It might happen... Barack Obama
« on: July 28, 2004, 11:26:15 AM »
Many are saying he could be the first ever Black U.S. president. I saw him in the news, in the black community, where he used to be a community activist in the South Side of Chicago. I hear him speak, and his a very smart man, who I would not mind seeing as president. I thought Collen Powell would be the first black president, who I would vote for because he seems to be one of the few reasonable people in the public eye, but he has turned down running for years. Barack Obama though has not ruled it out, and is looking to be only the 3rd black senator in U.S. history since 1865. Also, Obama has a stage presents I think only rivaled by Bill Clinton, in terms of speaking, and he doesn't talk regular Democrat, but also very middle of the line, common American, with a left slant. I can see him beig president, though not winning many southern states. But it would be cool to see him run if Kerry loses in 2008, or if Kerry wins, 2012. Though Hillary has to run too, and Edwards who I don't see winning nomination ever. In the end though, it's an exciting time to see all the future possibilities for Democrat hopefuls. After hearing Obama though, I like him in 2008-2012. Obama 4 President.

have you heard him. His running unoppose in Illinois for the senate because his so popular, Republicans can't find anyone who wants to run against him. He could do it. I heard his speech, and to say the least, only Bill Clinton can rival Obama in speaking, he seems to have what it takes to agree with much of the United States. Could be interesting.

Colin powell lost all chance of becoming a future president when he joined up with bush.
Everyone will remember him when he was at the UN presenting his "facts" of saddams WMD.

I thought it was a great speech...he looks much younger than he really is as well.

He sounds exactly like The Rock.

Definitely President material - he's a career politician remember - his goal in life is to be Pres, whereas Powell and Jesse Jackson were not always thinking about the Presidency so it was easier for them to turn the chance down.

If Powell was ever going to run it would have been against Clinton in '96.  Now Machiavelli is exactly right when he says he has been tainted by Iraq.  Also he is tired and will retire after 2004 regardless of what happens in the election.  He missed his chance.


M Dogg why do you think Edwards wouldn't get the nomination???

If Kerry loses, it's Edwards 2008.  If he wins and gets eight years, it's Edwards 2012 (Clinton 8 years - Gore, Reagan 8 years - Bush, Eisenhower 8 years - Nixon).  The only chance Edwards is not the next nominated one is if Kerry wins, is highly unpopular, so everyone involved in the administration is tainted.  In that case it would leave it wide open for Hillary.

2016 is Barrack's one.  He'll be 54 then. That's Presidential age.  Till then it's Edwards 90% Hillary 10%.

I don't know anything about him, but his name sounds Muslim.  Barack has the Arabic root letters ba, ra, ka, which means "blessed".

He mentioned that in an interview. His day is actually from Kenya, not African-American, and he choice the name.

Jay, you may be right about Edwards. I actually would have liked him if he would have won the nomination, we'll see. Maybe 2008 is his year. We'll see what happens.

Shit, do something? Only the 3rd one since 1865? C'mon.. We've voted to have at least 40% of females.. i think you can do the same with minorities (blacks, latinos, and even women).

I've heard many things about this guy, not one thing negative. I wanna hear his speech but the damn media is too concerned with Kerry's wife, who I could give a shit about to be honest.

^^ Both sad, but both very true.  No doubt, this man is very intelligent and maybe he's running unopposed in Illinois, but there's still other places in the US where people would find the idea of a black president to be unthinkable.  I do not support this idea in any way but I agree when rampant says he has no chance.

Im a fan.
"One day Alice came to a fork in the road and saw a Cheshire cat in a tree. "Which road do I take?" she asked. "Where do you want to go?" was his response. "I don't know," Alice answered. "Then," said the cat, "it doesn't matter."

 ::) Can you try any harder to try and be a smart ass.

African immigrants don't like to be called African-American, African-American means you were born here. Obama's dad was not born in the United States, he was born in Kenya, making him African. Obama himself is half African/half white, he was born in the United States, so you can say his African-American, though he identifies with both sides, not just one.

Last time I checked, you were sonned about 100 times by me.
Picking up the ball from inside his own half, the pint-sized Argentine skipped past challenge after challenge. Always appearing to be on the point of tumbling, he was miraculously able to retain his balance before rounding Peter Shilton and slotting the ball home for a goal manufactured in heaven.
