    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 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
