Its time for democrates to do some serious soul searching. Perhaps Barack Obama could provide the gasp of fresh air democrates so badly need.

Does he have a chance of becoming the first black president of America?

Barack Obama whats the guy have a whole two months of political experience under his belt ?

I think hes going to have to work alittle longer in politics before anyone should be talking about Obama for President.

Yes, when the bible belt/CSA seperates from the north and the presidential election is done while the south is currently sending democrats/gays/lesbians/blacks/asians/females who aren't subserviant to thier husbands to death camps under Dictator Bush in the new capital Houston Texas.

Well, Obama could be an NWO Uncle Tom, but who knows. He seems a little too coached to me.

I'd love to see a black president. Why can't we have a normal person tho' instead of a dude that looks like an old white man with darker skin tone? Why can't we have some kind of modern day Sojourner Truth rise up somewhere? I liked Stephen King's The Stand in that such a woman led the 'good' folks. Mother Abigail or something like that. "I still makes my own biscuit!"

Actually, as a white American, I think it is the black American who sees a more truer picture of what's going on. There are people living today who had milkshakes thrown at them for sitting at a particular counter. This was in front of tv cameras and everything and these people are still alive. Racism hasn't gone away in America and the Democratic party lies to you when it says it has. I'm for all genetic mixing because I know a little bit about how good genes tend to float to the top. Race mixing is a bogeyman that nobody needs to fear because even if you had a totally NWO type government, you'd still have folks deciding (privately) to find only a blue-eyed, blonde breeding partner. Thus, you will not lose that group of humans so chill out.

Racism sucks.

The Democrats must be getting deperate if they are getting all worked up about Barack Obama. Yes he is youn, articulate, and a minority but does not have much in the way of experience as Shadow pointed out.

I always thought that the first African American president would be a moderate Republican. You get crossover appeal, liberal guilt types would have to vote for him and you would get lots of red state support because of party affiliation.

Even if we did have a Black president, it wouldn't make any difference...

Any one remember Britains first female prime minister, Maggie Thatcher?

I'm not saying it's bad to have black presidents or women prime ministers it's just that if they got to that possition then they are no different to the usual slobs we get...
Democracy is a sham, perpetuated to fool us into thinking we play a part in the running of our country, when all along our leaders are chosen by those who can pay the most. (IMHO
)

AP&F...

the Al sharpton's, Jessie Jacksons are too preachy... one thing white conservitive americans hate is being preached to, especially from blacks.

Barack Obama probly would make a better VP then president. maybe after 8 years as VP he might be able to give it a go (you can hope)

Barack Obama, for some reason I really like him. For a Democrat he seems very sincere and straightup. Allthough I have only seem him in a couple of interviews and no debates, so my opinion of him may be flawed. But from what I've read about him he seems like a good VP candidate for experience and after that who knows...

I believe you will see a black Republican President, before you see a black democrat President.

Democrats have always kept blacks in the background, while Republicans have put them in positions of great power.

Examples?

When Al Sharpton decided to run for President in 2004, it didn't take long for democrats to force Carol Mosely Braun to run. The only reason she was there was to take votes away from Sharpton.

Maynard Jackson, former mayor of Atlanta was up for the Democrat Party leader. Behind the scene wrangling in the Democrat Party put Terry McAulliffe in charge instead.

The 3 most powerful blacks in this country are Republicans. Clarence Thomas, Condi Rice, Colin Powell. Who are the Democrats black leaders? Barack Obama, Jessie Jackson, Al Sharpton?

Why do you think Condi and Gonzalez, and Clarence Thomas, years ago, where given such a hard time at their confirmation hearings? Hint: Democrats don't like minorities in major power.

Really? "Positions of Great Power"?
The reality is this - Latinos are the largest ethnic minority, so why would a Black President happen before a Latino one?
The Blacks that were mentioned in an earlier post are universally denounced in the Black community......people will not automatically endorse the Devil because he's wearing their team colors.....Thomas, Powell & Rice are too obvious at being tools & unqualified for the token roles they were given.

"Ever"? Yes. It's much more likely that a white woman will come first, though.

Let me get this straight..

So, if you are a black person who comes to power, you are labeled a Uncle tom, right? Calling Rice, Powell and Thomas tokens is unacceptable. They are not local comissioners who can have their palms greased. They achieved their stature.

There are 34 blacks in the 108th Congress. Is this not good representation? (insert loud crickets here:lol


Maybe it will be the first female and black president if Condi Rice runs.

Isn't he mulatto? If so, then it is impossible for him to
be the first black president, because he isn't black.

Dr. Condi Rice is fully black, is educated, is capable, and
is in a position to be able to run if she wants to. I doubt
she wants to, but she could. Therefore SHE has a better
shot at being the first black president than Obama, since
he is mulatto.
*************************
Okay, I'm back. Yes, he is indeed mulatto.
www.bookfinder.us...

His father was black and from Kenya. His father abandoned
him and his mother, and went to Kenya (and I think he died there).
Obama was raised by his white mother and her family in Hawaii.

FlyersFan, can you go on that thread where all the members post pictures of themselves and post one of yourself. I really want to get a good look at whose typing this stuff. If you only have pictures of you in a straight jacket or receiving shock therapy, then those will do just fine. Thanks.

Peace

With the defeat in 2004 and losing 4 congress seat , Looks like Democrates will be more willing to make changes, as for Republicans I don't see them changing the Status Quo.

The Greens and Libertarians don't have such mass support unless of course we see the Polar Ice caps melt and sink some cities, that will push people toward the Greens.

Don't have one. We don't have one of those new
fangled digital cameras that have online pictures.

So why do I need a straight jacket? For pointing
out that Obama isn't black? He's mulatto. That's
just the facts. Read his book. He was abandoned
by his black father and was raised by his white
mother and her family. The fact that he's mulatto
doesn't make him any less capable of being
president someday ... but it DOES mean that he
wouldn't be a 'black' president and that's what
the author of this thread was looking for. He isn't
black. Dr. Rice is.

Jadestone - It's ALL possible! Black, mulatto, American Indian,
albino, hispanic, asian, whatever. It's ALL possible! Every
heritage and every skin color is possible. Any QUALIFIED American
is able to be president.
