Geraldine Ferraro, of all people, has caused a stir by saying that Barack Obama would not be where he is today (frontrunner for Democratic nomination for President of the United States) if he were not black. Ms. Ferraro, despite a lack of obvious qualifications, was Walter Mondale's chioice ofr the Vice Presidential nomination way back when (Mondale lost in a landslide).
Would Geraldine Ferraro have been chosen to be the Vice Presidential nominee if she were not a woman? This is why Gerlaldine Ferraro's comments about Barack Obama make one think of glass houses and stones. For that matter, would Hillary Clinton be where she is if she were not Bill Clinton's WIFE?
Botton line: Barack Obama is objectively not qualified to be President of the United States. He does not have the experience. He, himself, said that very thing (inclulding that he would not be "comfortable" asking people to vote for someone who had just become a Senator) when he was asked about nation aspirations after his election to the Senate from Illinois. Race may have something to do with why the media does not seem to recognize that, but it is hardly necessary to talk about race.
You should simply consider Barack Obama on his merits. On that basis, he fails to have the qualifications to be considered for President.
