Race and gender need to become irrelevant - and weren't Barack's Kansas parents "hard working" and "white"? It is amazing how a bit of color and an unusual name trigger the "other" response in the small-minded. I guess many of us grew up with it, but it's time to stop. Blogs blither on today about swing states and who can win Ohio, Pennsylvania and Florida and the contest is over.

It's time for the new model - voter registration in all fifty states. Enfranchisement. New civil rights movement color blind and unified.
