While today is an historic day with the first viable Black Presidential candidate clinching the Democratic Party's nomination, I can't help but wonder if there isn't a hint of sexism in this historic victory. I am an Obama supporter but I support him because of his position on issues and his lack of machine mentality. I can't help but wonder, though, if some of his supporters do so because they would rather a man in the white house than a woman. It's just a sneaking suspicion, not a hunch or even a hypothesis, just that leery feeling in the back of your mind that you can't shake. Certainly I am hopeful that I am wrong just as I am hopeful that Clinton's supporters were not doing so simply because they wanted a woman in the white house, but rather because they agree with her position on issues. Yes, I'm happy that Obama will be the democratic nominee, and I am confident that he can beat McCain in November (with or without Clinton as his VP.) But again, its just a creepy crawly feeling on the back of my neck that says, look how far we've come, yet look how far we still have to go.
