    We all know it has sold many times in the past. But have times changed? Will this current awful economic mess we're in, override the Race-Baiting/Class Warfare rhetoric? I'm interested in hearing what you all think. Thanks.

    I think having the race card played on folks over and over again has finally shut down the guilt/fear factor.

    It's unfortunate, as there really is racism and now it's less likely that pressure will be brought to bear when it rears its ugliness.

    I hope so. I'm pretty confident Obama's message can transcend the Romney camp's ugly and false race-baiting/class warfare rhetoric around welfare and the like.

    Keep on hoping. But it ain't gonna happen. The Dear Leader ain't no 'Uniter.'

    While it's true that the Republican party, after it's being created specifically due to the fact that the likes of Lincoln and Fredrick Douglas to name a couple, took issue with the Whig party's refusal or inability to take on Southern Democrat slave owners, has in fact fought many a long hard battle against Democrats to free and then secure the rights of blacks; I'm inclined to see racial equality as more of a national effort with freedom loving Americans from all political backgrounds deserving credit.

    But thanks for the sentiment anyway. ;)

    Will we see those hideous fake Greek Columns this time? I doubt it. The columns collapsed a long time ago. 'Hope & Change' has been a real disaster.
