I disagree. Take 2008 for example. With Obama running, you can bet your ass that a lot of blacks and Muslims voted for him solely because he is black and of Muslim heritage.

If Hillary were to run for president, you can also bet your ass that a lot of women would vote for her solely because she's a woman and it would give us the first woman president ever, a large step in women's rights.

I don't want our president to be elected by a process where the vote is partly comprised of uneducated (or some educated) people who vote by things other than the candidates policies.
