26. This is what I don't understand: how did B. Clinton make Obama the BLACK candidate?
Correct me if I'm wrong, but Obama became the black candidate the moment he announced his candidacy. He certainly wasn't limited to being just a black candidate, but that is certainly part of his candidacy. I'm bothered by his double standard when it comes to the issue of race in this campaign. He's allowed to say things that the Clintons can't. I don't buy that and neither should you.

And you shouldn't confuse intelligence with ethics. History is littered with people with high intelligence and questionable ethics. If I wanted to question Obama's intelligence I would have done so directly, but I find him to be very intelligent. It certainly wouldn't be the first time an intelligent person used that intelligence to manipulate the masses, now would it?
