Are we Ready?

• 03 April 2008

On a radio talk-show last week I heard the host ask the audience, "Are we ready for a black president?" and "Are we ready for a female president?". Hmmm...I wish we didn't need to ask to ask those types of questions. I don't care if my president is African-American, a woman or LDS (a.k.a. Mormon) These descriptives should not matter or cause us to weigh our vote one way or another. Voting for a presidential (or any for that matter) candidate should be based on his or her values, ideas, agendas, and most importantly, character. Perhaps this is idyllic to think in such a way but it would be oh-so-nice if we didn't obsess over a candidate's skin color, sex or faith.
