WHAT? Psh there isn't any cleavage in that pic goober. Get back on topic.
My response has been "let's wait and see" - he talks the talk, let's see if he walks the walk and can truly make the US a better place for ALL, as well as improving the battered image in the international community.
Is he showing the American public his birth certificate, his passport records, or even his college records like the other candidates did? If not, so much for transparency.. LOL

All you naysayers about Obama, should be listening to him right now on T.V.!
complete transparency - no lobbying presents - freedom of information act reinstated! Includes Executive Ethics!
Even if terrorists were able to pull off one attack per year on the scale of the 9/11 atrocity, that would mean your one-year risk would be one in 100,000 and your lifetime risk would be about one in 1300. (300,000,000 ÷ 3,000 = 100,000 ÷ 78 years = 1282)
if terrorists were to destroy entirely one of America's 40,000 shopping malls per week, your chances of being there at the wrong time would be about one in one million or more. Rothschild also estimated that if terrorists hijacked and crashed one of America's 18,000 commercial flights per week that your chance of being on the crashed plane would be one in 135,000.

...Incredibly, Bush and Cheney, and their wives, were loudly booed when they were introduced to the crowd.
I was ashamed to be an American.
What a total lack of class. With the world watching, Americans had to act like a bunch of immature adolescents.
An historic day, ruined by idiots.

They should have been pelted with rocks and then lynched!

The total is 864,000,000,000.
Haven't you kept up with what the world has been saying about America and Bush/Cheney over the last few years?
