    I am interested in your opinion as to whether an Asian, female or Hispanic has a better chance of becoming POTUS before another Afro-American?

    It is my opinion that Obama has not only ruined the chance of a black man being elected to POTUS in the next fifty-years, but that one of the three named above have a better chance of being elected to the WH before another black man.

    So, what do you think?????

    I do not care what color the next one is. Character, qualification, and policy are more important.

    Ben Carson's making some noise in the GOP ranks. I'd vote for him in a heartbeat.

    No gender, race, or ethnicity has any particular advantage. Hopefully, we as a nation are past looking at people through these lenses. You should be ashamed for posting this.

    I agree. Anyone could be elected. And that is good. America is not going to reject all blacks just because this president has been so poor.

    His poor record will have NO impact on what 'race,' gender, or nationality will be elected in the future.

    Hillary will be elected. the corruption during voting combined with the ignorance of Americans will guarantee this. Just look at the voting fraud last election. With a few more million illegals voting its a shoe in.

    That could very well be true - but is not because the president is black.

    Hillary's book flopped, big time. Her "shoe-in" status just MIGHT be over exaggerated.

    RD2, yer better than tis tripe. At least I hope.

    I really don't see how Obama's being bi-racial would affect the average American's choosing or not choosing another dark skinned person for president.

    It isn't his skin tone that objectionable.

    It is very early, but based on what I know of Ben Carson, I like him. Admit that I need to learn much more though.

    No, "making history" was the in thing in 2008 with young people. Making history 2.0 will be oh so exciting for these same ignoramuses.

    Hillary will win. It would be sexist to talk about how incompetent, old, and ill she is.

    I am, but....

    ..... I had to ask if Obama set the future of a black person running for POTUS, back, I think is a reasonable question! I am not looking through a lens at color when it comes to leadership of US, in fact I'd love to see Condi Rice run with Sarah Palin as her running mate!

    I think America could accomplish a lot of great thing with her at the helm, foreign policy wise, so that should so I am not preaching tripe! Thanks for you kind words!

    Yeah, well it kind of read like you have no faith that American people can see past race. Kind of what I fight Crabtownboy on a daily basis. And my words were not kind, and you ain't preaching'.

    The media won't let race, gender, and s3xuality go. I heard the "newscasters" at NPR fawning over Obama's appointment of "The First Openly-G4y African-American Male" as a Federal Judge in Florida. They won't let it go. History will be overly-kind to Mr. Obama unfortunately. I wonder how long until the make a movie about his life? The leftist media worships him like nobody else I've seen in my lifetime. I really think Hillary will win a third term as President in 2016 because the sheeple are that darn dumb to vote her in. And if pandering to fringe groups won't work, then the dead shall rise from their graves and vote Democrat as always.
