POLITICS: Mixed Blessing

Stories like this one, from Ben Smith, are encouraging to people hoping for an Obama victory (all stories from Ben Smith are), but really you have to wonder what kind of stable platform for governing a man gets when he's banking on supporters voting for just the color of his skin. Every time Obama supporters make the "historic" argument, they are basically pushing their man further onto a foundation of sand that won't hold up in office. Which is, of course, why - if he wins - the crucial political issue of the next four years will be whether Obama succeeds in changing the electorate and the political process to avoid having to face the disillusionment of voters who voted for him without agreeing with his record or platform.

I agree--I think this vote is about RACE for a lot of people....and black people who are just voting for Obama because he is black and they want to see a "black man in the White House", and they haven't taken the time to see if they even believe and agree with Obama's illuminati ideologies and promises.
