Obama is unique. I wouldn't count on our being able to find his Canadian equivalent.

Who cares what colour, race or w/e they are? In all honesty all you people who are concerned about such things shouldn't be allowed to vote. A leader should be voted for by how efficient and effective you think their plans, ideas and promises will be and nothing more.

What a ridiculous statement. Just because the current Prime Minister is white and useless (in your opinion) it does not mean that only a black Prime Minister will be better or that you really need, quite specifically, a black Prime Minister.

No, not at all. I just thought the quote was interesting since we were on the subject of power behind the scenes.

Right, and a lot of those "plans, ideas, and promises" have to do with race issues. Like it or not, people still focus on race. A lot.
Therefore, it is a subject necessary to be addressed by the president, whose race is also quite a bit focused on.
We hear lots of bad things on WP and elsewhere about "white" people, often by the very same people asking us to stop focusing on race.

Your right, the issue of race does comes up alot more often in American politics than it does in British Politics. In fairness Ethnic minorities only consist of 8% of the population of the entire United Kingdom (a bit less actually 4.0% South Asian, 2.0% Black, 1.2% Mixed Race, 0.4% East Asian, 0.4% other) so it doesn't come up much aside from the odd paranoid BNP supporter who believe this 8% is proof that "we're being overrun".

But nether the less, My original post was on the subject of "when will Britain get its first black PM" so why you've decided to bring in American issues that don't apply to anything that i said ill never know :roll:
