  •  Not ready for a black President? (none)
    Am I really reading that here?

    Look, a lot of the other half are woefully misinformed. A lot of our half have been disenfrancised. Look at the vote for Obama in IL ... yes, he had a crappy opponent, but the bottom half of that state may as well be Kentucky or Indiana, and he moves people there.

    Obama knows how to convey the meaning & the myths that unite the liberal worldview.

    We must not give in to the impulse to move more to the center right ...

    The future of our party lies in Howard Dean/Tom Paine & Barack Obama/MLK, idealistic pragmatists and pragmatic idealists, working together for a better world.

      We won't be ready for a black president until it happens--the timing logic is fundamentally flawed.  Nothing new ever occurs until someone/thing makes it so (now you know, I have my phaser at my side).  If we like Obama, what the flip does it matter if the people we most oppose DON'T like him, for whatever reason.  They won't vote for a Democrat full stop.  Race, gender, toenail hygene, yada yada is irrelevant.  Dean was honestly Dean, and we still love him.

      People will follow a good leader.
