16. Agreed. I have always argued on this board that the "afirmative action" variable
is a valid factor to consider in the mix when deciding who to support for President. There is a social good advanced by electing either our first African American or Female President. But this piece by Herbert wasn't cimply a celebration of a pending civil rights advance in either instance, it cast two competing camps; and one definately wore white hats and the other one black.
