In Huckleberry Finn, Mark Twain wrote about a black lawyer from the free state of Illinois, well dressed and riding a horse. Pa Finn was outraged; how could a black man have a horse when he didn’t?
Did President Obama, a careful, competent President raise the same feelings of outrage in some of us? Did a black man as President make the election of a white supremacist possible, even inevitable?
What about a President who is a woman, would her administration, however well run, be followed inevitably by a misogynist?
