Geraldine is Right Obama is Lucky!

The sick old white lady who was the first woman to run as a vice presidential candidate of a major party is right. Senator Barack Obama is a lucky Black man. I feel really sad for her and for all the women like her who feel like they are missing out what should outrage them is the ineptitude of the Clinton campaign which is leading to a McClain victory in November.

And instead of debating his stead in life, he ought to go to Altoona, PA, and Wilkes Barre and Harrisburg and proclaim.

I am lucky to have been born in this country, where I was raised in an atmosphere that inspired me to be all that I could be. I was lucky to have been born in a country where brave men and women of all races and creeds stood against the racism and brought forth a great nation where there are opportunities for people who are willing to work hard to succeed.

I am lucky to have lived in a state where people were able to go beyond the color of my skin, and beyond my atypical name to hear my message and grasp my vision of what it means to serve our great country and to make it better.

He should shout, I am lucky to have been born in a multicultural and diverse society where I know that love knows no boundaries and that I understand the importance of building strong families where children are given a broad range of educational opportunities.

Actually I am more than lucky, I am as my name describes blessed. I am blessed to live in a country where I can embrace God through Jesus Christ and I was able to express my beliefs and celebrate my God without preventing others who choose to exercise their faith or beliefs differently.

And finally I am lucky and blessed to have this opportunity to expand the base of my party to include the young, the progressive and those who want to insure that every American is able to secure health care coverage without penalty, where every American family is able to pursue the dream of I higher education that I was lucky enough to experience. I am also lucky that we live in a country where people are able to go beyond scare tactics and realize that we need a policy that protects from the 9AM attacks, the middle of the morning attacks, a policy that allows this country to reclaim the respect we squandered in an ill advised war in Iraq which has not only drained our financial resources, to the point where the Iraqis have a massive surplus while we are laboring under a massive deficit. Our financial resources have weakened our currency which is leading to higher gas prices which in 2008 is hurting the family that has to drive to work. Our weak economy is costing many Americans their jobs and their homes and while Hillary and McClain want to fight over who was more wrong about Iraq I want to bring you back to work, bring your home out of foreclosure, and allow the opportunity to keep your health up so you and I can work to bring America back.

I am so lucky and so blessed to be who I am so that I can work together with all of you who are lucky and blessed to be a part of this great nation and we can continue to keep it a great nation.

God bless America.

Actually Obama is a lucky black man, though it's sad he can't just be a lucky man. But that's the state of society.

You should totally work in the Obama campaign. Your words if Obama used them in a speech would definitely diffuse whatever damage Ferraro unintentionally caused.
