A (probably) fruitless effort that needs to be made

Former Ohio Secretary of State Ken Blackwell has some advice for Sen. McCain if he plans on stopping the 10% of African-Americans who voted for President Bush in 2004 from embracing their inner hopenchanginess.  (There's a run-on sentence for you to diagram.) 

The whole article is worth a read, but Blackwell left out something that I think should be very important to minority communities: the death tax.  Minority-owned small businesses have been on the rise for years.  When the death tax goes back to a 55% rate in 2010, will a President Obama object?  Of course not.  He plans on reinstating the death tax while McCain (umm...as of this election season) wants to kill it. 

I think that is something that Sen. McCain should definitely bring up when he speaks before the NAACP Convention next week.   


Update:  When I was interning in DC, I shared office space with the folks at the American Family Business Institute, whos sole purpose is the elimination of the death tax.  They're great people and do great work.  Go check them out.
