I'm not too sure about the comparison to Spock's "alien-ness" match, although in Trek aliens = races, since "race" "doesn't exist".

The article also talks briefly about Obama's cabinet as "the Enterprise Crew", and it made me think about the praise that Obama is getting for nominating a diverse cabinet. It does remind me that Bush also had people of colour in prominent positions, even though eventually Bush/Cheney exploited Colin Powell's reputation, and Rice and Gonzalez weren't exactly stars in the firmament...
