This White House Is Missing
The Obama White House is too white.
But unlike Bill Clinton, who never needed help fathoming Southern black culture, Obama lacks advisers who are descended
from the central African-American experience, ones who understand "the slave thing," as a top black Democrat dryly puts it...
The president appears completely comfortable in his own skin, but it seems he feels that he and Michelle are such a huge
change for the nation to absorb that he can be overly cautious about pushing for other societal changes for blacks and gays.
At some level, he acts like the election was enough; he shouldn’t have to deal with race further. But he does...
The president shouldn’t give Sherrod her old job back. He should give her a new job: Director of Black Outreach.
This White House needs one.
Maureen, please stop saying anything nice about Bill Clinton.
You and half of the pundit-whores in DC made your career screaming "rapist" at him,
so please, stay on the Republican's side - we don't want you.
