    I have given a lot of thought to race and gender in this "race" to power. I don't like your implication here. Making false charges of racism (against me) is just as dangerous and weakens any real charge of racial bias and any real opportunity for change. I stand by my diary and my interpretation of Ferraro's comments in this context.

    The MSM has made similar statements regarding Obama and actually done a good job of discussing the historical firsts and how CW is thrown out the window. I think Team Obama and supporters have had a knee jerk reaction because of Ferraro's association with the Clinton campaign.

    I have heard charges here that Ferraro has had a history of making "misstatements" like this regarding black men. That changes the context and I will look in to it.
