The population of Asian Americans in The United States of America according to the Central Intelligence Agency World Fact book

is 4.2% of 280,562,489 (July 2002 est.)

The population of White Americans according to the same factbook is: 77.1%

The current Immigration changes brought about by the WTC disaster on 9/11 and Bush's anti-terrorism strategys have made, acted to make the amount of Asian immigrants to America decrease by 80% annualy. I can give you details of this through email and new immigration procedure implemented. Asians would have to occupy at least 40% of American population in order to have true voting power in the US and because of these new changes, that isnt gonna happen for a LONG time.
Add to that the number of Asian American's that cannot even vote because of their illegal alien status and they are not going to make a difference.

I would like to see a non-white in the big seat to but be realistic, there is no overcoming racism in america. it isnt going to happen. The poll up top thinks an Asian American will be president within 60 Years? Maybe if you all were a little more realistic, you would know that this is an impossibility.

After 2048? Id say "YES"

You know what, from now on I'm not going to pay my electricity bills instead I'll just say the mail carrier lost them. Works for Bush Jr. so I think I'm gonna try my luck.

And for the right-wingers who think I'm unfairly picking on their man I've also made it a policy of mine to answer, "I did not have sexual relations with her" when my girl asks why I'm seemingly getting a blow job on a video cassette which might or might not be mine but she found carelessly hidden.

The race of the President does not matter much to me. I evaluate politicians as individuals, not representatives of racial groups. Favoring an Asian politician over a non-Asian competitor, solely on racial consideration, smacks me as reverse-racism.

I may vote for an Asian Presidential candidate someday, but only because I like his/her positions on issues, character, etc., not because he/she is an Asian like myself.

Asian American Male,

Bones and Skulls...

I don't put much value on these groups. Their spheres of influence are limited to a few things. Over time their hold will dimish, as JFK proved and minority success in other fields also show.

When I was growing up I though the world started and ended with the Chinese Tong. I grew up saw the world and realise their sphere influence is very small.
I never met a DAR or a Freemason, but I bet that they wear the same made in China underwear 80% of all American wear.

AC Dropout:

There has been only one president who was not directly descended from DAR: John Kennedy and he was assasinated. The whole GOP Southern Strategy was aimed at keeping not only minorities, but also white ethnics such as Italians and Greeks out of the Presidency. Hence, the GOP paints every non-southern Democrat as a liberal. Gulliani will never win the Presidency. The WASPS would never vote for him. But, someone like Evan Bayh of Indiana or Howard Dean of Vermont could. May be if the ethnics and other minorities get their act together and if the ethnics do not try to fit into the DAR mindset, we can start with an ethnic governor in Illinois this year.

We have to note that 70% of the Americans are not descended from DAR. We should stop trying to fit in with them and try first to elect a president who is not a WASP
