Not only is the first black president part of Bush's legacy, so is the fact that his middle name is Hussein, after that Iraq war and all. Thought that was pretty funny/ironic at the time.
Bush got re-elected, so can Obama. If Obama screws the pooch in his second term, things will just spring back and allow some real out of the box candidates have a chance, like a Cuban-American Rubio or the Indian-American from Louisiana, or a NJ social liberal. Guess by the end of the week we'll also see what them Dems are thinking in this arena. Is Hillary still considering it? Hope not Biden. With the recent talk of GOP 2016, just being curious about the dems.
