White People for Obama

By Creature

Since Senator Clinton's closing argument in this nominating process is that Barack Obama is unelectable in November because white people won't vote for him, I would like to go on record as saying that I am indeed white and that I will be voting for Barack Obama.

Unfortunately, I also have a college degree, so I guess I don't count. Who would have thought going to college would end up being a bad thing?

  • You're a friggin' elitist, Creature! I regret bringing you on here as the associate editor. What was I thinking?! I thought you were a real American, but you're way out of touch with hard-working, beer-swilling, god-fearing, pick-up truck-driving Americans, those heartlanders at whom Hillary has directed her pandering. And now I find you went to college! What, are you a Communist, too! And I know what you do for a living, and that just makes it worse! And... you live in the moral cesspool known as The Big Apple?

    Figures you're voting for Obama. Aren't you ashamed? Why don't you just move to France. Or Vermont.

  • Of course, I'm not American, but I'm "white," and if I were American, and not Canadian, I'd vote for Obama, too. But, then, I suppose that makes me a sexist, and a racial self-hater, and a coastal elitist, and similarly out-of-tough. Must be that New Jersey high school diploma I have. Or that Tufts degree. Oh, and I drive a VW, drink espresso, and used to live in Europe.

    Hillary must really hate people like me.

  • I, too, am white and will vote for Obama. And I am only enabled by a two year associates degree from a small local hey, perhaps I am only a decaf elitist? See, there could be hope yet! (Yeah, even my sarcasm is getting tired as this goes on and on and on!) Oh, but yes, being female, I KNOW Hillary hates me for not picking her based on gender alone.

  • You're all so very funny. I, too, am white and college and graduate school educated, living on the East Coast, and enjoying Starbucks . . . and will vote for McCain. Yes, Hillary's pandering, but you know what she means. It's will a large enough PERCENTAGE of whites vote for Obama? If yes, then he can win some key swing states and the presidency. If not, then it's President McCain. And as with 2000, despite how much you all hated it, it will be . . . THE ELECTORAL COLLEGE, STUPID!!! At this point in time I could theorize all day long about why Obama will win; and then why McCain will win. But it's a long, long, long way off.
