Is Obama too inexperienced. . . or too black to win?

May 27, 2008

Before you get your underwear in a bunch over this post’s title, take a deep breath and say, “jack likes Barack” ten times.  Jack rogers is certainly no racist (did I just reference myself in the third person?).

This question is posed because of a Memorial Day conversation, when a relative suggested that she would not vote for Barack Obama, even though she prefers a Democrat, because he’s too inexperienced.  A breath later she said she believes Obama could be assasinated, if he wins.  (Hmm, sound familiar?)

This got me to thinking.  For the fence-sitters out there who might otherwise lean toward Obama over John McCain, what might ultimately change their minds on election day — Obama’s inexperience or the fact that he’s black?
