7. Yes. I believe Obama's alternative cultural composition plays a role.
I hope that doesn't come across wrong.

I strongly believe that the fact that Obama was raised on the other side of the tracks, forgive me, has given him something the other politicians simply do not have.

I don't know how to state this in terms that aren't offensive.

He's Harvard educated, and he's an African American.

And what you said. This cycle is over.

Recall Bush...oh, never mind. Don't recall Bush. I was just going to point out that Obama has common sense, and knows how to use it.
