In one of his summaries of the candidates perceived assets and liabilities going forward, Time's Mark Halperin citesk this as one of Obama's liabilities:

Inscrutable/mysterious/different

The McCain version of that would be "white bread, pale, vanilla". Why doesn't Halperin just say that one of Obama's perceived liabilities is that he's black? Why the code talking. Let's just say it.
