17. RU KIDDING? I'm supporting an uppity guy with color for higher office?
well, let me just say that his behavior and presence in this contest has been good to very, very good. Not perfect, but no person could be. Not bad or fair, because for the most part, he has been on message and staying above the fray. As for that unspoken message that hill and bill have been sending,
his prima donna life, his being uppity, his "wright" problem? Only the MSM, some GOPers AND the most dedicated Hillaryians would believe that crap. And most of those votes were never coming his way.

Who knows what will happen in November, but until then, it is a great event unfolding before us. Not just here in the US, but in europe, africa and asia. Watching the growing pains, the race issues, and religious conflicts be resolved by a spasm of democracy is truly wondrous.
