I like to watch Washington Journal on C-SPAN in the mornings before I head to the train--I always have a lot to think about as a result. The discussion this morning is supposed to be about Obama's transition team and what viewers expect from the Obama administration, but all the Republicans can seem to talk about is how Obama won because he was black.
Who knew being black was such a plus in electoral politics? I mean, there's so many examples of successful African-American presidents in our history, compared to all those white guys.
Go ahead Republicans--keep finding reasons other than those relating to your ideology for why you lost. Democrats did that for nearly a generation--it was always someone else's fault. It wasn't until we did a better job of arguing our agenda and proving it would work that we started winning again.
