Barack Obama speaks at the MTV/Myspace forum:

“If I didn’t think I was the best president for the job, I wouldn’t be running. Your next president will believe in the Constitution, which you can’t say about your current president. Part of my job as president I think is to deliver a message that everybody is part of the American family. Not just some people. And obviously as somebody who is African-American — my mother is from Kansas, my father was from Kenya, I grew up in Indonesia, I have a sister who looks Spanish, I’ve got a brother in law who is Chinese-Canadian — I’m very sensitive to making sure that everybody feels a part of America. And that’s one of the things I think I can bring to this presidency. The day I’m inaugurated the country will look at itself differently and I think be more tolerant.

The politics of hope … is not based on us all holding hands and singing ‘Kumbaya’. It is based on the idea that instead of people operating on the basis of fear, instead of people operating on the basis of division, I want people to come together and focus on the problems that we face: health care, education, global warming. We are not going to be able to solve those problems if we don’t talk about them honestly. And we’ve got to have a serious debate. Senator Clinton and I have differences. If I didn’t think I was the best president for the job, I wouldn’t be running. As long as I understand that this is not about either me or her, but this is about the American people and whether they’re getting the kind of leadership they deserve, I think we’ll be just fine. I think democracy is served by a vigorous debate.”

  • Giorgia

    LMAO @ helltothanaw

  • ~Allie.

    People are concerned about his experience but everyone who came b/f him was supposed to be “experienced” and screwed up so I don’t think that is always a good thing. So maybe his lack of experience may help him out b/c he is coming in w/ fresh eyes and a “people” mindset.

    I am rooting for him. I think out of all the black people who have attempted to run he has been taken most seriously but I am not convinced that he will win yet.

  • Giorgia

    Presidential position is the highest in the country, we have no room for training newbies!!

    sorry, we are still in Iraq, Trillions in debt etc

  • Bahama Mama

    @Giogia

    Respectfully….EVERYONE WHO IS A FIRST TIME PRESIDENT IS A “NEWBIE”

    No-president has been really for the “polical machine” that is entitled—LEADER OD THE FREE WORLD!

    We can freely put our future’s in the hands of black people—-( whites haven’t done sure a great job….)

    Don’t look for them to anytime soon! Support your own!

    Obama 08 baby!!

    He has my vote. Many, many presidents before him including our current president has screwed this country up. What harm could he do, my bet is he would do a better job than the current president. Whoever is elected next obviously has their work cut out for them. This is 2007 and things must change, what’s wrong with Obama excepting the challenge>

  • TJ

    ^^^ We were put in Iraq and in debt by Experienced presidents!

    typo: such a great job

  • Marquella

    I want for Obama to win, but I think America would pick a white lady (Clinton) over a black man. I know alot of you all will say I am wrong to say that, but that’s my opinion.

  • Giorgia

    Bush although i cannot stand him had experience. HE WAS A GOVERNOR!!

  • Giorgia

    you suckers are only voting for him because he is black.
