Default The Ferraro Counterfactual

I don't think it's crazy to speculate that, were it possible to establish empirically, Obama's race on balance helped him. But it's not, as McWhorter characterizes it at one point, a fact. And I think Coates' argument is pretty sound there are plenty of other variables you could just as easily control for that would have even more explanatory power than race for how Obama won the nomination.
