Who do you think the first African American President will be?
Not sure but: JC Watts; Condoleza Rice; and early to say, but possible, Barak Obama. Certainly possible someone we haven't even heard of. Colin Powell could have, but most certainly doesn't want it-for his own reasons.
I don't think there will be one in the near future...so perhaps the names of the one we will get aren't familiar to me so I can't vote for any of the people named in the poll.
I don't think Condoleeza, regardless of her fitness for the job, will ever be elected nor do I think that JC Watts will be.
I believe American society must move past prejudices of the past before we will we elect someone/anyone based soley on who he/she is and what he/she stands for and not have his/her race be the issue.
I voted for Colin Powell because I think he would definitely have the best chance. Sharpton,and Jackson wouldn't havea chance and the Obama is just becoming more well known. I like J.C. Watts too,but Colin is much more popular.
I wouldn't mind seeing Condy Rice either. She is one of the only women I have seen that I think is tough enough to do it.
JC Watts or Condi will be the first. Powell is too "white" to attrack a lot of the black vote and the others are just too whacky to attract just about ANYBODY's vote.
I'm still waiting for the first WHITE president of the United States.
How about David Duke?
I voted for Alan Keyes. He's the most well spoken of the bunch, and I agree with just about everything he says.
But that doesn't change the fact that I don't think there'll be a black President in America for long, long time to come. Like another hundred years or so.... if ever.
I think this coutry has a better chance of seeing a hispanic President before a black.
When I voted,I voted for who I though was likely to win if they were running. When it comes to who I would actually vote for,I would say Alan Keyes,because I know he is pretty firm on his pro life stanse and I also agree with pretty much everything he says. Then again,I do like J.C. Watts too?LOL
