6. Barack Obama had one big thing going for him

He was the first major party nominee who was a person of color, and a lot of white America thought that by voting for him over the lackluster McCain or Romney, that they might relieve themselves of their responsibility for what we call white privilege. It didn't work, and they won't be in any mood to do that again.
