Obama Succeeds In Uniting The American People - Against One Another
"Obama has managed to unite both African Americans and Caucasians into two distinctive and disparate voting blocks", Mindburgler said, "and that speaks volumes about Obama's ability to reach out across racial lines."
The results of Tuesday's primaries seem to corroborate Mindburgler's assessment.
Exit polls of Tuesday's primaries indicate that both African Americans and whites chose to unite behind their respective race - with African Americans unanimously voting for Barack Obama and whites overwhelmingly supporting Hillary Clinton.
"The unity we're seeing right now among Democratic voters," said North Carolina Democratic Party Chairman, Jerry Meeks, a super delegate who's come out in support of Obama,"is unprecedented in the annals of American politics. I can't recall a time in our nation's history when African Americans and Whites have been so united in their opposition to one another! For the first time in my adult life, I actually feel proud to be an American!"
Added Meeks: "It's a testament not only to Barack Obama's unifying appeal, but to Jeremiah Wright's ability to transcend race and connect with people of all walks of life, including the Taliban, Al Qaeda and Libyan President, Muammar Qaddafi."
North Carolina, super delegate, Jeanette Council - who recently announced her endorsement of Senator Obama - had some kind words of praise for the American people too.
"What the results of Tuesday's Primaries show," said Council, "is that when push comes to shove, Americans are capable of uniting not only behind the American flag, but behind the color of their skin as well."
Super delegate, John Gage of Maryland, who recently jumped on to the Obama bandwagon, also lavished effusive praise on Obama and his message of unity.
"Obama," Gage proclaimed, "has imbued both Blacks and Whites with a renewed sense of pride in the superiority of their respective communities. And I'm thrilled today to announce my endorsement of the ultimate unifier - Barack Obama."
However, Mr. Gage conceded that come November, he intends to vote for Senator McCain.
"Ultimately," he said, "if I'm going to embrace Senator Obama's message of unity, I'll have to reunite with the white community and support a member of my own race." Del.icio.us I DiggIt!
