    So, there are wingnuts that will not be satisfied, no matter who or what is done.

    But "the system" does not consider the Congressional Black Caucus or any of its members to be "wingnuts." They're squarely inside respectable opinion. In order to be a "wingnut," you have to be white!

    "Complaint: Not Enough Blacks in Obama Cabinet"



    LOL oh man, what a headline!

    What bull shit!

    Hmmm ........... Since Obama is half black, then he counts as five token blacks!

    There it's solved.

    Black, white, green, purple, let the guy pick his team based on what is important to him and let us judge them on their past achievements and their future endeavors.

    This is ridiculous! Obama has a plate full, important issues!

    And lets not forget Hillary, she is the wife of our first Black president, so that should count for something!

    William is on his crying jag again. "Poor little white me, I am being trod upon by all these 'other' colors".

    Democracy rests on constituents demanding representation, I would guess there are other headlines elsewhere demanding more representation for other groups (greens, republicans, whatever....)

    -I think it's important for the country, for people to speak up.

    Well frankly it is childish for the black caucus to even bring this up or make such claims. So it's on them and no one else, they own this one!
