    I saw him speak in 2004, I even told my dad he would be the first black president. I think a lot of people called it after he spoke.

    I bet many of bankers he is making rich today heard of him back in 1993. I knew nothing of him until he ran for pres. His relationship to the banking industry has been kept in the dark.

    I read about him after the keynote speech. His road to his state senate seat involved smearing first his democratic opponent and then his republican opponent. but hey...chicago politics is a rough business right?

    When he appeared at the Democratic national Convention in 2004, I knew he would be the chosen one, I mean that was his coming out party. The new and improved liberal. They set set Hillary aside for younger and more charismatic. The new liberal media darling

    He had been a freshman senator. I said out loud, OMG, this is the lefts new tool, watch the faces of those on the floor listening to him :rolleyes:

    LOL, he talks about jobs and Government is not the answer :lol:

    Oh, and he said he is "a believer in knowing what you are doing, when you apply for a job"

    You don't like that no one heard of Palin before McCain annointed her so did this thread? That's so cute.

    As the others said, Obama spoke at the convention in 2004.

    She was picked b/c McCain thought women are stupid and would vote for anyone if they were female.

    Hadn't heard of him until the DNC speech.

    Hadn't heard of Bush II, either until he ran

    Hadn't heard of Clinton, either

    or Bush I... until he was VP

    So?
