    He is a pretty boy who is a socialist at heart.

    Scratch the surface and you will find a hard core lefty.

    He was elected here in Illinois and people don't even know what his political philosophy is, this state is wacked :banghead:

    Old partner- don't bet a lot of money on that. A lot of folks are just plain disgusted with lying, cheating, self-serving politicians, and might jump on a guy who looks "clean". I'm not saying Obama is that guy- but it is the image he's trying to project. One of his big advantages is his minimal political history. There's not much out there for supporters or opponents to grab on to. Sounds like he's pretty cagey.

    Chuck, who doesn't trust any Illinois politician.

    FoxNews reported at noon today that Oprah Winfrey is putting her influence behind his candidacy. Be scared; she has a huge demographic following.

    There's a few people who disagree.

    He's very charismatic and really seems honest,but i don't like the some of the answers he's given

    seems to want to please both sides and very soft on illegal immigration

    Is it really that bad for the republicans this time around that the democrats are going to risk either the first black or the first female nominee and give them a fighting chance?

    Of course the conservatives might throw Condi into the ring and have all the above, plus the gay/lesbian vote.

    A women or African American for the Democrats is the only chance for the Republicans to win imo.Don't know if America is ready for it

    Mitt Romney was on O'Reilly a few weeks ago, and he flat said if he was president he would seal the border. Bush's position on illegal immigration has obviously been compromised by his relationship with Vincente Fox. I think it will be interesting to see the debates in '08, when a hardline republican gets the nomination, and looks the democratic nominee in the eye, and asks them to explain their position. Hilary has already flagrantly fipl flopped. I think it will hurt when they are cornered, and their response is a dodge, something to the effect of, "There's room for everyone in America if we all compromise a little."

    Has Obama ever taken any kind of position on RKBA?

    Why settle for Obama when we can have the real thing, Oprah Herself? Fifty million housewives can't be wrong.

    Sure, he put D behind his name and took money from Oprah. Do you really need more?

    The reason I ask, is, if he hasn't, I doubt he will. I think he, just like Hilary, doesn't want to hear a word about the issue during the campaign or their first term. If they make any significant policy regarding RKBA, they will wait until the second term. Incumbent, touchy subject, lame duck, who cares?

    Obama does not believe in the RTKBA. I read one of his speeches and he was pretty clear about it. Can't find the link right now, but if you look you'll see.
    Obama's not a bad guy, and he must be pretty smart since he was the top dawg of the Harvard Law Review. But I just was not impressed by him. My wife showed me his interview on Oprah, and I was underwhelmed. He was a smart guy and a good guy, but he just did not have the charisma and strength of personality that Clinton or Reagan had. Maybe I misjudged him, but he did not seem like someone who had enough killer instinct to be president. There are quite a few other folks I'd rather have as president, on both sides of the aisle.

    Obama was completely unheard of before the last election.

    I don't think you can win a national election by relying on only the Harvard vote.
