What Obama Got Right
Obama's response to the question posed to Biden (and the response Biden gave to it) on race was one of the finest moments I have seen in any Presidential debate in either a Primary or the General Election in any of the 50 or so years I've been paying attention. It raised both Senators Obama and Biden a notch in my book, fine gentlemen both.

2. So now we know why Obama is creeping up
People are trying to say this presidents race is not racist but that is 100% wrong.

CNN said a nation wide survey has proved that Obama's support is coming mostly from blacks. Now this place was alive with the accusations when Hillary was speaking before women's groups etc., all they could say is it was sexist. She's trying to get the women's vote..blah blah blah.

Now black people have a right to vote for who they want the same as women. But why is it not racist for blacks to vote for blacks and is it wrong and sexist for women to vote for women.

That doesn't make sense. But then anything in Obama's favor according to his supporters is OK>

3. According to the US Census Bureau, only 2.3% of Iowa residents are black.
Where's the rest of Obama's Iowa support coming from?
