Reporter: Why have you ruled that out - running nationally?<quoted text>Obama was the fifth youngest and least experienced candidate ever elected to that office. Kennedy served nearly fifteen years in Congress and Clinton served as a Governor for nearly fifteen years. It is not racist to recognize that Obama didn't even complete one term in the Senate and basically had no over experience.
Obama: I am a firm believer is knowing what youíre doing when you apply for a job. And, I think that if I were to seriously consider running on a national ticket, I would essentially have to start now, before having served a day in the senate. Now there are some people who are comfortable doing that. Iím not one of those people.
