A few months ago, I offered up lessons women lawyers should learn from U.S. Sen. Hillary Clinton, D-N.Y., who was running for president of the United States. Now, it only seems fair to impart some lessons minority lawyers should learn from her opponent, U.S. Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., now the presumptive Democratic nominee.

This is not to say that there’s nothing to be learned from U.S. Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., the presumptive Republican nominee. He’s, undoubtedly, a statesman and may well be our next president. Still, he’s white, and he’s male; I just don’t know anything about being either of those two things.
