Just in: Rice to replace Powell

According to ABC, Condeleezza Rice - Bush's National Security Advisor - is to replace the out-going Colin Powell as secretary of state. The latter's departure, although entirely predictable, has caused concern amongst US foreign policy watchers who still believe in old-fashioned values - like diplomacy.

Anyway, as it relates to Ethnic Minorities in the USA, surely the notion that African-Americans are reluctant to register to vote because of the lack of ethnic minority representation has to be abandoned? Bush has the most ethnically-diverse cabinet in US history, yet - as the piece below outlines - African-American support for the Democrats, already well-established, has actually hardened in this election.
