Goggle "Barack Obama's pastor", and read about what his church espouses.

Obama is NOTHING more than a motivation speaker. I was thinking that myself a couple days ago, that he is basically just a motivational speaker. I was looking at a speech he had made. He didn't say anything, but he sure was eloquent about it.

Remember what they did to Harold Ford? Who thinks America has changed in the last 14 months? I might be surprised. But even after Watergate, 45 million Americans still voted for Nixon.

Caroline Kennedy doesn't seem very inspiring. She sounds unexcited when she says "I feel that same excitement now."

Oh, well. It's the thought that counts, I guess.

Who cares? Hillary Clinton will still get my Vote! I have lost all respect for Caroline Kennedy now.....

I'm with with you Sherri, wonder if her mother was still alive would she still have made this endorsement.
