Thanx for the Nader info.
I do feel sorry for Obama. He cannot win. The whites see him as black and the blacks see the white in him.
We will see what happens in November, of course, but I see McCain being (narrowly) elected. The Dems were on a hiding to nothing when they narrowed the candidates down to Obama and Clinton. The electorate will, in I fear, many cases vote on the basis of skin colour. They would have avoided Clinton on the basis that she would never be able to keep both eyes on the ball. She would have a metaphorical ball and chain, in the shape of her husband. She would have to keep one eye on him. Even if he was behaving himself, there are plenty of little darlings who would be prepared to perjure themselves for the money and the 15 minutes of fame. How do you hope to be taken seriously as President?
