Why Can't Obama Close The Deal?

Why can't Obama Close The Deal?

Because he is a black man running to be President of the United States, that's why.

I am tired of everyone saying that its Obama's election to lose. I am really really tired of hearing people who are supposed to know better say it -- like Thomas Freidman in today's New York Times.

I am not accusing everybody of being a racist. I am just saying that it a huge change in a conservative society.

There are no rules for what happens when a black man is this close to the Presidency.

There are definitely no rules for what happens when that black man runs against the first truly evangelical candidate that the Republican Party has nominated since ...

Forever, maybe.

And that candidate is a woman to boot.

Nobody knows what's going to happen in the next 8 weeks.


Why couldn't Obama close the deal against Hillary?


Why couldn't the most powerful woman in America close the deal against a young community organizer in his 40s who accomplished nothing in the U.S. Senate?

Why can't Obama get runaway poll numbers against McCain?


Why can't the son of and Admiral and a grandson of an Admiral -- a man who has been a powerful Senator forever, with major pieces of legislation to his credit, as well as a world famous hero for 40 years -- why can't McCain close the deal against someone whose father couldn't make it in America and had to go back to Kenya to get a job?
