In a way, we had a choice between a black President and a female Vice President, and chose the black man. In a way, history has repeated itself. Once upon a time, we had a choice of extending the vote to all citizens or just to emancipated black men, and we chose the latter. In that case, it is arguably because the the pluralistic view would not have passed. In this case, it is arguably because the black man will be able or willing to do more for the cause of gender equality than the woman would have. And, like the first choice, this one will be argued for decades to come. Let's hope that next time the choice is given, that one will be a competent, inclusive, and capable black woman. I'd vote for her, too.
