Default a woman or a black man for president?

the front runners for the democrats so far are barack obama and hillary rodham clinton...

is the country ready for a woman as president
before a black man

or would it prefer a black man over a woman?

the question will be important if the democrats dont want to botch up another campaign.

what do you think?

It's a shame this question must be asked. A candidates race, gender, sexual orientation, or religion should not play a role in his/her's political career. However, I do recognize there are many ignorant people in this country who would disagree with that statement. I cannot speak for the entire country, but it seems here in Appalachia more people would be less opposed to a female candidate.

I myself support Obama BTW

From who i have met, people's reasons for not liking obama arent racial related but for hilary it is sex-related.

So i think the country is MORE ready for a black man than a white woman.

But I am going for Obama. Women provide the excuse that he has no experience but you dont need experience to get into the White house (see Bush).

Wouldn't it be better to have both?


I think the half-white guy has a shot at it. I personally would rather vote for the Condoleeza Rice, who is a real American black, if she were to run.

Hilary.

Bill is the best Presidential advisor there is. As a matter a fact ever been. It'd be like if he was President indirectly. He was agood president.

I prefer Obama but think that Hilary will win over him simply because she's more well known, and being married to Bill is a huge advantage.

Obama makes me believe in politics again. He gives you hope when he speaks.

Hillary.....i just don't trust her.

But on the flip side, it would be nice to have Bill in the White House again
