when they know the answer, because he is black. cokie roberts says that Hawaii is too "exotic" a place for him to vacation. What is "exotic"-code word for brown/black/not like the white establishment. all that we can do is vote, get out the vote, educate all that we know and can have reasonable conversations with, and trust Barack to continue to do what he has done which is run a fantastic campaign and show himself to be the true statesman and intelligent leader that he is.

the rest? we'll just have to wait and see.
