How could anyone expect an inexperienced person like Obama, who has never held a real job, or management position, in his life? My understanding is that he was a Constitutional expert and his losses in front of the Supreme Court suggest he wasn't very strong in that area either.In 2008, Obama won on the all-important economy issue (53%-44%), as well as on a number of less important issues. Race actually proved a very tiny factor according to the exit polls.
Here's what Geraldine Ferraro had to sayHarry Reid..Ms. Ferraro, the former congresswoman and vice-presidential candidate who backs Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton, told The Daily Breeze, a newspaper in Torrance, Calif.: “If Obama was a white man, he would not be in this position. And if he was a woman of any color, he would not be in this position. He happens to be very lucky to be who he is. And the country is caught up in the concept.”Joe Biden.The authors quote Reid as saying privately that Obama, as a black candidate, could be successful thanks, in part, to his "light-skinned" appearance and speaking patterns "with no Negro dialect, unless he wanted to have one."Even as Obama was lightly experienced, Carson has no leadership experience. In the upcoming election that will prove fatal to his candidacy. That his campaign is already falling apart exposes the dangers of one's lacking leadership experience.[/QUOTE]In fact Ben Carson has had far more leadership experience than Barack Obama ever and has led management teams all over the world."I mean, you got the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy," Biden said. "I mean, that's a storybook, man."
But the fact is that the novelty of having a Black President has worn off and Ben Carson is also a Republican or, as many Democrats like to say, an "Uncle Tom". I also doubt very much he will win.
