    That this election turned more into a racistist thing then anything else. All over TV I have seen nothing but blacks saying things like “we did it getting a black in the house”. Or my sisters kids called and say they want to be like obama and be pres. It just seems like it was all a whites vs blacks and they one or they feel they one. I dont care what his skin color is as long as he can lead the greast country in the world where it needs to go.

    No, if it was a “race thing”, McCain/Palin would have won in a landslide. Race was only one factor. Had it not been Obama, it would have been Hillary, and we’d be asking “do you think this was gender thing?”. IMO, McCain just didn’t separate himself enough on the “socialist issues”. He missed a big chance when he didn’t condemn the bailout as just that – socialism. [-X

    This election is indicative of the condition of the country.

    Racism is truly colorblind it knows no boundaries of skin color, age or religion and no matter how hard we may try every person is infected.

    I’m not going to get into endless debates about what part race played in this election, as I think it’s counter-productive.

    But I will say this once. If Obama had a white skin tone, he would never have gotten the democratic nomination. In my opinion he was wholely unqualified for POTUS.

    But the masses have spoken….and you know what they say about the masses.

    And in the end, the country and the people will survive.

    Breaks my heart though…. [=}=]

    Wasnt it 80-90% of black voters voted for Obama…..

    If Obama disappeared today from the face of the earth… “CHANGE” has already occurred…

    “WE” must help determine what else is changed… and decide whether the “CHANGE” is good or bad..

    I do believe there was a significant “racIAL” component to the election. I don’t believe that “racISM” played as big a role as some suggest.

    Change is what got him elected. It wasent that people wanted HIM, they were just sick of G.W.B.
    Heck I coulda ran for congress and won simply by airing ads with my opponent with Bush.
    Round here everybody just went into the polls and pulled the “D” lever. [=}=]

    Sad day for our country!!! :thumbdown

    In his public persona, I’d agree.
