Various voting blocs/interest groups/constituencies await with 'bated breath the election of the first black, hispanic, and/or female President.
Although a truly color- and gender-blind society should not get overly excited about such an eventuality, in light of reality, I pose the following question:
If the first such example(s) evince a conservative rather than a liberal ideology, would this signal enlightenment or regression?
Something else, perhaps?
Please expand on your answer.
