    Of course the President elect is not the slightest bit socialist.

    It's just that the word, "socialist", is a term of abuse like, "nigger" or "slut".

    And those who use it are cheap and vulgar.

    No he won't. But that doesn't mean some idiot won't try. Which saddens me. I happen to be very happy with an intelligent black man in office as opposed to a dumb white guy (and I'm white!). Skin color = meaningless.

    Why does race have to be an issue in a political assassination?

    If you say you're against political assassination, always, on principle, you have to be against the attempts on the likes of Hitler, which I can't say I am.

    I don't think he will be, but I still worry. He gave his victory speech in a bullet-proof box.

    I was reading the short story "American History" with my remedial class yesterday, which is about this adolescent Puerto Rican girl's experience of JFK's assassination. I actually almost cried when I was reading it with them because the thought of that happening to Obama is so sad to me.

    I think that he should ride in a popemobile-type deal when he goes traveling by car. You know, the Mercedes pickup with the display case in the back? (I would imagine it's bullet proof.)

    Shouldn't be should it, Jack? But my guess that most attempts against his life, and I'm certain there will be more than a few, will be racially motivated.

    Assassination is a radical act in and of itself--all attempts would be radical.

    If you say you're against political assassination, always, on principle, you have to be against the attempts on the likes of Hitler, which I can't say I am.
    1- Race shouldn't have to matter, but unfortunately, if you look at our country's long line of FORTY-THREE Caucasian Presidents, Obama's race is going to be a big deal for the bigots in our nation. It shouldn't matter, but to some people [and I do know a few, personally] it's the end of the world that a black/bi-racial man is now President elect.

    2- I wouldn't have been against the political assassination of Hitler, but when it comes down to it, he was a tyrant and a dictator who was responsible for the deaths of millions of people... innocent people-- for no real plausible reasons save that he wanted to create a perfect race and purge the world of the imperfections he saw within it. [which boils down to race and heritage, mind you :rolli: ]. The same could be said about any country's leader who would do such a thing, even our own-- but I don't really think Obama's got it in his game plan to do such a thing and I wouldn't wish assassination on anybody [yes I realize this contradicts the first sentence of point two-- I've got a conflicting personality ]
    Don't hate me because you're beautiful.

    That's racial, Eileen.

    If you didn't misread the post then I'm not tracking your train of thought. ???

    Just reread you and see what you're saying, Eileen.
