Black, Female, Mormon

Foser addressed this on Friday, but it's worth revisiting. The press has spent a lot of time on whether the Murkin People are "ready" to vote for a woman, an African-American, or a Mormon. But, according to poll data we have, people claim to be much more likely to vote for any of those than they are for a guy who has been married three times or a guy who is old.

In the coming months there will be major attempts by the various gangs to define what are "off limits" subjects, that is things about the candidates which are "inappropriate" to discuss in the public forum. The success of St. McCain and St. Rudy will depend on their success in defining these terms in their favor.
