What about other groups? If the idea of a Latino or a Muslim in the White House is beyond belief, what does that say of American society?

If the US is the most progressive nation in these matters, what are the implications for western democracies? Is the idea of people being judged on merit, by the content of their character rather than on characteristics like race and religion just an illusion? >>>>>
