The only way I would vote for Obama is if Patrick Fitzgerald vets him.

Amen, Bessie; but I wouldn't hold my breath waiting for that.

Well, now that is SILLY, Bessie, with all due respect.
(I'm assuming you're a member of the Democratic party.)
He's our candidate. He did a GREAT speech in Flint Michigan, but the media upstaged him by focusing on Michelle's appearance on the view.
My concern is that the campaign needs the advice of Hillary to get in there. I am convinced she was quarterbacking the 2 successful democratic wins we've had in the last 30 years.
Here's a link to that great speech.
I hope people can stop being distracted by the horse race issues of head scarves and pantyhose and toned arms and bla bla.

Race is not as big an issue as class.
And if there had been anything on the Obama's rise to the political class--prosecutors would have been on it already--Bessie you oughta know this from watching the power structure go after the Clintons before he could execute his domestic policy--they got nothing.
