3. looking forward to it

All of the presidential contenders have done nothing except mouth platitudes on the issue of race, and the republicans haven't even done that. The Dems have operated for years on the basis that all they had to do was keep a few aging preachermen on side. I dare say in this post Obama environment that black people aren't going to settle for that any more.

To be honest, though, when candidates say that they are adjusting their strategies, it usually means that they're simply taking steps to avoid getting sandbagged in the first place.
