Have people told you they will not vote for Obama because of his race?

My husband and I lived in Bali, Indonesia several years ago. A hotel manager there said he would never hire a short person to work as a desk clerk. The reason: guests approaching the counter would not be able to see a short person! Also, tall people (in his mind) were better at solving problems!

The point of this story is similar to electing a political candidate for a reason having nothing to do with skill or job management. What does the political party represent? How will this elected person choose individuals to get the jobs done? No candidate can fulfill campaign promises unilaterally. So please be a thinker in your choice when voting!
