color has nothing to do with it

it's because Barack Obama speaks with intelligence, thoughtfulness and candor. Compare this speech with Bush's press conference today. Obama is capable of expressing complex ideas and acknowledges that ideas can conflict, and that we can live with contradiction. Bush speaks in short, clear, definite terms that greatly oversimplify complex situations.

I consider Clinton a viable candidate for the presidency, but I would still vote for Obama. The Clintons have too much history behind them, too much shadiness, too much oiliness. I may be pro-Obama simply for a lack of history, but I like him better than John Kerry.
