It was a real pleasure receiving a healthy comment on my comment from Kman. This is was my best experience in intellectual reasoning. Actually, Iam not informed alot about the American voting system and how Americans come to believe or distrust what they hear from the media. I loved the way he argued, his sophisticated language, but not the the insertion of religion into this debatable issue.

America is not the country of Christians only and - furthermore - the sympathy he talked about for the blacks is completely different from saying yes to a black president. Here in Texas, the idea that a black man is going to rule America still seems stunning. Man is man anywhere - prejudices are like genes...they grow with us as they are part of our self assessment. After all, Obama's ideals, what he had to disclose and hide are all part of politics. He should be judged later on, by the criteria of fulfilled or unfulfilled promises. Now that he is a president - a revolutionary step in itself - let us just wish him unbiased thinking and impartiality. Wish him luck please. He needs it.
