Does anyone disagree that Barack will be the next US president?
I first saw him on 'Oprah' whilst I was in Canada a year ago. I sat glued and I rarely watch the show! He was so inspiring that I bought his book 'The Audacity of Hope'. This was his second book. The first was 'Dreams from My Father' which earned him enough to pay off his law school debts and buy him a house as he worked in Chicago for a pittance. I predicted the sales of his second book would help finance a run for president and I was chuffed when he nominated! He's not accepted any donations from lobbyists but from public donations which IMO give ownership by the donors to 'the cause'. A brilliant strategy!
My Canadian friends tell me Barack is the favourite in Calgary.
My best friend is American and lives in Orange County CA and insists Hillary will win and Barack will be VP. "We are ready for a woman as president but not a black man!"
David E Kelly dedicated an episode of Boston Legal last season to promote Obama, where the theme was basically about racism and 'political correctness' when Denny Crane was impressed with a black law graduate and told him he spoke like a white man. During the balcony epilogue segment Denny Crane announced Obama would be make a good president. "Anyone but Hillary". So it's not just Oprah who believes in Obama and has promoted him to the voter reluctant American public.
