no one really knows how good of a leader he is yet. Im in complete agreeance (sp) with you that he is extremely intelligent and is inspiring, but its to early to tell how he will do as president. Also I would say the younger demographic 18-24 dont really seem to have very legitimate reasons for being as big of supporters as they are.
I think the "Light at the End of the Tunnel" is basically a context meaning an intelligent person capable of connecting with the American populace. The fact that he is black says something about us as Americans - though I think it's incredibly racist to even CONSIDER voting for someone just because they are black. It shouldn't even matter.
I am not impressed with Obama. I HOPE I will be, and I think he is promising. If not, it's not like he could do anything to make our situation worse beyond Hitlerian agendas or flipping off the Pope. [which would still be badass]
i dont think that his innauguration should be treated any differently just because he is black. Sure he is the first black president and that shows progress but just acknowledging the fact that he is "different" from other presidents is racist in itself. and for the record i dont agree with his views but i respect him for what he has acomplished
Incorrect, he was liberating latin america. Not "fucking it up".
