    A question for those so impressed by Davis's change of heart-
    When a lifelong soldier, who rose to Sec of State, changed from endorsing BushII for a second time and instead chose Obama was it more important than this rather unknown politician?

    I'm sure those who have already decided to vote for Willard wish to see this as a big deal and will continue to see it as so.

    I doubt it means much to the rest of the nation.
    It does not mean anything at all to the average voter you are right but for politically aware people that watch trends it is a chink in the armor and could very well signal a crumbling of the dam the Dem's have blacks held in by. When dams break it starts with little leaks that soon widen and before you know it the whole thing suddenly collapses. Time will tell.

    I believe you are exhibiting the heights of wishful, some would say delusional thinking if you think minorities would go rushing to the GOP. It would be like planned parenthood endorsing Romney.

    Horrible analogy. Being anti abortion makes you a bad fit with planned parenthood whereas blacks share alot of values with the Rep party but it has been ingrained in their culture that they vote Dem, they may be waking up.

    Your kidding right? After Newt and Santorum's demagoguery I don't see minorities or women racing to join the GOP or vote for Willard.

    Seems to me if the GOP was so embracing of minorities the convention would have a few more not so pale representatives. It took a great deal of very good camera work to find two that were not eggshell. Three if you include Condi.

    For me the most telling switch wasn't Mr. Davis but General/Sec of State Powell. From strong Republican to criticizing the new drift to the rather vicious right wing stances.

    Planned Parenthood is the perfect comparison. Far more is done at PP than coordinating abortions but the extreme right wing can see nothing else.

    But we shall see if the minorities flee the Dems for the GOP.

    GOP does not embrace minorities it embraces Americans. Someday blacks may think of themselves as Americans first and blacks second, that will spell the end for the Dems.

    Sound noble and uplifting, until you remember Newt and Santorum's speeches. Minorities DO think of themselves as US citizens, problem with the GOP is there is more than one way to see what it is to be a US Citizen and the GOP way isn't very inclusive.

    No disrespect intended, but this is why the GOP will never have minority Americans flock to them. Celebrating or defending your heritage, is not an act of being un-American.
