Who would Obama be?

Pat Buchanan: People are interested in Barack Obama because he's an African American! And Ferraro - I've talked to women who are angry and bitter because they think that their girl - Hilary Clinton - is getting the shaft from the media because they've fallen in love with an African American!

Me: What a crock! They're not interested in him because he's African American - they're interested in him because he's charismatic, because he gives great speeches, because he writes good books, because he has good ideas, because he's had a good record in the state and national Senate, because he's charming and funny and can turn a good argument. If Obama had been a white guy with all of the attributes he has now-

My Lovely Wife (MLW): He'd be Bill Clinton?

Me: .... Yes.
