    That's pretty rich.
    I don't know what's idiotic in discussing changes in demographics. The United States has been a predominately white country since it's inception but that's coming to an end. Soon we'll be a predominately Hispanic country and whites will become a smaller and smaller minority group as time goes by. I don't know why that angers you but clearly it does.

    I'm also really not sure what you countered. I discussed our changing demographics and you shrieked "RACISM!" as loud as you could while insisting no black man will ever win election because Barack Obama, or something to that effect.

Obama isn't much different than Johnson in that respect, except that I think Johnson was more secretive about it.
    If your allegations about Obama are true, that is a personality issue, not someone's race

    No. White males still make up the overwhelming majority of people who are actually liable to run for the position.

    You think Latinos only got for Latinos, and women only vote for women?

    Minorities tend to vote democrat. if Joe Biden is the blue candidate in 2016, they'll largely vote for him. And if the GOP doesn't get their **** together with their treatment of minorities, Democrats are going to keep the White House for a while.

    Here's how stupid the question is. 100% of DPers have said no. This is literally unprecedented. From the literal communists to the Christian fundamentalists, everyone here agrees. When you ask the question "should poor people be allowed to vote," your response isn't unanimous because there's always a couple crazies. But this question, the entire political spectrum agrees.

    I've been watching Obama use race for political gain. It doesn't bother him a bit, he did it in Chicago and he'll do it in Washington.

    No. We'll likely see more.

    I know a lot of women who voted for Hillary in the NH primary in 2008 because she is a woman. Lots of blacks voted for Obama because his father was black.

    In 2012 blacks outvoted whites for the first time ever. Women are voting more and the bloc is increasing eac year.

    His question was actually a valid one when you consider the results of the last few elections and the difference in demographics.
    But the OP's question was 'will whites be president again' which is just silly.

    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.

    Of course I don't think women will only vote for women. Everyone keeps saying the same thing and I keep saying of course not. That's probably why 100% of the people have said no.

    Why is it silly?

    Why don't you start compiling a list of every world leader democratically elected, without force, that belongs to a country's minority group? Unless you're telling me white people only elect white people, black people only elect black people, and so on this should be a very long list.
