Greetings, and welcome to the comm. If you want to join the community and post, please first read the community user, in particular the rules. I've also posted them below for your convenience.This community is for the purposes of discussing and/or supporting the 2008 presidential campaign of Barack Obama, the 2008 presidential election in general as it pertains to Barack Obama, etc.Barack Obama
is a junior Senator from the State of Illinois. He is currently serving his second term in the United States Senate, and on February 10th, 2007 announced his intent to seek the Democratic Party's nomination as the Democratic candidate for the 2008 presidential election.
The entry of Barack Obama into the 2008 presidential race is an historic occasion; Obama may be the first black candidate to have a viable shot at receiving the nomination of the Democratic Party as their candidate for the 2008 presidency.

Offenders will be scourged with the flayed skin of Karl Rove.
Extensive analysis, intellectualism, and overly academic writing are welcomed. We're not afraid of big words like "antidisestablismentarianism" here. ( The rules, as they are today.Collapse )

To get things started, I found this interesting article on the Federalist Journal
positing that the candidacy of Barack Obama proves that America is colorblind.
