The struggle continues. As most right-wing people, I feel a disgust for Hillery. She burned her bridges long ago. But what is not to like about Obama? He is a self-made man, eloquent, sincere, compassionate and reasoned; in other words not your average politician. And even though you do not support his ideological standpoints, one cannot help to get touched by his flaming speeches and his charisma. If he can make Mrs. Clinton cry one more time, I’m all in favor.
But despite all the current interest in Obama, does he stand a chance in the Real election? Frankly, no. And it has nothing with his political inexperience. He can easily make up for that with his intelligence and his insight. But I think what it will come down to is color and name. Americans wouldn’t be willing to consider a mocha-colored candidate like Colin Powell for the presidency, or a witty black female like Condoleza Rice – how much chance does a black man named Barack Hussein Obama then really have? I doubt it. Sadly, nevermind if you’re a Rep like Colin and Condoleza Rice or a Dem like Obama – the matter or skin color is still plaguing the world.
Shame on us all!
