The Similarities between Obama and McCain

Posted by kelliasworld on November 6, 2008

Obama is smarter than Bush, in more emotional control than McCain and a better speaker than both of them put together. Black people have reason to be proud that one of their own has reached the White House. But progressives are kidding themselves if they think he is going to make major changes in our direction once he gets there. And expecting that he will because he is black or because he is a Democrat is just so much useless Identity Politics again.

He and Palin should have been that gracious during the campaign. They may have let an angry genie out of the bottle that may be very difficult to put back, no matter how much McCain may now want it. McCain said he looked forward to seeing Palin’s future service to Alaska, the party and the nation. I look forward to her disappearing from the national stage.
