Alabama Democratic Conference and Backwards Thinking

When Joe Reed, a leader in the Alabama Democratic Conference said America was more ready to vote for a white woman than a black man he was wrong! Obama won and Hilary supported him. His position demonstrated that he was out of touch with the wants of the people. If others had thought the same way he did - race based instead of issues based, then America would have taken a great step backwards. We need a leadership that is willing to set the example and lead the charge by making political decisions that are no longer race or sex based. Unfortunately, the Alabama Democratic Conference with the direction of it leadership, Joe Reed, could not rise above that challenge. Alabama needs a new breed of representation that is proactive and progressive when it comes to political decision making. One must practice what one preaches and not judge by skin color.
