Politics in Words

Politics today avoid "words" that have dual meaning. However, in Decision 2008, there are words that are avoided: race, gender...however, these words, rather than help, actually hinder the process. Words need to be pronounced and then exploained. Race is evident in this election when 90% of African-Americans vote for the black candidate or a large % of women vote for the female candidate. Let's be frank and not avoid the obvious. Words can be used (if explained) to support that which breaks into racial and gender camps.
