Race is only part of this race because the racist Barack Obama makes it so.

Go back to Lake Wobegon.

Keillor, more and more, you're just irritating. You're best stuff is about your deep introspection and eccentric life. Lay off politics and judgements about others. We're grown-ups and can make our own choices and most of us know who we are and who others are, too. We don't need guidance.

Obama is racist? That's insane. Where does that judgment come from?(From a hardworking white person - thanks for that label, Hillary.)

Vote for the candidate who is best for the job. Okay, there's not much to choose from, both are pretty unimpressive. I watched Obama on TV the other day giving a speech and it seemed as if he only repeated the name of where he was to get adulatory cheers. Perhaps a symptom of the level of intelligence of the audience rather than him, but depressing nevertheless. McCain seems to be unravelling before our eyes. As I say, not an inspiring prospect either way.

Nevertheless, vote for what the man represents. The colour of his skin should not be an issue.
