Obama, Heir (Err) Apparant

Well, after yesterday’s election results in NC and IN, it appears that freshman Sen. Obama (D-Illinois) at 46 years of age, is going to win his party’s nomination for president. I happen to think his nomination will secure a win in November for the Republican party. Here’s why.

Obama is young–too young–and lacks the political experience of an older lawmaker or statesman. (Hey, liberal press–where is the “gravitas” buzzword from the 2000 election.) There are those who won’t vote for someone so young and unproven.

Can any of his supporters list for me the legislation he has sponsored and passionately fought for in Congress? This lack of achievement in legislation will leave many people wondering why he wants to be president. At the end of the day, you can’t hide from your voting record or lack therof.

Sadly, there are still people in this country who will not vote for an individual based on their race, religion, or sex. While great strides have been made in our nation to ease racial tensions, Mr. Obama will have a great hurdle to overcome, especially in light of Jeremiah Wright’s ranting.

Mr. Obama is charismatic, bright, and articulate. Catchy slogans, big smiles, and promises can win your party’s nomination, but they won’t move you to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

    Good thought’s. I won’t vote for him just cause his name sounds like Bin Laden, but I’m pretty shallow! Good stuff, keep it up!
