I watched the Harry Reid controversy play out, knowing that it would end up ok for Senator Reid. He is a good man with a good heart. Democrats and most African American leaders, including President Obama, quickly accepted Senator Reid’s apology for his statement to authors of the book, “Game Change,” that inferred then Senator Obama was more electable because he was as a “light-skinned Negro” without a “dialect.” They did so because Senator Reid has a long-standing record of supporting civil rights, affirmative action, and social spending programs particularly aimed at assisting the poor and people of color.
