The True Rainbow Coalition...





Much noise has been made about the fact that the Republican Party has recently elected Michael Steele, an alleged African-American as its leader. This is pretty big deal for a party
that attracts very few non-white voters and hasn't had an African-American in Congress for some years now.

The Democrats, on the other hand, draw their support from a wide spectrum of Americans. A term that Jesse Jackson popularized was "Rainbow Coalition" describing an appeal to Americans: white, black, brown, yellow or red.  There is one hue though, that the Republicans are taking a lead in, ORANGE

While I cannot think of a single Orange-American in the Democratic caucus, the Republicans have elected one, John Boehner, as their House Leader.  Governor of Florida and potential Presidential candidate Charlie Crist is also an Orange-American

I implore the Democratic leadership not to dismiss this as empty symbolism and to reach out to Orange-Americans in all future elections.



The Future of the GOP?
