Is America Ripe For A Female Or A Black President?

As the saying goes "If America sneezes every other Country catches cold" . Recently

Hillary Clinton has finally announced that she is considering running for president in 2008 - a declaration anticipated for the past six years that puts a heavyweight contender into the race.

Another contender for the most powerful position in the world is Senator Barack Obama.

Barack Obama's mother was from Kansas and his father was from Kenya - leading observers to suggest he is an African and an American, but not an African-American.

The real issue is who can lead a country fighting on two fronts, protect our economy and borders and still manage to keep a few friends?

Whats you opinion? Is America ripe for a female or a Black President?

I would not be shock if Obama become the president, His colour of skin should not matter , but the content of his heart. The republic refuse to thrown into the race young people. that is why they may loss, old idea , do not change new society.

Sen. Obama has just started on a very good note, I think if everythin is done fairly,he'l definitely win, however, i seriously doubt that he will considerin d fact dat he's black. I admire his courage, he reminds me of Dr. Martin Luther king who had a dream.

O-BA-MA, O-BA-MA, O-BA-MA, O-BA-MA,one more time O-BA-MA, O-BA-MA, O-BA-MA, O-BA-MA

not cos he's black but cos he's the best amongst the candidates both democrats and republicans

go O-BA-MA, O-BA-MA, O-BA-MA, O-BA-MA.

though i think he might not win, not cos he isnt good enough but i sense the repeat of 2000 when bush rigged the election

people brace urself 4 another INEC in the US of A, i hope all americans would resist fraud this time around and allow the best man 4 the job win.

The truly amazing thing is that Obama carried a state that has only a 2% black population. It's great to see that many American people can see a candidate for his ideals and look past his race. It also helps that people are fed up with presidential dynasties, and want something entirely new. Cannot wait till we kick the current out of office. The turnout was simply astounding which for democrats, and the democrats can also take commfort in knowing that people will not elect a religious nut like Huckabee into office.

Obama Edwards 08 is invincible

You really think what the "BLACK WORLD" needs is an obama to get the message that the gate has always been open for them to step right on up and get what they want?? LMAO!!!! I am sure the same was said when Oprah made her first billion, Many of them do not even consider him black, what makes you think what he has done will help?? I bet you there are many already telling their kids he is not really of black that is why he was able to get this close. Can we please stop making this about the man's skin color but about what he has to offer?? I don't understand how people can continue to call for no racism but then turn around and speak in terms of skin color as if it matters a great deal.

Please vote cause you actually support his campaign and not cause of the tone of his skin!

this, for me, is the message of obama. he wont get there, but he has showed the black world that we have the right to dream big, and the capability to pursue our dreams. . . . as part of those famous words in the american constitution . . . . . that we hold these truths to be self evident, that all men were created egual . . . . . . .inalienable rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness

I get goose-bumps when I read the above words being spoken by a black American man in a country where a whole generation still bear living memory of the days when some Americans were barred from even voting at all, simply because they were Americans of African ancestry.

Even if Obama does not get elected to be America's next president, a major milestone in US history has been reached with his getting to within the closest proximity ever attained by a black man to becoming The Most Powerful Man on Earth.

The impossible is no longer necessarily so for the black man in America, thanks to the articulate son of a Kenyan immigrant called Obama, who dared to dream, and then reached for it.
