Of course not. He voted against Condoleezza Rice when Bush nominated her to become the first black female Secretary of State.
And the Left treated both her gender and her color with disdain for the simple reason that she was a Republican serving in a Republican administration. That’s as it should be. Anybody who can’t handle that kind of heat doesn’t belong in public office.

Charles C.W. Cooke makes the excellent point that, “If we follow Dick Durbin’s model, however, and we demand extraordinary treatment for people who are more than capable of standing on their own two feet, we will run the risk that the public will throw up its hands in frustration and mutter under its breath, ‘Enough with all this vitriol, next time we’ll take the boring white guy instead’. Which one is the ‘progressive’, again?”
