Is America Ready for a Jewish President?

URL: http://www.jewishjournal.com/opinion/article/is_america_ready_for_a_jewish_president_20030620

Because of our history, American Jews have had reason to worry about anti-Semitism and scapegoating, but we have also worked to break down barrier after barrier in virtually every aspect of American life. Today, we have the opportunity to break down perhaps the most important barrier: that a Jew cannot be elected president of the United States. And ironically, the skepticism on this issue comes not from non-Jews but from Jews.
