Not Ready for Prime Time?


For the second time in recent debates, the mention of world leaders has attracted attention to Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama.

At Tuesday night’s AFL-CIO forum in Chicago, Obama was asked if he would scrap the North American Free Trade Agreement as president. The senator from Illinois said, “I would immediately call the president of Mexico, the president of Canada, to try to amend NAFTA, because I think that we can get labor agreements in that agreement right now.”

The only problem is Canada has a prime minister, not a president. (source)
Remember, this is the guy who, three years ago, was still trying to figure out the Illinois political scene. And, this is the guy who suggested we should invade Pakistan, one of our allies in the WOT.

I'll say it again, if he wasn't black (or half-black) no one would consider him a viable candidate for the Presidency.
