people get the government they deserve .... this is a very true statement.
Amen to that! The Amendments voted for the people who are chosen,...it is all guess work after all, and we can only cross our fingers and pray for what we hope the outcome we want!
I think he does stand a chance or else I wouldn't have taken the time to express my view. My concern (until shown otherwise) is that people are trying to put someone who 'might' be equivalent to that of a cashier in charge of the whole grocery store.
And I thank you for sharing your views! Most of the men who have been President, were Governors, I guess this disqualifies Obama, anyone else but Obama, this is a one-dimentional way of thinking.
FS, can you give me any criteria that would suggest that Obama has 'related' experience for the position that he is applying for?
Other than being a US citizen born in the United States of America and over the age of requirement?
Other than having the qualities to be a great leader, sound judgement, being able to make decisions, the right ones, (and as we all know, half of the time, most of the Presidents in power, do not make the right decisions - thus this is not necessarily a requirement I guess!).
As for "related" experience, it is not a requirement that political experience makes you a good President, it does help, and in that case, Senator Obama may just be a Junior Senator in the US Senate, however, prior to that he was a Senator for the State of Illinois for about 8 years, he was a lawyer.
You know what else, Obama exudes the confidence & eloquence that we need in our leadership, not fumbling and bumbling. He also seems to have a vision of where our country could be, that others don't seem to see. But so many of his naysayers consider this to be a bad trait, too cocky and definitely talks too much....more good qualities for a great leader!lol!
Technically, if experience is really what the people are looking for, then either Guiliani, Romney or Huckabee should have been the frontrunner!
