Obama's got the brains, the pluck, the will, the skill, the experience and common sense; intelligence and education to lead our nation back to where it's meant to be: the greatest, democracy this world will ever see.

This is the Land of the Free, of opportunity, ingenuity and unity. of community and brotherhood and all things good, where dreams turn fantasy into reality. It's all this and more. Much, much more.

But in spite of all our might, our sense of wrong and right and decency, there's one commonality on which all Americans do not agree: BIGOTRY. There still exists pockets of hate in the United States. it's a threat to the future of the U. S. A. and the American Way,

A case in point: the campaign to elect the next president and his running-mate who must restore respect and leadership that eight years of failed Bush policy have done to rob us of the Number One Position we have celebrated, almost unabated, since the days of FDR.

There have been wars on foreign soil, battles royal over oil, political and ethnic uprisings in the Middle East, in Europe, Africa and other places; times of famine, times of feast. At least we weathered it all, times great and small, created by man or God, but we got through them successfully,

Then came 9/11. Death and grief beyond belief. economic devastation faced not just by this nation but all of civilization. The crisis created the recovery of the failing George W. Bush Administration. He launched an illegal war against Iraq and pursued a policy of false expectations and failed foreign relations.

The war slogs on, the GOP and Democrats are at it, tooth and nail, to determine who will prevail in November---Republicans, headed by John McCain, who vows to continue the prevailing, failing Bush/Cheney policy and Barack Obama who seeks a way to end the war and restore peace to the Middle East.

Most Americans agree with what Obama WANTS to do. Economists and militarists agree he's on the track to peace in Iraq. The GOP, led by John McCain, would remain no matter how many more GIs are slain and trillions down the drain until the endless war is won.

But John is white and Barack is black and it's feared enough bigoted voters will turn their back on a chance to end the killing spree based on race and nothing more.

Let's halt the hate of a dedicated leader simply because he's black. Barack may be our last great hope to bring peace, prosperity and humanity back to a crumbling world community.

You are so right. I just hope this country wises up before it's too late. Right now I'm not feeling too hopeful and I do hope I'm wrong.
