Talking to my son and DIL, who is a flaming Liberal that is Left of HuffPO and Moveon, I asked them how they felt about Obama. DIL refused to discuss politics but son said he would find it hard to vote for Obama again because he was so disappointed about O's first term.
I pointed out to him that he thought he was electing a Saint while in reality he was electing a politician.
He reluctantly agreed with me. DIL sat quietly.

Mine is better than that. My wife was at the gym. She was working out with a group of other women. These were women who always spoke politics to each other.
As they were talking about politics, my wife mentioned the Obama 2016 film and how she could never vote for Obama, the other women defended Obama as they always had.
Then my wife mentioned the interview with Obama's brother.

The other women were totally shocked. They all looked at my wife and said OMG, we could never support this man. We simply did not know. I mean we are white and we didn't know he was black

My wife came home, and she jumped into my arms and gave me a big hug and kiss and said. I told more white people that Obama is black and they are now voting for Romney. She was so happy.
