It seems Senator Obama has a reasonable position on affirmative action that is causing many in his camp to fear the implications of moving beyond raced based preferences.

We need to discuss the historical trends, the progress, and the future for all Americans. To my delight, Obama seems to be leading a more complete discussion that other black leaders, and he should continue.
