The Ethnic Presidency: How Race Decides the Race to the White House is an explosive look at how racial and ethnic conflict has openly and covertly played a crucial role the past three decades in influencing, shaping and ultimately deciding who bags the world’s biggest political prize, the White House. It tells how racial politics will play an even bigger role in the 2008 presidential election and future elections.It examines Obamamania, the Hillary and Bill factor, the soaring Latino vote, the silent but potent Asian-American vote, the immigration wars, the GOP’s love-hate relationship with black and Latino America, and Bush’s effort to recast the GOP from a clubby, ole white guys party to a party of racial diversity. The first primary is January 29.Here is a sampling of questions The Ethnic Presidency asks and answers:
Will America accept a black president? Can Obama be that president?
Will America accept a woman president? Can Hillary be that president?
Will America accept a Latino president? Can Bill Richardson be that president?
Will America accept a Mormon president? Can Mitt Romney be that president?
How the GOP played the Southern Strategy through Presidents Nixon, Reagan, Bush Sr. and Bush Jr. to repeatedly win the White House. Can and will they abandon it in 2008?
Did blacks and Latinos elect Bush?
Have the Democrats taken the black and Latino vote for granted?
Why have Presidential candidates other than John Edwards avoided making poverty an issue?
Why immigration will be a stealth factor in the 2008 campaign. And did it help or hurt John McCain?
Will Rudolph Giuliani’s contentious relations with blacks as New York mayor hurt or help his White House bid?
