Obama to form exploratory committee for presidential run
Quote:

Democratic Sen. Barack Obama said Tuesday he is taking the initial step in a presidential bid that could make him the nation's first black to occupy the White House.

Obama announced on his Web site, www.barackobama.com, that he was filing a presidential exploratory committee. He said he would announce more about his plans in his home state of Illinois on Feb. 10.

"I certainly didn't expect to find myself in this position a year ago," Obama said in a video posting. "I've been struck by how hungry we all are for a different kind of politics. So I've spent some time thinking about how I could best advance the cause of change and progress that we so desperately need."
Take your pick.

I am looking forward to this.

08AMA!

I'm leaning towards Biden right now, he seems to have things together, but we'll see in time who's the better custodian to clean up after W.

Can I just say that I hate the use of "black" as a noun? Why can't they just add a single extra word, "the nation's first black man to occupy the White House?"

I'd totally vote Obama if i could vote, unless Edwards runs.

When does any candidate answer this question: When do we go after bin Laden? This is a question asked to identify anti-Americans. How do they respond? They remain quiet (because they are equally as scummy as a president they worship).

Bin Laden survives because .... 85% of all problems are directly traceable to top management.

We haven't all forgotten about the plagarism scandal, you know.

Bullitt 01-17-2007 03:06 PM

I hadn't heard about that before wolf, just googled it and it won't keep him from my vote. I see the leading potential in him and that is what matters in a presidential candidate.

Biden, WIKI;
Quote:

After Biden withdrew from the race, it was learned that he had correctly credited Kinnock on other occasions but failed to do so in an Iowa speech that was recorded and distributed to reporters by aides to Michael Dukakis, the eventual nominee. Dukakis fired the senior aide responsible, but the damage had already been done to Biden. [7] [8]

It had also been alleged that Biden had plagiarized while in law school 20 years earlier in a first-year legal-writing class. Unaware of appropriate standards for legal briefs at the beginning of his legal training, Biden used a single footnote rather than multiple citations required to cite five pages from a legal article. Both Syracuse University Law School and the Delaware State Bar Association cleared Biden of plagiarism charges.
I'm more concerned about the two brain aneurysms. :eyebrow:

I grew up in DE, and I've actually met Joe several times. There are a lot of good things to say about him, but I won't say any of them. Just cuz he's a democrat and tw pissed me off :D

I thought that was Bill Klitoon`s claim to fame?
