Today, Bill Richardson joined the parade of mostly white, male politicians endorsing Barack Obama. I find it interesting that the guy who benefited so much from the Clinton administration, decided to endorse Barack Obama, instead of Hillary Clinton. Why? Because the boys club of Washington does NOT want a woman in the White House. They think it’s good enough that we have Nancy Pelosi as Speaker of the House, 3rd in line from the Presidency. The good news is that we’re only a heart attack and an assassination* away from having a woman president. The bad news is that this scenario is highly unlikely. (more…)

I noticed that there’s a picture of John Edwards on Hillary Clinton’s myspace page. I wonder if this means that Edwards is going to endorse Clinton. I actually would love to see Edwards back in the game, as a VP. I’m only speculating that he might endorse Clinton but if he does, I wonder if it means that he’ll be Hillary’s pick for VP. And I know that the media is riding high on the Obama bandwagon, but Clinton is not out. She’s leading in Ohio, Pennsylvania and Texas. Speaking of Texas, I know that the Latino vote is leaning overwhelmingly towards Clinton. I just want Latino voters to come out on election day and actually vote.
Amongst my generation Obama seems to be the more popular choice. He’s obviously charismatic and intelligent, both necessary qualities for a good leader (although our current leader is missing the “intelligent” quality, but that’s besides the point). He gives great speeches. He’s got Oprah’s endorsement. And he’s light-skinned enough not to scare of too many white folks. He’s the perfect black candidate to run for office. But for some strange reason, Obama does not excite me. I say strange because typically I’m very excited by all things black or with any hint of color. But Barack just doesn’t do it for me. (more…)
What is wrong with middle America. I can’t believe that the republicans in Iowa chose Huckabee as the nominee. Aside from Huckabee’s conservative social agenda and evangelical background, do these people really want someone by the name of “Huckabee” potentially the president of United States? And I really hope it doesn’t come to this. But unfortunately if it ends up being a Huckabee vs. Obama race we might end up with another republican in the White House. (more…)
