women, unite!

It's really irritating to hear the media make such a big hype about Illinois senator and presidential candidate Barrack Obama not winning the "black vote." I don't get it. Just because he's Black doesn't mean every Black voter should vote in his favor. If that was so, every woman should vote for Hillary Clinton, and as women make up half of our population, alas, we'd have a woman calling the shots. And to be honest, I don't have one bit of a problem with that.

I agree with everything you said! Just because someone belongs to a particular ethnic, religious or socio-economic background doesn't mean that they're obligated to vote for the candidate that represents it. I've been thinking about that in regards to Hilary, too. While I am excited that she's running, I can't see myself actually voting for her. She's a bit too socially liberal for my taste. But I am thrilled that a woman is finally running for office - it's about time!
