    I think if our country elected a black president... we would have a black president.

    Obviously if he won the election, we're "ready" for it... once he's won, I don't see how he'd be any different than any other president.

    I do not think there would be much issue with a black president. Anything has got to be better than what we had. Personally, I would vote for black president, just for something new. It would be nice to quit getting these old white men who all think alike.

    I hate to break it to you but you need to brush up on your presidential history. There is a huge gap between the president who gave the united states a name accepted by the world and a seat on the united nations and you shouldn't even dare compare them to the modern day puppets that are elected into office. I am not against having a "black" (who cares what color you call them they're still people) person as president I just want it to be someone with a little intelligence and backbone and a person who isn't going to send the entire world to hell in a handbasket. (am I allowed to say that? I didn't see any rules against it and i read them three or four times.)

    ... and join my rebellion against time.

    Not with a electoral vote system. If Obama were to win the same way President Bush won in 2000 what would that mean then? I think it's time though, considering how some other countries have already had their first female leader. If Obama does indeed become our president, I would say his bodyguards would have to work twice as hard. Honestly, everyone knows that in certain states they are still pretty behind in terms of race.

    that's so true and yet so stupid I mean like I said before people are people you can't excuse them of that. Any person male or female black or white is capable of being intelligent and therefore a good president. However that's the one flaw with the human race... we divide ourselves

    i imagine for the first year everyone would make a big deal about it, and then the rest of the time he would be scrutinized and disected for everything little thing he says. Down to the placing of his commas and how loud he coughs! he would have to be beyond perfect in every way, and even then, people would say he's doing a horrible job...

    why? well, number one, being the first at almost anything sucks ass and, number two, he's the president... taking sh!t from the people who didn't elect you/people who did elect you but don't like where it's going will have a problem with you...

    will i vote for him? no, but that's becuz i'm more republican and i like Clinton better...

    meh I think that whoever is elected will have to win by a landslide or risk being assasinated regardless of who it is at this point... Bush really turned the view on american presidents in a bad way... so best of luck to both because I think they could both do a super job at changing the states for the better...

    I'd be overjoyed, I think it's time for our state to finally have one, try him out for size as for what I'm saying.

    Sounds a bit mean doesn't it? ^^;;; well I just don't think that we're ready for a woman president, not yet anyways, sometime in the future but just not now. I have to agree with Astaroth.

    But what goes, goes. ^^
