If there is anything approaching an iron law of American politics, it's this: The next president will be a member of the same race as the current one. It's a rule that has held through 42 of 43 transfers of power. And there's every reason to think it will hold through the next one.

Knife, boat, Africa.
Hmmmmmmmmm. Let's see -- she's pretty leftwing. She's got ties to George W Bush (and everybody likes the Bush dynasty, right?) and she's a supporter of homosexuals ...
Yes. I guess she IS the most obvious choice for the next GOP nominee ...
What about Jaimie Foxx following the footsteps of his Lord and Savior?
I doubt it. Oboma has set race relations back decades. There's never been so many racist accusations sine Oboma got his affermative action presidency.
I think people have had enough of this "vote for their color" crap. This country is in real trouble, and people really need to get the adults back in charge.
I have no preference for the color or melanin level of the next president,
as long as s/he’s a strict constitutional constructionist.
After 2 terms of the same party the mushy middle is generally sick of them, that’s why the sitting VPs usually lose. So unless the GOP completely spike it with a terrible nominee the next dem candidate will lose. Of course given the quality of GOP nominees lately there’s a distinct possibility of them spiking it.
Either he is an American or an illegimate president.
I hope this guy doesn't gamble or invest.
It may be a while before we see another president. Should Obama want to run for a third term, the Roberts Court will dutifully interpret the 22nd Amendment in a way that allows him to do so, and the GOP will, as usual, choose an unelectable has-been or never-will-be as its nominee.
I don’t care if he is purple with polka dots....as long as he is a true conservative who loves America.
Does the color of a president’s skin really matter?
And he is NOT African American.
What are you talking about? He was born in Kenya, don'tcha know?
Given this logic, I think this is a tongue in cheek article.
Who cares what color he is, if he’s Conservative and LOVES America
Maybe there should be a requirement that they be white male descendants of western europeans?
Biggest reason not mentioned: any criticism of a black candidate can be tagged as RACIST. Provided that candidate is not a conservative black person, in which case viciously racist attacks are perfectly OK.
Oh, heck—let’s just give it to one of the Globetrotters. They’re already good at being professional clowns. And they’d probably do a better job since they are actually used to working for money.
I don’t know if the next President will be black, but they definitely will NOT be a white male. George W. Bush was the last white male President this country will ever have.
There. I corrected the headline for grammar and punctuation.
Welcome to the Peron/Argentina era of politics in America.
American politics: appeal to the visceral racism of blacks by putting up a black candidate and then give out free stuff to solidify their enthusiastic support. Since the free cell phone bribe was already done by the dems, I guess the GOP will need to up the ante and provide free cars with free gas!
This will not end pretty.
Why The Next President Will Probably Be Black Too
I’m one of many who believe there will not be another white male elected president. Unless he’s gay.
Tokenism has captured the heart and soul of libs and gerbalists.
Actually, I saw him in a picture the other day somewhere standing with Obama....a younger black man, shaved head and probably same mixed race as Obama. He’s running for Senate or something....but no mistake, he’s their pick for 2016 - Biden is gone, Hillary is gone...
Ok I will go ahead and say it..... TIM SCOTT for President 2016! LOL
George W. Bush was a mulatto—Who knew?
Actually, the Democrat strategy will likely be to run a woman, or an Hispanic, or an Hispanic woman, and cash in on the cachet associated with “minority” candidates.
Not even the demonrats will allow this. The experiment is over, and they know it- hence the desperation and dictatorship.
Is that really the same thing?
Thank god! That means it won’t be Hillary.
The marxist Axelrod made sure the BEST black candidate, Herman Cain, was branded with the number one fear of whites— the black man with a white female.
Classic communist tactic (and if true then Herman and his wife should have known better, that is— if she knew in the first place) to drive wedge in the ‘working classes’ and they’ve been doing it since the 50’s.
So, again NO the democrats will not allow it and the republicans would not be able to manage it.
After 8 years of Obama failing the black community, there will be diminished energy by Eric Holder’s “people” to turn out the vote in 2016.
Like a lot of people I am just tired of everything revolving around skin color or sex. Its just so meaningless! It indicates absolutely nothing about a person's ability to do a job.
Mitt promised it's MY turn, next, dammit!
After all, black leadership has done so much for America, American cities and foreign countries.
By 2016 Barack Obama will have brought true equality to most of America.
When he gets done the entire country will be nothing but a huge replica of Detroit or Zimbabwe.
Why? It’s has been well documented at this stage of the game America does not need the Executive branch of Government.
All are failures. Why waste the time and money for employees that are on constant vacation?
Just pick some guy and give him AF 1 and say go live a wonderful life! Here is billion dollars, a map of all the best golf courses played by your predecessor and take your kids and wife to Disney!
The next, if there is a next, will most likely have brown skin as in middle eastern.
Eh. When Abe Beame was elected Mayor of NYC back in the day my mother said “There’s never been a Jewish mayor before, now they’ll all be Jewish”. She was wrong.
RE: After 8 years of Obama failing the black community, there will be diminished energy by Eric Holders people to turn out the vote in 2016.
I heard something similar said in 2012. Only the remark was “After 4 years of Obama failing blacks”.
It’s a shame Thomas Sowell will be 86. He would have my vote if he was younger!
RE: Thank god! That means it wont be Hillary.
Who’s to say it won’t be Michelle?
And you thought Idiocracy was just a fictional movie.
That’s because it was the personality cult of Obama that dragged him over the finish line ahead of Vanilla Mitt...
...’scholorships, jobs and promotions’...those aren’t things that are voted on by the public.
Actually Baraq has been great for the black community.
We’re handing out EBT, unemployment, section 8 housing, medicaid, Obamaphones, etc like never before.
Ha, some people -- some white people -- have. But from what I've seen lately from actors and columnists and polls and the "where my free phone at?" crowd, it's race first and foremost from here on out.
Gawd imagine Barkley's golfing trips as Prez, make that pay-per-view and that will pay off the deficit.
"Wrong" by one in what, forty years? Mama's doing pretty good so far.
