Who is Barack Obama?


Have you heard the latest rant from John McCain and Sarah Palin? They get in front of their mobs on the campaign trail and whisper, 'Who is Barack Obama?'. I understand why Palin asks the question ... she doesn't read newspapers so her knowledge of politics in the lower 48 is not good. However, I would think that McCain would know who beat him up in two presidential debates ... and who is moppin' the floor with him from coast-to-coast in polls.

Anyhow, I thought that those villagers who are embedded in the McCain/Palin campaign might enjoy watching the video below. It provides a behind-the-scenes look at Barack, Michelle, Joe, Jill and their families.





I hope that this begins to answer the question, 'Who is Barack Obama?' for those that are asking...

He is a better man than me, but of course I'm not a man. However, I would have lost my cool by now, and time and time again he has maintained and kept his eye on the prize. This is just an attempt by the McCain Campaign to knock Obama off message, and guess what it's not working...

Mrs. Grapevine - We've had other Black candidates for POTUS in the past. However, I think that Barack understood that for him to *win* the election he had to be the least Black man in America. He could never afford to be seen as an angry Black man. He definitely has kept his cool and my hope is that he will maintain his composure throughout the election. My dream is for an 8-year Obama term as president to be seen as wildly successful by our citizens and our allies around the world.

A brotha can dream, can't he?
