    Not that I know of, but it's like being named, say, William Hitler Clinton. It's just bad for publicity.

    I agree. I can't see him going anywhere because of his name. Teddy Kennedy called him Osama bin Laden, Osama Obama. If he'd known about the middle name, he'd have probaby called him Saddam. :)

    I think you might want to look at Hillary's voting record before you decide she's a socialist, though the right does love to spin that even though it has no rational basis in fact. She's unelectable, but for other reasons. First, she's too divisive, IMO... she'd be the right's wettest dream and they'd be drooling all over themselves over all the money they could raise running ANYONE against her. Second, she voted to authorize baby bush to go into Iraq. Obama didn't... he comes to the table unscathed.

    That said, I don't see voting for either Hillary or Obama in a primary.

    As for CONDI, she's been a cipher as Secy of State.... she's useless and can't get a single democratic vote... again, a problem of divisiveness... the money that would be raised to defeat any candidacy of hers would be phenomenal.

    I also think it's pretty tacky to treat someone who was one of the top 100 attorneys in the country even BEFORE her husband became president, with disrespect if you're going to inflate Condi... who's accomplished pretty much nothing with her degree, though I hear she's very good at holding the boss's feet while he does sit ups and he likes having her around when he watches football.

    You're looking in the wrong place as far as Condi goes... try looking at Giuliani if the radical right lets him get through a primary. He's the candidate to beat based on everything I'm hearing.

    The media's giddiness over Obama is much like their reaction to Tiger Woods when he first appeared in the caucasian dominated game of golf(who cares except actual black people that realized that at most Tiger is an eighth black and much more Asian than anything else). The obvious difference being that Tiger actually has talent of course.

    Watch for Pelosi to suggest some plastic surgery done on those giant ears, he is any caricature artist's wet dream.
