[b] He needs to hang it up. A majority of Americans don't want a thinker in the whitehouse. The Democratic party has to find some southern yokle who calls himself a Democrat to run.
Stop all this talk about Obama. I agree he would be a great candidate, if he was white. But lets be honest here, there is no chance in hell a black person will be elected president anytime in the near future. There is too much racism, especially in less populated areas. People may not even consciencly know it, but deepdown they will not support him.
I'm sick of you Republicans trying to offer Democrats advice on how to win next time. Don't you see what you are doing? Don't you think for a second that by reiterating the GOP talking points that you are simply trying to stir more hatred towards Democrats? Take for example, after the election, the GOP comes out and says the American people were tired of being looked down upon. I can't tell you how many times I've heard that crap. The people we look down upon are not our base, so screw them. The GOP has all the answers, they are trying to act as a "mentor" on how to win elections. The democrats don't need their advice, thank you.
I do not support Hillary for the same reason as Obama, there is too much predjudice against women for her to be elected. Plus you Republicans hate her more than any Democrat I can think of. You guys were even saying you wouldn't mind if Kerry one because it would ensure Hillary couldn't run for another 8 years. I can't imagine the smear campaign you guys would launch agaist her.

I know you're just being sarcastic about most Americans wanting a thinker in the White House.
The Demoscratic party doesn't need a Southern yokel, just not a pompous, rich traitor from New England with no ideas that hasn't a clue how anyone other than New England lives and thinks.
I agree Obama sadly won't be elected because of his race.
Now, do you realize that you said it's crap that you're looking down on people as the GOP says... and then you turn around and say "The people we're looking down on..."? That makes no sense unless I'm missing something. THEN in the same statement you say that the people you're looking down on "aren't our bas, so screw them." Well, that's exactly what the people that weren't your base thought Kerry were saying... and they didn't vote for him. It seems that the Democrats DO indeed need some advice. Maybe they should humbly take it from the people who won.
I disagree with your comparison of Abama to Hillary. I think there's far less prejudice against women as there is against people of color. I think the biggest fear Americans would have with having an African American president (right or wrong) is that his/her policies would be SO redically slanted towards the benefit of his/her race.
