“Mr. Paterson, who supported Senator Clinton throughout her campaign and was a Clinton super-delegate before endorsing Mr. Obama after Mrs. Clinton conceded, cast the presidential race in stark racial terms, saying its outcome would decide whether the nation could finally move beyond its legacy of slavery and segregation.”

Does anyone else think that it is funny that Mr. Paterson voted against Obama untill Hillary left the race, then claims racisim if Obama is not elected president?
“Can America go past the crippling way that we’ve shot ourselves in the foot over and over, denying opportunity to people who are bright, to people who are qualified, to people who are able because they didn’t look like us, or they didn’t come from where we came from, or they are from a different gender, or they are from the African continent? Can America push that away and find new leadership? We’ll find out in the next few months what America can do.”
Well, he voted for someone who didn’t look like him. He voted for someone who came from a different place than he came from. He voted for someone of a different Gender. Hillary isn’t from Africa “as far as I know”.
So why do I have to Vote for Obama, just to prove I’m not racist? I reject this idea completely.
