    Why "token"? Is he not a fully empowered US Senator?

    Token? What makes you call him that? Are you saying he's not qualified to be a Senator?

    I remember the press conference when Mondale introduced Geraldine Ferraro. You could tell by the tone of his voice, he was certain that he had just won the election based on the novelty of picking the first female VP candidate.

    You are right. Mondale thought the novelty of having the first female VP running mate was an easy path to victory.

    I find it hilarious that after all of the race baiting so many liberals did in this forum leading up to the election, now they do not seem to want to talk about race.

    That is such a racist statement. You make it appear that you see any politician elected outside the democrat party as a "token black". You seem to think the democrat party owns them.

    Do you have some kind of point you are attempting to make??? What does Reagan's great campaign humor have to do with Mondale picking a woman as his running mate?

    COLUMBIA, South Carolina South Carolina voters have sent Republican Tim Scott back to the U.S. Senate, making him the first black candidate to win a statewide race since just after the Civil War. Scott was declared the winner based on projections from exit poll data.

    Scott has served in the U.S. Senate since January 2013, appointed to the post by Gov. Nikki Haley after Jim DeMint resigned. He has spent his time quietly building support back home and expanding his base from Charleston. His seat will be up for re-election for a full term in 2016. Scott is also the first African-American senator from the South since Reconstruction.

    A historic achievement! Congrats to Scott for this.

    Hopefully he wont receive the same guff he got last time from the democrat party.



    Nikki Haley (women of Sikh descent, governor) and Tim Scott, black senator.... and they still call us racists....



    We got over that stuff long ago; wish the rest of the country would get over the stereotype.
