And here comes the race card. What a joke! Obama himself is a self described racist. Read his book.

I am white and I will vote for him. I unlike KOB-TV feel that color doesn't indicate how much someone is qualified to do the job. Otherwise you wouldn't have printed the story. I also think it is kind of shady that Palin refuses to answer questions pertaining to the investigation against her when she has went on tape earlier saying she would answer ay questions.

I'm not voting for him, but it has absolutely NOTHING to do with his color or religious preference.

How sad. 1958 mentality over competence and hope. The economy is falling like a rock in the lake, but these fools choose the old white guy and his stewardess over the possibility that something could be different in the future. If people chose McCain on principles, fine. I could deal with that. But to vote AGAINST someone, especially based on RACE, nonsense.

Sure, sure...I'm not voting for him because he's insane...he'll be assassinated if he is elected, and the reason why has everything to do with race.

Agreed! I remember when Kennedy was running and kids in school in discussions said their parents wouldn't vote for him because he was a Catholic.

Anything other than the issues is sheer ignorance.

I also think it's odd that your Presidential candidate won't answer any questions either. We still have a ton of them, now that you guys have traced McCain back to birth and Palin back to a small school child, what was Obama organizing and leading in Chicago? Where is his Birth Certificate? Has he read Michelle's dissertation or is that in the 20 year period that he can't remember Wright's hate speeches? We have many more questions he won't answer.

Then why did you mention skin color?

It is so sad prejudice still has a factor on skin color and race! This sort of attitude is inherited which is a lack of education! I am white and I am voting for Obama! I see a person with good upbringing, young, new ideas, a model family and doesn't carry excess baggage! What he want to offer this country is more than what McCain or any other Republican can offer this country; see the mess they have created for us in the past 8 years! The worst in the history of America!

We are voting for McCain on merit. We can't find anyone that is more conservative or we might vote for him/her over McCain. We are not fond of Queers, AIDS, STD's, Same sex marriage, abortions on demand, Cigars in the Whitehouse, North American Man/Boys, Anti-Military thinking and Presidents with no service, the 'We Loathe the Military' Democrats, Tax increases, World wide poor feeding in countries that have sworn to kill all Americans. Skin color doesn't come into it.

Some of these people are attacking the Black Muslim because you guys are attacking Sarah, her Husband, her children, her hobbies, McCain being horny after 5 1/2 years of Prison camp and getting remarried to a healthy woman but taking care of the first wife to this day, and every silly claim you can make. One guy is making up fake Palin quotes and said that Sarah said she could see Iran from her house. You guys could go a long way to lower the wick too.

If only more people decided on which candidate to vote based on their stance on the issues rather than on skin color, religion or other factor that does not matter in an elected official.

Kudos to those that vote for the right reasons.
