BARAK OBAMA - THE DEMOCRAT CHOICE ?

Illinois junior Senator Barak Obama has stolen the spotlight for the 2008 Democrat Party bid for the Presidency from Hillary and is gaining in his popularity as a Democrat hopeful. I have followed politics for a long time and have not seen this type of , "orgasmic, " reaction to a Democrat candidate since 1968 and Bobby Kennedy. Please excuse the somewhat off color description but as I hear reporters and leaders within the party speak about Obama, "orgasmic, " is the only way to totally describe the response. Last Sunday Obama visited New Hampshire the location of the first primary and 1500 people came to hear him speak which by most counts is a large number for any political gathering in New Hampshire especially this far from and election. Every report I heard of the event both by the journalist reporting and the people who attended that were interviewed spoke in breathless tones as if they had just experienced the most exciting time of their life and had been in the presence of royalty! Only a matter of months ago the Junior Senator from New York who I refer to as the Hildabeast but who is better know as Hillary Clinton was spoken of as the shoe in for the nomination by the Democrat Party and no one else need run because she had a lock on the candidacy. In recent months though polling of liberals and the far left wing in the party have been less than favorable for Hillary with some actually placing her at the bottom of a list of possible nominees for the Democrats.

Barak Obama first came to prominence in the party during the 2004 Democrat Convention when he delivered a speech that captivated the audience and even then heads were turning toward a possible Presidential bid. During the course of this year as the field has expanded to include a number of Democrat unknowns and several wannabes combined with the falling popularity in liberal circles of Hillary, Obama's stock has risen to almost superstar status. So what are the Presidential qualifications of this great hope for the Democrats ? Let's see he has been a Senator for two years and he is a very dynamic speaker and umm let's see did I mention that he has been a Senator for two years, oh and hey he's been a Senator for two years......I think you get my point. His foreign policy experience consists of being against the war and his domestic policy experience consists of being a Senator for two years... did I mention that ? Yet the Democrats are treating him like a political superstar who can win the Presidency, with the media and party members responding with similar excitement.

When Bobby Kennedy ran in 1968 he too was a junior Senator from New York and had only been in the Senate for just three years but his political experience and resume' was vast including United States Attorney General during the JFK Presidency and for nearly one year under Johnson. Prior to that throughout the fifties Kennedy was a member of several Senate subcommittees and committees and was best known as a champion in the Senate against organized crime. Yet Democrats are reacting to Obama as they did to RFK in 1968 and many are even comparing Obama to Kennedy. During the 1988 Vice Presidential debates VP candidate Lloyd Bentson attacked then VP candidate Dan Quayle when he mentioned the Senate record of John Kennedy and that he had attended more votes then JFK. Bentson then quipped, " Senator, you are no Jack Kennedy." This same response is quite appropriate in the comparison of Barak Obama to Bobby Kennedy, " Senator Obama, you are no Bobby Kennedy. " Obama's rise to prominence and in many circles as the Democrat front runner will make the next year and one half until the primary a very interesting time to be an observer of liberal election politics. Whether Obama can survive the primary process remains to be seen. But frankly if he does and wins the nomination I see absolutely no way that Senator Barak Obama junior Senator from the state of Illinois will ever become the next President of the United States.

I personally dont see all the excitement about Obama, he is a good speaker, but he lack's something.

And like you said he has only been a senator for two years, two years, I meant two years.

And with Hillary's war machine? Obama doesnt stand a chance when she get's through with him.

Going to be a real fire work's show leading up to election 2008, break out the popcorn lol.

It won't be Hill. It won't be Obama. If you want to know the liberal plan...just ask me.

This Barak vs Clinton is just so much media fluff. If you guys have any serious bones in your bodies, do not let yourself be distracted.

Obama will have to wait at least 3 national election cycles, and probably 4, before he gets even the nomination. But it will happen. That's what's going on now, the laying of the groundwork. But I shouldn't be telling you guys this. I should encourage you all to follow the many media Haily's Comets.

It is way too early to decide who is going to win the Democratic or Republican nominations for 2008.

While political junkies are already starting to get focused on 2008, the bottom line is that we are still about a year away from really even being able to make a reasonable guess about who the nominees will be.

I like Obama, but I won't decide on who should be the nominee for more than a year. I will say this though, spending years in the Senate is not the path to become president. So, I would not be surprised if Obama ends up as governor of Illinois in 4 years to gain executive experience. But, who really knows?

The last senator elected president was Jack K.

It won't be Hill, gang. I'm giving you the goods, and you don't apreciate it. Hill will be the most exciting # 2 you will ever seen in your lifetimes. You will live to see history made, hopefully.

Ah, but a "drafted" former VP? How irresistable is that? Idiots will register to vote for that combo just for the bread and circus!

Like I've written here before, Gore/Clinton is book-end symetry. Symytry (sic) appeals even to the reptilian brain.

I really shouldn't be telling you guys this stuff. I don't want to give you guys a head start, but at the same time, I like Ken & Co., and I wouldn't be anything less than honest with you.

Rotflmao!!!! (spews coffee on keyboard)

Uh, sorry. Chuckle. Ahem.

Having listened to an Obama speech or two, all I hear is the same gamut of Utopian promises all Democrats always make, but never seem to deliver on, fashioned as though they each will have the power, if elected, to singlehandedly pass a bill. Good example: The "Draft Obama" video.

However, having spent a lot of time in Chicago the last couple of years and knowing how popular he is there, I have to agree, as uncharacteristic as it may seem, with Rob. I could see Obama elected governor of Illinois sooner than getting the nomination to run for POTUS, and having the managerial background and seasoning of a governorship is historically a surer resume item (you have to be a captain before you can be an admiral) with the voting public than a seat in Congress.

A couple of terms as governor might get him the Dem nomination, after which, hopefully, he'd lose the election to a staunch conservative.

"You got nuthin but purile ad hominem."

And you have nothing but baseless assertions, made up stories, and ZERO sources. This is why no one takes you seriously, including your cute little observations about politics.

"comment moderation, ken. there's no use in get your ass handed to you by me."

The floor has been mopped with you repeatedly. You have about as much ability to carry on a coherant debate as your sister mudkitty, who asserts now that I'm higher than a kite, a typical tactic of reverting to insults once one is backed into a corner by their own stupidity.

Wow, that was intelligent Kevron. And I suppose you think you're a supreme sleuth because you figured out my real name and website which I purposely posted on my profile for all the world to see. That's insider stuff there.

The midterms should have taught you something. The whole Dems didn't win, Repubs lost argument is quite true. We have but a two party system, and the only alternative to status quo was the Dems. Point I am making here though is that Americans showed that they were pissed off and wanted too see something new. Corruption, scandal, earmarks, and more from both sides of the aisle and I am not alone in being really mad at our government as a whole. Your argument that his lack of experience makes him useless is, well, useless. Lack of experience can mean lack of time to become bought, corrupted, and jaded, and might very well be what exactly makes him the winner in the end.
