Another Obama Prediction

This one is very specific.

Jesse Jackson will come out against Obama after he wins. He will accuse him of not being true to his heritage and make other statements alluding to the fact that he is not a real black man, and as such should not be considered the first Black American President.

Who's John Galt.

WTF???

Am I missing something? That sounds like a Jesse Jackson prediction. Please explain how and why the (real or imagined) actions of Jesse Jackson are the responsibility of Barack Obama, as in "Another Obama Prediction"...

BTW, on an unrelated note, I have a theory that extreme partisanship causes brain damage.

Now if it was VERY specific it would come with a date, time and network.

And since we have the whole white mother/black father thing going, Jackson does have a point. I would think we would need a geneticist to break down the actual percentage to determine EXACTLY where Obama is on the RACE teeter totter. Wait, now I remember. It's not that Fn important.

So really, this prediction is sorta vague.

BTW on an even more unrelated note, those who walk in the middle of the road have a greater chance of being run over than those who pick a lane.

The key is picking the correct lane.

Might I suggest NOT following Bush or one of his followers to insure safety for the team.

Oh, I picked a lane, I'm Libertarian -- a real Libertarian. I have no dog in this hunt, and will pull the lever for Bob Barr. But I'm not so myopic that I cannot see value in perspectives other than my own.

Meep, meep. Don't worry Wile E, that was just the roadrunner dashing by you as your rocket blew up.

That looks like extreme partisanship to me! So what's it like riding the political short bus?
