Well Jennifer I hope you are right about him, and I am wrong. I don't get that impression from him and appearances can be deceiving. He dropped Reverend Wright like a hot potatoe after going to his church for twenty odd years, and after he said he wouldn't.  His voting record shows a consumate politician always seeming to avoid the controversial votes and his platform is one of catch phrases with very little substance. 

I hate to say this... because it a wonderful thing that young people are excited about a politician and getting involved, but I think he is going to dissapoint a lot of people and inevitabably turn another generation away from politics. Like I said, I hope I am wrong.  But when the Right Wing Propaganda machine gets a hold of him... think about it.

Unknown,

The right wing propaganda machine can say what it wants about him, but unless there is a decent economy, people don't listen to it.  I read a poll that said that 85% of the people think the U.S. is going in the wrong direction.  You think people are going to vote for the status quo (McCain) with numbers like that? 

As for dropping Reverend Wright, if he was really just doing it to do what's in his best political interest, he would have dropped him immediately, back when those tapes first showed up.  I'm surprised he held onto him as long as he did.
