ANYWAYS, dunno about the whole black or women president thing. It's easy to think so, but who knows, racism is "so pass?", will it really play a role? Polls put him ahead, and he did well in all white states, meaning that at least a huge chunk of the population isn't racist. Besides, Obama is so... unblack in the traditional American sense of the word. His mom is white, he was raised by white grandparents, and his dad was a Kenyan, not a slave. He spent his youth in Hawaii and Indonesia. He seems almost foreign
, and that might be the problem.
As for a women president? I don't know, I don't see how Americans would be less likely than Argentines, Chileans, Nicaraguans, Germans, or Brits at electing a woman leader. I mean, seriously, is there a particular reason why Americans would be more machista
than other nationalities? Maybe, but I don't see the connection.
All in all, I hope (as probably 90% of the rest of the world does) that Obama wins, if at least so that those freaks from the PNAC get out of formulating foreign policy. Although, on the other hand, it's not as though Democrats have a particularly less historically brutal foreign policy record, but it would at least be an improvement? Maybe? Hopefully? In either case it looks as though it's really gonna be a crazy Democratic year, and their gonna win a bunch of seats everywhere (they've already won a handful of new ones, haven't they?), so unless Phakiel is right and people are still too racist, I would imagine the guy's gonna win.
