Nabb1: I, personally, will not be satisfied until the Cabinet has it's first Lesbian left-handed midget albino eskimo appointee.
HighOnCraic: [www.mainjustice.com image 300x414]He was great on "Barney Miller."
Lionel Mandrake: You know, I'm all for government "looking like America," but there always a chance of over- or underrepresentation. Looking back over the past four years, I think what's "embarrassing than hell" is people trying to paint Obama as some kind diversity-opposer. Everyone knows it's a crock.
Frank N Stein: The notion of diversity in this country has become little more than a political tool. It's simply bargaining chip that can be trotted out to appease, strong arm, or divert attention to the "proper" channel, depending upon the situation. What diversity is not, I've come to realize, is an organically developed realization and application of letting people merely "be". The idea of diversity as a strength breaks down when politics realizes the advantage of grabbing hold of this concept like a leech and begins using it to its advantage. No amount of politically induced racial quotas, grandstanding, and inquisitions will ever allow for flourish of true diversity, one in which the dividing lines between individuals (be it race, gender, sexual orientation, creed etc...) is not a factor. In fact, those political leeches have it in their best interest to keep the question about diversity convoluted and divisive as possible, because its become one of their most effective tools.And that's my rant.

A Dark Evil Omen: I always like it when rightists try to throw complaints like this back at the center and left, because it's always so very, very ridiculous.
Uranus Is Huge!: Obama has a "diverse cabinet": OMG! Affirmative Action!Obama has "bunch of whitey" on his cabinet: Whar diversity? Whar?
Diogenes: You know, there are only so many positions in the cabinet. And maybe we should look at the totality of Obama's inclusiveness over his time in office instead of pissing and moaning and asking "What have you done for me lately, Obama?".
