How about if you just believe the current non-white candidate is unfit for the role?

See this is your problem, you don't ever directly answer this question either, you use the "George Bush ruined this country for the last 8 years" basis. And you say that Obama will change that. Why, because he's a democrat?

How do you get all that from my one line post???
your way of thinking is extremely flawed. I have not said that Obama is fit or not, I asked how's and why the other one is?

Get your logic re-examined, then come back here and post without embarrasing yourself...

Race matters to the uninformed. And it's not just because he's black. I was included on a mass-email from someone I used to work with, encouraging people not to vote for Obama because she was afraid "my daughter will have to walk the streets wearing a veil if he's elected."

have u seen when Obama went to Europe last week? he was really celebrated as if he were a hero. i was watching it on TV and someone was wondering what he did to deserve all that. the answer was simply "because he's not george bush". all you have to do right now to be a successful president is not be george bush. mccain fails at that.

My posts in other threads have nothing to do with this post and a simple question...
Again -- your logic is simply wrong...

And don't reply to my post if I did not state something or asked you directly something. There was absolutely no reason for you to reply to my post, especially with the line that has nothing to do with what I said/asked.

Race matters because most people are at least a little bigoted. McCain would be stupid to not try to subtly use that to his advantage.

Thank you. The fact of the matter is that the injecting race in the campaign is a much bigger advantage to McCain than Obama. Politics is a game, plain and simple. Obama calling out some members of the Republican machine for "reminding" everyone that he's "so different" was a smart move in that it will draw greater attention the next time someone similar. If this campaign becomes mostly about race, Obama will lose bigtime. His campaign knows it and so does the McCain campaign. Therefore, I expect surrogates of the McCain campaign to push this subject (delicately), and the Obama campaign to try to avoid it.

On a slightly different note, I find it curious how some of you think that race actually helps Obama. Obama's historic campaign is nice for headlines, but the subject of race alienates more people than it energizes. If Obama were white, he would be destroying McCain in the poles. McCain is really a poor candidate. He was much more impressive in 2000. Its really ashame how fall he's fallen. I really used to like and respect the guy.

sorry for the rambling... I'm at work and i'm trying not to get too distracted
