Is the country ready for a black President? Is the country ready for Barack Obama?

Not this one. Barack does not have the experience necessary to run this country. He is only a junior senator. He needs a lot more years and experience before he should even consider running for president. I don't care what a person looks like as long as that person is the best qualified individual to become president. I don't even think the good ol' boys are ready for a woman president. We can only hope. Maybe the ticket should be Clinton/Obama? She does have a lot more experience than Barack does.

To me the question is not whether Barack Obama is black, the question would be is he qualified to be president. And I think the answer is yes. He would definitely do a great job as president. But you are right there would be all the talk about him being the first black president. And there is also the question of the first female president. I would like to see that.
