I would not mind waking up to his voice on NPR every morning and his pretty face on the front page on the newspaper.
THIS is the reason he can win all across America (Sunday's game notwithstanding).
Barack Hussein Obama was ...
Enough with the middle name, Eli. Totally unnecessary, unless your middle name is Bill O'Reilly.
I'm thinking it also would be appropriate to refer to Mitt Romney from here on out as "Mitt Willard Romney."
More middle names found here.
Keep hip-hop alive with live links.
But, as Fox News reported, Obama has been seen dressed JUST LIKE AHMADINEJAD (i.e., a dark business suit, white shirt open at the collar, no tie), which, combined with his middle name, clearly proves he's a terrorist.
If you didn't see The Daily Show's take on this linguistic bullshit, boy, did you miss out. Even more brilliant than normal. That being said, with the way that the GOP's implosion is continuing and accelerating, the Democrats could nominate a retarded monkey and still win.
I wood like to annownse my candidassy for prezedent of the yoonighted states of amarika.
chicken pot chicken pot chicken pot piiiiiie.
He'll make a great VP for Gore or Dean.
p.s. he smokes. in case you didn't know. which is fine for a VP - heck, look at Cheney.
I wonder if Obama has ever wore an army jacket? 'Cause if he has, we can link him to Osama even closer! Someone call Faux News. Quick!
John Sidney McCain, born in Coco Solo Panama. Got a beat you can dance to it.
@12 - well, Bush wore a flight suit - you know how well that worked out ...
seriously, though, is this country ready for not only a black president, but one with such an ethnic name, a last name that sounds so similar to "Osama" and a middle name of Hussein? I mean, people were joking in 04 that Kucinich didn't make it because his name was just too damn hard to say (and no, I can't even spell it...)
and yes, this guy is hot...
This is cool- Barack Obama's mother graduated from Mercer Island High School.
He's practically a Seattlelite!

Obama is definitely near the top of my list. I'd love to finally see a black president. I'm not sure if a racial minority, or even a woman, can really be elected in this country, but to me he seems like he's got a good chance.
His only honest criticism seems to be that he has only served one term in the senate, and lacks experience. I'm sure the republicans will hound him over it (along with the silly shit like his middle name and comparing his wardrobe to leaders of the axis of evil). But we can see where all of Bush's (supposed) foreign policy experience, along with the foreign policy experience of all his advisers, has gotten us. With experience like that, I'll take someone with less experience, thank you.
The guy is a fantastic speaker, which I think counts for a lot. I can see little downside to Obama.
Pull your head out of your ass - Dean is not running (and I say that as a hard-core Deaniac). Now Gore could still run, but Dean is d o n e, and in a better position pushing the 50-state strategy in the DNC.
i see little downside to obama, either. basically his race, his name, and his experience. i think the first two are inconsequential. nobody in numbers large enough to be statistically important cares about someone's race anymore. the name thing? pfsh, whatever. The experience thing? This is more tricky because one could actually make the argument that bush is representative of what lack of experience brings you because being the gov of texas, he came into the presidency with ZERO experience. That said, any attacks from the right that say "oh, well this guy can't get it done internationally" are going to be IGNORED by everyone but the like 26% of people who still think bush is doing a heck of a job. republicans don't have much credibility right now, so any of their attacks aren't going to carry as much weight as they did post 9/11. democrats need to realize this and step up. I think that if you really want to point to a senator with limited international experience, look at JFK. problem solved.
I mean, people were joking in 04 that Kucinich didn't make it because his name was just too damn hard to say
Uh ... the joke I heard about the Kucinich campaign was the fact that he was running.
@18 - just saying. But I just checked and there are two news items in the national press about Gore running and having no problem doing so.
Barack will make a fine VP.
