Senator Barack Obama

Can someone explain to me this fascination with Barack Obama. I saw his speech two years ago at the Democratic National Convention before he was elected for Senator, and I understand he is a great public speaker. But, why is anyone seriously talking about him running for President in two years before he even serves one full term as a Senator? I know he is a graduate of Harvard Law, and don’t get me wrong, I would like to see another Irish Senator become President. But, shouldn’t someone have more political experience on a national level than four years as a Senator?

Let him finish his term, then run for governor, then the White House.

Why all the hub-bub? Because he's young, smart, attractive, charismatic, not afraid to talk about his faith, has a great back-story, no baggage (that we know of), and doesn't usually talk a snarky, nasty political line.

And 'cause the Democrats bring nothing more than Hillary to the table..

Your description could fit almost anyone under the age of 50. I thought you were talking about me there. But, the only difference is that Obama has been a senator for almost two years. That doesn’t make him Presidential ready.
