    Cut and pasted from an email:

    ~~~~~

    What if the Obamas had paraded five children across the
    stage, following the debate, including a three month-old infant and an unwed, pregnant teenage
    daughter?

    What if John McCain was a former president of the Harvard Law Review?

    What if Barack Obama finished fifth from the bottom of his college
    graduating class?

    What if McCain had only married once, and Obama was a divorcee?

    What if Obama had met his second wife in a bar and had a long
    affair while he was still married?

    What if Michelle Obama was the wife who not only became addicted
    to pain killers but also acquired them illegally through her
    charitable
    organization?

    What if Cindy McCain graduated from Harvard?

    What if Obama had been a member of the Keating Five?
    (The Keating Five were five United States Senators accused of
    corruption in 1989, igniting a major political scandal as part of the
    larger
    Savings and Loan crisis of the late 1980s and early 1990s.)

    What if Obama couldn't read from a teleprompter?

    What if Obama was the one who was known to publicly display a serious
    anger management problem?

    What if Michelle Obama's family had made their money from beer
    distribution?

    You could easily add to this list. If these questions reflected
    a reality, if the tables were turned, do you really believe the election
    numbers would be as close as they are?

    This is what racism does. It covers up, rationalizes and minimizes
    qualities in one candidate and emphasizes negative
    characteristics in another when there is a color difference.

    And, think of this - the candidates' educational backgrounds:

    Barack Obama:
    Columbia University - B.A. Political Science with a Specialization in
    International Relations.
    Harvard - Juris Doctor (J.D.) Magna Cum Laude

    Joseph Biden:
    University of Delaware - B.A. in History and B.A. in Political Science.
    Syracuse University College of Law - Juris Doctor (J.D.)


    John McCain:
    United States Naval Academy - Class rank: 894 of 899

    Sarah Palin: Hawaii Pacific University - 1 semester
    North Idaho College - 2 semesters - general study
    University of Idaho - 2 semesters - journalism
    Matanuska-Susitna College - 1 semester
    University of Idaho - 3 semesters - B.A. in Journalism

    Education isn't everything, but this is about the two highest
    offices in the land as well as our standing in the world.

    You make the call.

    You are correct.

    Racism has minimized the accomplishments of Michelle and Barack.

    But that is ok. He has run a perfect campaign, and he is going to win, and he is going to be a good president.

    Probably a lot more conservative president than people think.

    Exactly, I don't want a joe sixpack running the whitehouse, intelligence and temperment are important presidential qualities. With Obamas supeior policys and intellect, combined with Bidens unrivaled expertise in foreign relations, you have a clearly superior team. McCain and Palin's campaign has further damaged the brand of the party. McCain will not only lose on the 4th, he will take the GOP with him.

    I think it is more accurate that racism has forgiven the sins of John, Cindy, and Sarah.

    G.W. Bush graduated from Harvard and Yale yet you liberals have called him a dimwit for almost eight years now.

    Hypocritical much?

    Check out Michelle Obama's senior thesis entitled "Princeton-Educated Blacks and the Black Community" (How creative!) and tell us all how much of a genius she is:
    Michelle Obama thesis was on racial divide - Jeffrey Ressner - Politico.com

    There's a reason she's not campaigning next to Barack.

    The democrats really didn't think Obama would just float through this election did they. Sorry, but just flinging a black candidate up there doesn't change any rules.

    GWB was not called a dimwit because of his creds, but because of his asinine comments and actions once he got in.

    You do know that Obama got extra points on his Harvard app because his father went there, right?
