    Did Bush ruin the presidency for white dudes?

    Let's see:

    2008: Obama
    2012: Obama
    2016: Hillary
    2020: Hillary
    2024: George P. Bush (Jeb's Mexican son, pictured below).

    (The last Republican to win the White House without a Bush or Nixon on the ticket was Herbert Hoover in 1928, so the Republicans need to run a Bush to win. Unless they can find a Nixon.)

    I was just talking to my dad about it this morning. I told him it is highly probable he will not see another white male president.

    i dont think so: if a white candidate lies, steals, cheats, and resorts to political grandstanding voters are turned off. if a minority candidate does all these things, he is called the next Jesse Jackson. if anyone then calls him out on it, it is labelled divisive.

    Why would I post here if I cared about being grammatically or politically correct?

    Besides content > structure, except to the hopelessly anal.

    Not really. I just thought your point didn't matter: OP asked about the future so using "when" would be inappropriate.
