This is apparently the Orwellian Democratic message to the white male:
If you’re African-American, then it’s OK that you express racial solidarity and vote for Sen. Obama by margins approaching 90 percent — while at the same time white males must prove that they are not racialists by having the courage to ‘do the right thing’ by likewise voting for an African-American. That apparently would make Michelle Obama proud of her country for the first time in her life.
If you vote for Hillary, likewise you transcend your gender and do the right thing — and so join the legion of feminists for whom her shared womanhood was their signature issue.
But if you were to vote for John McCain? You would, of course, reveal a tribal mentality by forgoing principle and obviously allying yourself along comfortable racial and gender lines.
