of record, that's the definition of an unwritten policy.
    If you believe that then so be it. I don't like where this is going.

    Here in Virginia we had an excellent State Senator, Governor, and later the Mayor of Richmond.

    Douglas Wilder is one of mine, and many Virginian's, all time favorite politicians. We didn't care what race he was and enough Republicans, like myself at the time, didn’t even care that he was a Democrat.

    It's good for AP.

    Who else is doing a good job reporting this?

    Idk, but it was the AP that got the documents that revealed this practice, a journalist named Ted Bridis did it.

    AFAICT, they're still at it. Now, their rhetoric and charges aren't as fiery or dramatic as Rep Issa's. So it may not make as popular of reading.

    Emails: Insiders worried over political 'meddling' - Yahoo! News
    "This level of attention is CRAZY," Callahan wrote in December 2009 to her then-deputy, Catherine Papoi. Callahan said she hoped someone outside the Obama administration would discover details of the political reviews, possibly by asking for evidence of them under the Freedom of Information Act itself: "I really really want someone to FOIA this whole damn process," Callahan wrote.

    I am not sure how related this is...but it contains e-mails in re requests from the reporters who broke the story. Unfortunately, those sections are somewhat redacted. :( lol

    We were talking about the Presidency of the United States. Move the goal posts if you must, but it won't score you any points.
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    In the country today as you clarified earlier.

    You're basically arguing that what has already happened is impossible.

    Kinda silly.

    I don't need you to look up anything for me.

    I already know this story is not being reported by the lefty media.

    No, not really. You started off arguing that this country doesn't have a well-defined pattern of traits common to the Presidents it elects, and then you tried to broaden the discussion to elections across the nation.

    Do a victory dance if it helps, but you're still wrong.

    And I stated that I thought you meant in the country today and you replied back that in fact you did.

    I completely agree that as late as the 70's a non-white male Christian would stand little chance to be elected President.

    For the past three decades IMO that has not been the case.

    I'm pointing out that minorities can be very popular political candidates in America today. Even here in Virginia.

    It's been that way for some time now.

    Of course I'm wrong. Obviously a minority would never be elected as POTUS today. Anyone can see that.

    Bush wasn't just ineffective in stopping it, his deregulatory policies were instrumental in causing it.

    That's great and all, except that, up until 2008, the Presidents we in fact elected pretty much blow your opinion away, and even then most of the unwritten policy items I mentioned are still in place -- as I've now said multiple times.
