14. Because that is what people are proposing in this case
That looks/color/etc matter more than whether or not the most qualified person gets the job.

And in some sense the article is correct - we have so many different groups in our tent and each one thinks that someone from their group has to be represented, versus having someone who represents the entire group on it's liberal principles.

Instead of focusing on our core goals and ideals people can get lost in a subset of them - ie, they represent more something inside the tent than the tent itself.
