Between Mr. Steele, Condoleeza Rice, Colin Powell, and any other number of successful black politicians, I guess the lesson here is that apparently Democrats are all for more black politicians, but only as long as they are Democrats and NOT Republicans. These people ought to be ashamed of themselves. They just can't look at people without considering their race first. "If you're black, you've gotta be a Democrat... if you're NOT, there must be something hideously wrong with you."
