It’s 2008 and I’m full beyond the questions “is America ready for a black president” or “is America ready for a woman president.” I’m dismayed that old feminists and old civil rights activists are lockstep in their support for candidates based on race and gender. It’s just dumb. These United States so desperately need adroit and wise leadership that the old battles of race and gender should seriously be put aside.

I would like to see Barak Obama as the Democratic candidate. Further, I’d like to see him elected president because I believe all the other candidates are far too tainted by special interests to make the hard decisions that will face the next administration.
