Remembering Harry on Barry

I suspect that Maureen Dowd is onto something when she puts her finger on a problem for the Obama White House: not enough black people. Reminds me of Harry Golden's observation on the then-presidential candidate Barry Goldwater: ""I have always thought that if a Jew ever became President, he would turn out to be an Episcopalian."

Best thing about Goldwater. "He often told the story about being born of a Jewish father and an Episcopalian mother. He would say things like, 'I went to a golf club where they wouldn't let Jews play, and I said, "I'm only half Jewish. Can I play nine holes?'"
