Is Barack White or Black?

A rule of competition is to make it personal, if you cannot beat the platform. Sound familiar? Does it serve the competition to refer to Obama as the first black president?

Senator Barack Obama launched his campaign for presidency quietly and is now ahead of the pack. The media, caught showing Obama's photo in juxtaposition with terrorists, has begun to announce Barack Obama's bid for president with the words "Black and historic." Who were Carol Moseley Braun and Reverend Al Sharpton when they ran for President?

Has someone checked the bloodlines of every white past president to say for certain that Black has not been presidential before? Certainly, in other countries black has been King. How much black does it take to be black? One drop? That again ignores good scientific theory of 51%. What does it take to be white? Why does it matter? If he is fifty-fifty, then why not say Obama's historic white bid for presidency?

Crowds are cheering Obama's message and fear is striking in the heart of leader evildoers. As the control of the people slips from this administration, politicians who have aligned themselves with an unpopular side, are now forced to reevaluate their political posturing. Criticism is loud and abundant for Bush choices based on lies and disregard for the good of the people. Clearly the people are demanding politicians of the past release their grip on America’s throat.

A country run with intelligence and morality that crowds imagine Barack demonstrates would be a welcome change from unbridled greed and the lightly veiled business of war that makes new billionaires while children bleed to death. Hillary now placing third and John Edwards in second, trailed by Richardson help to make the choice complicated for blue voters, with reds looking weak.

America is hungry for strong leadership. The one word that is making a difference is not "change" even though Republicans and Democrats presidential contenders scramble to mention change repeatedly in their speeches, but rather it is the word "leader." Who can lead and inspire the people to tackle our country's difficult tasks ahead? We shall see.
