If we take the President, Vice-President, Speaker and Minority Leader in the House, Majority and Minority Leaders in the Senate, the Supreme Court and throw in the Governor of our most populous state, only two of them are white, protestant men (the Senate's Mitch McConnell, who is Baptist and Harry Reid, who is Mormon). The 16 top spots now celebrate 2 African Americans, 3 Jews, 4 women and 11 Catholics. Pretty clever, those founders.
