    I can imagine Bill Clinton and his advisers thinking of their next plan and how best they can help Hilary.

    Obama and Clinton are my favorite but Obama has a better chance of running again and winning with no problem than Hillary ever consider herself a candidate if she ever flop this one. And by the time Obama runs again, he would have gained more experience and well recognized than how he is now.. Obama being a president now just seem flimsy and unreliable.

    So let me understand what you are saying....

    A man who was raised by his American mother and maternal grandparents, because his Kenyan father esentially abandoned him, should now go a fix that same village of the abandonning father before he is possibly elected the first black President in US history?


    ok............ :rolleyes:

    Great day for America.New Hampshire would be a challenge.Hillary would fight like a tiger. They would attempt to rough him up. It would be ugly.I give her a 3-1 chance of winning the nomination and possibly the presidency and Obama a 6-2 chance. It's a tall order. But he might make it..



    Did any of you watch Obama's victory speech last night? What a speech?! My God! Regardless of what happens on January 8 and super duper Tuesday(Feb.5),one thing is certain.Barack Hussein Obama is the future of American politics.

    @ bold: Yes, he does.

    I feel he owes more to the family that took time and love to raise a muti-racial child in the 60s when racial tensions were at their height in American society. Think about it. His mother's family, not only accepted and embraced their daughter marrying a black man, but an African!! All in the 1960s, when inter-racial marriages were not universally accepted. While his father left, not returning to see his son but once!

    Barack, on his own, searched for his roots. Even though he was raised with limited African culture. Or whatever could be found in Hawaii and Thailand, the main places he was raised. To me, that is amazing enough. The shear fact that he embraced that side of his heritage, openly, with no hesitation, especially given his father's abandonment, is a testament to his upbringing and his ethics.

    @ blue: Did you read his book, "Dreams Of My Father"? I did. I'm not attacking or picking on you, but many, many people who grew up with a story like his, would only mention their African heritage as a side note, if at all. The sheer fact that he openly embraces Kenya and his Kenyan culture should be enough.

    He doesn't need to fix up a village..

    If he does any of those things now, America will see him as a Kenyan, and African and he will lose the nomination and Presidency. In short that will be the end of his dream to be a President. Period! He may fix his grand parents’ home, even his entire province after (two 4yr terms) he leaves office. In short for all I care, he should even move back to Kenya after his second term, but not before he leave’s office.
