What state is Governor Henry from?

I don't think Sanford is as invincible as you guys are making him out to be. I support the man, and I think he'd make a good president, but it's not as if he's a lock to carry 40 states or anything, heh.

Appointing a black person to your cabinet is not affirmative action. Appointing a black person because he's black is affirmative action.

The population is divided on Bush, but for what, a year and a half?

It's political gerrymandering, not racial gerrymandering. The fact that blacks happen to virtually all be Democrats makes the two look similar, when in reality, they're not.

I thought you were saying the Republicans did it, which would be for political purposes. Not racially motivated ones.

That's like saying firing a black guy for doing a lousy job is racist, because black people do lousy jobs.

No offense, but what the hell are you talking about?

Racial and business motivations are the same in this sitution, according to your logic.

The political implications were the same as the political ones...

Erm, okay...I guess I can't argue with that... Smiley
