    Conservatives and Republicans don't like electing blacks.

    You can invent any excuse you want -- history speaks louder than excuses.
    It usually helps when we know more about each candidates' situation, and not excuses which you keep providing.

    I dont know the political races you have followed where a superior candidate was not elected simply because he or she was black. But I can point to an awful lot that WERE who's only qualification is their skin color. And you can start in the White House.
    i would say that was a bit much. president obama was remarkably under expierienced compared to his opposition....and many did vote for him simply because of his skin color. but, he is a very intelligent and capable man. to say that his skin color is his only qualification is simply not appropriate.

    Really? Other than he gives good speech...what exactly put him in even the POSITION to be a presidential candidate other than his skin color? He is a failed community organizer, was gifted a speech making job at college, voted 'present' more time than yes or no as a state legislator and served all of...what...4 years as a senator? I dont know...I dont buy it. If he wasnt a 'clean well spoken black man' he would have no less credentials to run for president than many on this blog.

    Obamae just comes off as impressive and likable and smart. I, a lot can just tell if that is someone I trust or not. I just feel it. Look at how I have jumped on the Trump bandwagon. Karl Rove says he's not serious. Somebody told me he has 3 bankruptcies. But I don't care. That's my guy. I can just tell.

    He gives good teleprompter. Hell he doesnt even write his own material-he had a Hollywood screenwriter writing his campaign speeches. He is a puppet...an actor that mouths other peoples words. He looks like a bigger doofus than Bush when he has to answer in depth questions without a script. He was elected for one reason and one reason alone. His skin color. Hillarty was a vastly superior candidate and has proven so by her handling of the conflicts in the middle east. Obama was elected because black folks had a black candidate (any candidate-they didnt know him or his policies as proven by the many pre-election interviews) to vote for. Liberals could vote for him and show how colorblind they were...tragic when in fact the only they voted for him WAS color. Some whites voted for him so they could say...fine...he cant be any worse than McCain and at least we can put this whole black and white thing behind us.

    And I completely believe that. I also believe that for the most part, Conservatives don't view many blacks as competent as whites; hence, they've elected only 6 out of the last 26,000 Congressional races. Accepting your premise, and I do, I narrow it down to one of two things: either blacks who run are not as competent as whites, therefore Conservatives don't elect many blacks, or blacks are at least as competent as whites, but Conservatives don't view them as such.

    Suffice it to say, I don't believe the former is true.
