    I have no problem (speaking as  non-white) to run White candidates to get the racist vote, if that person is a liberal. Hence, I'm very much behind Hillary for 2016 if she's healthy and willing ...

    Kind of a mirror image of the Republican plan to run Marco Rubio because he's a Mexicuban Latino teabagger.

      lesson of the 2012 national election. the GOP, by virtue of its 40 decade long "Southern Campaign", to gather under one umbrella, all the disaffected bigots of the old south. those who mightily disagree with integration, both institiutonally, and socially. the GOP became the bulwark against change, and  change itself became the enemy. and that pretty much sums up the romney/ryan campaign strategy.

      it also sums up, in a nutshell, the massive problem the GOP faces, if it wishes to continue being relevent in the future, at present, it doesn't appear to want to make those changes.

        They do not want to change and they cling to their bigotry and racism.  Republican candidates often cater to the bigots and haters and the angry white guy.
