You don't consider winning the Presidency of the US with a majority in the popular vote and electoral college an accomplishment?

Can you match it?

But, that's for a different thread...
Well, let's see. You're telling me he was elected the first BLACK president at Harvard Law review, but don't want the question of race involved. Is there any possibility that being black affected the choice? Who were the other candidates? Since it's a "job" as you claim, what exactly does the President of Harvard Law Review do? Anything? I guess you're saying BO got good grades, was an excellent writer, and is/was on good terms with the faculty and student body right? I know I list student body president on my resume.

I can give you one thing that he did that none of the candidates did that is a true sentiment expressed not only in America but abroad. He single handedly brought a sense of hope back in the picture. I know for some that is not enough and I agree. He will be held accountable for the things he said, way more then any President in the history of out nation. The fact that he has united so many kinds of people is amazing, yet this is not good enough for people. Lets say he did nothing. Lets say he had no history in our political process. Lets say he didn't bring any kind of well thought out policies to the for front. Can you honestly whether you like him or not, erase the history he has of bringing people together. Please exclude his race, I am just talking about the man.

No, race is just coincidental. I just lifted that from the web.
Did I say it was a job? I just said it was an impresive accomplishment.

Why are you so hung up on race?

I have never included his race in anything, except to say that his race is a factor to a very large portion of citizens, many of which voted soley on the basis of his race. That cannot be ignored. Does that mean that he will fail as President or that he is unqualified for the job? No. He is however, one of the least experienced men to ever fill those incredibly large shoes. Bringing people "together" is not a BO accomplishment, because it doesn't "accomplish" anything. Taking a start up with 1-2 guys to a multi-million dollar business, that's an accomplishment. His charisma may well help him accomplish things in the future and I sincerely hope so. I'm already seeing the left backpedal on what it is BO may be able to do as far as creating jobs, reducing the deficit, etc. Hope, my friends, does not pay the bills. Good luck to you Mr. President, for it means good luck for us all.

I have faith in intelligence. Bush has proven the inadequacy of idiocy.
Maybe BO is not the most experienced, but I believe in his abilities.
