when one group (Blacks) vote based on race, and others do not that group has a huge advantage.

Blacks make up 35% of Democratic voters, so I can see that after Obama it will be another black or a Hispanic.

and the Republicans will just keep nominating McCains and Palins.

I don't see such a scenario being plausible.

I like Obama better than Hillary but Obama would never had beaten her if he was white. That base in the Democratic primaries is just so significant, and it will grow as now its realistic for a black to run for anything. So black State Senators and congressmen will now run for governor and US senate much more than in the past, and they will win primaries.

and the Republican candidates will increasingly be from the religious base. The remaining Republican senators in Ohio, Penn, Maine (Snow), Kentucky (Bunning), Indiana are OLD and when they die those seats are gone. New York and New England (except Maine) are already gone. Arnold will be replaced by a Democrat.
