I would think that might happen. it is about 66/33 D/R. Robert Byrd is the wild duck in the mix. He is a very conservative Dem. Hard to know what he would do.

I read the same book and did not gain those perspectives. And I AM a Southern white guy who also has lived in NYC a part of my life.

I guess it has to do with perspective. I have worked with so many people of so many different cultures that I don't even see color when looking at someone like Obama. I see a Harvard educated man with an A personality who grew up in a multicultural household. He has a diverse perspective that so few Americans actually have.

Is he perfect, NO. Is any politician perfect, NO. But having read his book, watched him speak, followed his campaign for what seems like 25 years but is only about a year, he does appear to be the real deal. He was not my first choice, but he is a very good second choice.

Some warts, just like everyone. A sense of mental balance that is unusual and that is good. If he builds a quality team, he has great potential and that is all anyone can expect.

The alternative is four more years of Bush policies and that is just not acceptable. We can't afford the lives or the hit to the economy for the middle class. At some point they can't handle more without crashing.

That explains all the plaid shirts in Huntington and Morgantown.

There is a connection there. I wonder if 28 percent of America follows NASCAR?
Some guinea named Coriolis forced it.

The biggest problems we are facing right now have to do with George Bush trying to bring more and more power into the executive branch and not go through Congress at all and thatís what I intend to reverse.

As for Congress playing along. I look at this next congress to be an opposing pendulum swing to the 1994 Republican Contract On America. And with a President of the same party, there is much opportunity for that change. Folks are tired of the same shit. Just look at the last three Republican districts that had special elections where both candidates went in with equal money, clout and seniority. All three Republicans got trounced in Republican heavy districts.

Will all of that be good, NO. With Exec and Congress of the same party there will be issues but the pendulum is flying past center at light speed. Some folks might want to duck.
That's EXACTLY the excuse the Repos in the previous 2 elections viewed their role following Clinton.

It's all a matter of perspective.

That New York this is important. No wonder Hillary is a senator from there, it gives her incredible cred.

I pity poor Barak Hussein Obama.
