It may well be that we will have a black male chief justice of the Supreme Court, a black female Secretary of State, and a hispanic Attorney General. And the Democrats will oppose all three.
I do not offer this in any way, shape or form as a criticism or attempt to start some sort of political squabble, because to the contrary, I find to be able to make those statements to be a real positive.
Maybe I just have this warped view of America that perhaps we have made some progress since John Jay, Thomas Jefferson, and Edmund Randolph. That perhaps through the peculiar system of American government and politics we all love to attack and criticize, we manage to not only survive, but move forward. That in putting our warts out front for all to see, we sometimes mask our strengths not only to the rest of the world, but to ourselves.
I know the Alley is here for criticizing and complaining, so have at me for being a polyanna.
