Chris Matthews: I Voted For Michael Steele Because He's Black
CHRIS MATTHEWS: "The good thing going for Cory Booker, if he's the candidate, Steve, is that we don't have any African Americans in the United States Senate, which I think is a disgrace. You know, it's one of the reasons I voted for my friend Michael Steele when he ran because I think we ought to have some. It's absurd in this country, it's absurd, Steve."I wonder how close he came to saying "of those people."?
When I look at a candidate I'm looking for things like good ideas, leadership ability, has he/she accomplished anything, what are his/her values, is he/she an elitist prick or grounded in reality and can relate to his/her constituents?
These are the things I look for in a candidate.
Now if I were a liberal/progressive this is where I would add some condescending little line like, "I don't care if he/she is green,purple or black!!!"
But I'm not.
What I do care about is if he/she is a liberal/progressive.
Those I won't vote for.
