In most presidential elections there are several types of candidates. There is the well connected candidate with the blessing of smoke filled room set. There is the charismatic type who relies personality and physical appeal. There is the resume candidate who has done pretty much every job BUT President and is obviously qualified for the job.
Look at the Democratic Party today. The candidate that seems tapped by the smoked filled room is a woman. The charismatic candidate with the rock star image is a black man. Finally, the resume candidate who's worked in many important jobs and is the most qualified is Latino.
Of the top four candidates only John Edwards is a white man.
Food for thought.
