Obama wasn't white.Yes, the argument that person x should not run because the Rs will say whatever (or whatever name) about them is pointless. The Rs will say something about anyone who runs against them, no matter how much you prove it to be untrue. Does that mean nobody should run against them? Or that only white men (with the minimum possible 'othering' in their past) can be chosen?
I don't know why that didn't start sharing him earlier; maybe they assumed his being black was enough to guarantee their victory. And what they did come up with was just weak. Northridge was the strongest thing they had, and it was too ridiculous to work, even though the cultists still believe it.
The Dems need someone who can energize the most people like he did and also be a hard target, no matter what their gender or ethnicity.
