African-American members of Congress – and even President Obama – say it’s time to move past Sen. Majority Leader Harry Reid’s ill-advised choice of words in describing Obama during the 2008 campaign. Everybody, that is, except the Republican Party.
In fact, say a number of leading Republicans, Reid should resign, despite apologizing for his remark that Obama being “light-skinned” and lacking a “Negro dialect” would prove to be advantages for him in that election. The comment was made public in a book, titled "Game Change," which goes on sale Monday.
