I am dismayed too.

Heck, it might be cool to have chittlins and fried chicken, neck bones and collard greens at the next official presidents dinner gala.

And dont forget chilluns we have the watermellon eating contest on the white house lawn.

Scratch that "I aint livin in no white house'

"Amos, change the name of this place to The Black House".

"Amos what is those red buttons for?"

Oh! "They must be for calling my white servants."

Push 'em all Amos.

"Oh Crap" "Amos go get the official Black House stretch limo and lets go for a ride".

"We'll tell them we was gone and someone musta snucked in and pushed those dang buttons".

"Dont forget that box of KFC Amos."

Maybe the American voters are beginning what the clinton name truly stands for. Lies deception and false promises and more.

Using the White House for unethical parties. Setting immoral standards for our youth and more.

Clinton campaign bosses should not be surprised.

Aw "Come on Missus Victoria, eyes just jokin'".

I'm all for a black man in the White house.

Sounds like a fun time to me.

I was wondering just who would be the vice president though?

Would it be Jesse or Al or how about the head of the Naacp Chief Mfume or maybe one of those Black Muslims.

Mfume just retired from the Naacp with a line about how he would "LOVE" to help in the White House.

I'm sure he has lots of relatives to fill the numerous white house staffing jobs, ofcourse their credentials may leave a little wanting.

"Hey" "There aint no swaming pool here"

"Don't you worry none Amos", "there will be by tommorree".

Medicine Bow is an embarrassment for sure. But most Americans aren't afraid to vote for a non-white. But, unfortunately, Obama is not the person for many of us. He's so liberal he's borderline socialist. I'd vote for any race or gender as long as they are the right person. Obama and Hillary are not the ones though.

He can win the nomination, the Muslim will never get elected. He's too inexperienced and he needed Oprah to tell everyone to vote for him. Is he going to call her when he needs advice? Everyone knows she's going to be in the White House whenever she wants. Is this who you want as President?

Kerrey: Endorsed Hillary, but loves Obama too

Former senator Bob Kerrey, criticized for maybe talking a little too much about Obama's Muslim ancestry and exotic name during an Iowa swing over the weekend to endorse Hillary, has apologized to Obama. He's a Christian, but an Internet smear campaign has suggested he's a Muslim.

Kerrey, per AP: "What I found myself getting into in Iowa -- and it was my own fault -- it was the wrong moment to do it and it was insulting. I meant no disrespect at all." And also: "I answered a question about your qualifications to be president in a way that has been interpreted as a backhanded insult of you. I assure you I meant to do just the opposite."

Of course, the apology keeps alive a story that Obama would probably just as soon have go away. Kerrey said the Clinton campaign had nothing to do with his original remarks, and nothing to do with the apology. And he throws this in:

"You are exceptionally qualified by experience and judgment to be President of the United States. I do not doubt that you would use the power of the Presidency to bring peace and prosperity to as many people as possible on our fragile planet. You inspire my highest hopes for that office’s potential: That it be used as a force for good in America and the world."

But -- doesn't Hillary argue that Obama is inexperienced? So why, exactly, did Kerrey endorse her? Full text of the letter after the jump.

KERRY LETTER TO OBAMA

I want to sincerely apologize for the remarks I made on Sunday in Council Bluffs, Iowa, after an event at which I endorsed Senator Hillary Clinton’s Presidential candidacy. I answered a question about your qualifications to be President in a way that has been interpreted as a backhanded insult of you. I assure you I meant to do just the opposite.
After you and I met during your primary campaign for the Senate, I wrote a public letter in which I said that that you were among the two or three most talented people I have ever met in politics. Nothing in your performance in the Senate or your campaign for the Presidency has altered that view.
The question I was asked in Iowa on Sunday was something like this:“Senator Kerrey, you ran for President in your first term in the Senate. If you were qualified, why isn’t Senator Obama?” With the benefit of my computer’s capacity to make certain that my words reflect my belief let me answer that question in this letter which you are free to use anyway you choose.
You are exceptionally qualified by experience and judgment to be President of the United States. I do not doubt that you would use the power of the Presidency to bring peace and prosperity to as many people as possible on our fragile planet. You inspire my highest hopes for that office’s potential: That it be used as a force for good in America and the world.
It is your capacity to inspire hope that is your greatest God given talent. Without spending a dime of tax payer’s money or changing a single law your presence in the Oval Office will send a clear and compelling message to four groups of people who will be altered for good as a consequence. That was what I was trying to say on Sunday and what I hope I said more clearly in this letter.
Again, I am sorry for the insult and wish you the best on January 3 and beyond.
Merry Christmas to you and your family.

Do you honestly believe Oprah's influence carried over in Iowa where the voting democrat votes case were broken down 94% white 6% other races?

Does Oprah have that much influence on the typical white middle class rural farmer?
