The City of New Haven could have avoided all of this by using a selection device (e.g., a test) that had been validated for the job at hand. If evidence of validity can be shown, disparate impact is not an issue
You're speaking out of both sides of your mouth with regard to your second point. I'm as aware as anyone else that white men have had plenty of undeserved advantages, but two wrongs don't make a right. If the best candidate (and I have no idea how one could choose one best candidate out of the hundreds of possibilities, but work with me here) is a white male, he should be nominated.
Obama had to put together the rest of his team, which is why Biden hasn't been in the news. He already has a place in the new administration. I'm sure we'll hear plenty from Biden after the new team takes over.

Wilmington could become the site of Ohio's second commercial wind farm. The first is in Bowling Green, south of Toledo. If you've ever been there, you'd know why it's a great place for a wind farm. The locals don't call it Blowing Green for nothing.
If the changes in House representation described in the attached USA article were already in effect, Obama's margin would have shrunk by 14 electoral votes, to 358-180. Obama carried all but two of the states that will lose at least one seat.
Any Democratis presidential candidate will have problems in Utah and South Carolina, but Arizona and Georgia should be competitive in 2012.
Now faith is the substance of things hoped for; the evidence of things not seen. [Hebrews 11:1]
Obama is not asking us to have faith in him. He is asking us to have faith in ourselves, in each other, and in our country. What a change it is to look for the best in each other, rather than the worst.
Obama's rhetorical skills have even led to a book, "Say it like Obama: the power of speaking with porpose and vision," by Shel Leanne.
