The end of affirmative action?

I would love to ask this question.

“Senator Obama, your election would be an historic landmark in racial progress. I can’t imagine a clearer signal that the proverbial playing field has been leveled than an African American being elected as President of the United States. With that in mind, do you have plans to roll back affirmative action programs?”

As much as I would like to ask it, it’s a far too easy question to evade. He would just say, “Certainly we’ve made progress, but there’s so much more to make.”
