in what way? The only time I recognized any mention ofgender was when she cried caused she loves us so much. Not tryin to be a dick here( really), but I've never noticed this gender bias that I keep hearing about.

And I think the repubs will pull out all stops against Obama. They need as many smoke screens as possible, cause they cant beat him on the issues.

Yes they will. They won't be able to help themselves. It will be their dream come true.

Well, I think it's pretty jacked that they call her by her first name. I liken it to "sweetie" or "honey".

Of course they will. This is America. The media started a long time ago with their racist nonsense. This will be one of the nastiest, racist elections you will ever witness, and all of America's "true colors" will come out and the rest of the world will witness it.

I just find it strange that while her husband was President, Repubs and the media referred to her as Hillary, and many times not as First Lady Hillary Clinton. So why now the "gender" issues? She could have made this an issue 8 years ago and also while she was running for the NY Senate office. I just don't buy that argument. She continously calls Senator Obama by his first name as well, and so does the media.

Also members of her staff already played into the race game. Her husband making the comparison between Obama and Jesse Jackson;Geraldine Ferraro seems to have a major issue with his race, etc., etc., lets not forget a major portion of the American population of closet racists that will be having fits should he get the nom... this is all just a tip of the iceberg. I wish him all the strength and prayers in the world because he will have a fight on his hands that will need the strength of God to pull him through.

nod the sexism used against her is pretty insidious; another factor is also that i think as a society we tend to shrug off sexism as being more permissible than racism.

of course they're gonna use race, his name, whatever they can get their hands on. whatever. shrug he's still going to win.

I have heard a few remarks from ppl saying there is no way they would want a woman for president. I am all for women being president..just not Hillary.

yeah. i mean, at least he's more intelligent, but for all that he might be better than bush was, i still think he'll be swayed to the republican party's bullshit before long. confused

They don't really have to. They already have most of the racists voting for them in every election anyway. In this particular election though, they already know that racists that normally wouldn't even vote are going to come out of the woodword and vote for them simply to keep a black man out.

First of all, I've been reading some of the idiotic comments on this P &R board and it's disheartening to see that our education system have sunk so low. Second, Sen. Obama will not lose if all of us good people vote for him. The racists who watch FOX news can't read so we don't need to care about them. This means many of you Obama bashers as well. mad

I don't feel that way, but let's tell it like it is. They can deny it all they want, but the GOP has played the race card for decades, going back to Nixon's 'Southern Strategy'(go read the words of the late Lee Atwater). They still engage in those dirty tricks - remember the whisper campaign against John McCain several years ago? Pretty low if you ask me.

If you do the research you will find that playing the race card is not exclusive to the Republicans. They did play a big race card when they helped to end slavery though.

Not everyone who doesn't support Obama is a racist but a lot of people who watch and work for Fox News are.

Republicans ended slavery to weaken the financial wealth of the south not for virtuous reasons.

Exactly...and they sold black folks down the river with the Compromise of 1877. So let's stop pretending the GOP ever gave a f--k about black folks. Democrats, Republicans - two sides of the same coin, IMO.

Trent Lott, Jesse Helms, Tom Delay, Dick Cheney, Rudy Giuliani - f--k them all.

So is that also the reason they introduced the first Civil Rights Act in 1875?

both parties use whatever cards/tactics they can to win. Race card?hmmph..
Jesse Jackson has been using the race card for decades.....
And everyone likes to talk about the "rightwing" Fox news channel,but
say nothing about the liberal obama loving left wing networks,,,CNN,NBC,MSNBC,ABC,CBS and good ol' Bill Maher on HBO.
hard to believe one network, Fox, can compete with all the others.

Of course, they'll TRY to use it.

Too bad for them, it's not going to work! Yes, there are many that aren't going to vote for Obama because of his race but there are many, many more that are going to vote for him because we are sick and tired of the way our country has been run down and plundered by the Republicans!
Here's what bothers ME:

Prince died of an overdose of the drug Fentanyl. Of which, it is very highly fucking likely that he never even knew he'd taken.

Obama's fate is in the hands of democrats. There are enough of us to beat McCain. Sure I rather have a 'Corzine' or 'Richardson'....Someone WITH SOME experience, but in the end I will stick to the party line.

McCain wins it will be our fault. We can not expect Reps to play nice or to vote for Obama. What I fear is a mix of party jumping and bitterness over a hillary loss to give McCain the win.

so many ppl are being quite negative on this issue and what i mean by people is the people who can't seem to have anything great to say. all they want to do is be negative, expect the worse and not bother find any solution to anything.
