    I agree with both points or would that be all three? ;)

    It's not just the Tribune but also the Sun-Times, which if you know the papers, should really give pause. It's not that they are saying he shouldn't run, just not endorsing in any way, shape, etc. Both have printed letters to the editor saying that he should, but interestingly enough I'd have to say more that he isn't experienced, has a poor record so far, and has some ethical problems already.

    I agree. And the thing is, he had someone from whom to seek some guidence. His father, while not a great president, wasn't a terrible one, either. Instead, Bush, when asked if he consulted with his father, said "I didn't consult with 'my' father; I consulted with 'THE' father".

    Not such a good way to formulate policy.

    If he was prudent he'd finish this term and if the Dems bomb in 08 should try for '12. In the mean time he should work his butt off and establish some sort of record on issues so people will know what he stands for..

    Yep, but I'll bet he'll go for it, why wouldn't he? It'll be interesting if 'no record' will get him elected or he'll end up as the first Black VP? Considering his background I'd have to say he's a 1/2 black from a well-to-do family, but I'm sure we'll hear of his 'tough' road to the Ivy. :rolleyes:

    Yep, he'll probably do all that - he is a politician after all...

    IF there is a minority President in our future, I think that it should be a black man WITH experience of which Obama has NONE!!!!!!!


    He doesn't come close to qualifying, Colin Powell on the other hand DOES!!



    And is the best choice along those lines,he's known and respected through out the world!!!!!!!



    Oh and why the little red box?

    Actually I don't like Obama for the reasons highlighted in the article, lack of experience not withstanding...
