The 2008 race for the White House has begun in earnest, and Barack Obama is positioned as no black man in the history of this nation has been. Unlike Uncle Colin, he will really man-up, step out on faith, and run for the job he ain’t ready for.
I never thought I would be under 40 and see this day. Barack Obama polls second to Hillary in a Presidential Poll. This is breathtaking and heartbreaking at the same time. The Audacity of Hype surrounding this brotha have been almost too much for a skeptical brotha like me to take in. I have put my best advice out there and have urged caution and restraint. It doesn’t look like it will be headed.
I fear they will destroy him. I don’t want to see that happen. Thank God we have a fallback candidate in Deval Patrick. From what I can tell, I like him better anyway. However, I am still serious about Obama pursuing the Vice Presidency. I think an apprenticeship is what he needs. I see this frontal assault on the democratic nomination against Hillary as foolhardy in the extreme.
If he makes a final decision, in consultation with his wife and political team to make the run, I’m in too. I had intended to try to get elected a delegate to the next Democratic National Convention anyway. I still sincerely believe that Obama could and should be on the ticket. It won’t happen without a dedicated corps of activists.
Will you become a candidate for delegate to help make this a possiblity? Think about it and let me know. I would love to have your help because it looks like this thing is on and poppin’.
