Barack Obama

The first half black ( African-American) US presidential Candidate ...the rock star politician...the best orator among all the 08 presidential candidates.....
Outraised Hillary Clinton in primary fund raising :)
a remarkable acheivement surely....but still I beleive Hillary is too tough to be beaten by this 45 year old man :)

Obama's weakness

1.Lack of Experience. He had become senator just 2 years back and now running for President.( He says I have been in politics long enough to know that politics needs a change )
2. His race(colour)- Is US ready for a black President? He is supposed to be a black leader who does not scare white people....

H was born in Hawaii , father from Kenya and mother from Kansas (US) ,went to school in LA (Los Angeles) and Jakarta( Indonesia) ,went to college in New York, then at Harvard Law School( got his degree with Magna Cum Laude) and then lived in Chicago and now in washington and now want to move to White House...
A "unique perspective" in the globalised 21st century....

The Jews !!! "Influence far disproportionate to the size of the community"

"It makes no sense at all to try to deny the reality of Jewish power and prominence in popular culture."

Michael Medved, well-known Jewish author and respected film critic.

Jews are only two percent of the US population yet comprise eleven percent of what this study defines as the nation's elite.
During the last three decades Jews [in the United States] have made up 50 percent of the top two hundred intellectuals ... 20 percent of professors at the leading universities ... 40 percent of partners in the leading law firms in New York and Washington ... 59 percent of the directors, writers, and producers of the 50 top-grossing motion pictures from 1965 to 1982, and 58 percent of directors, writers, and producers in two or more primetime television series.

Indian-Americans in US are also as populous as jews.but their impact on the US economy and foreign relations is too meagre to be compared to the "jewish lobby".
