I've been hearing about the row in the States around Geraldine Ferraro's comment that Senator Obama would not be where he was today if he wasn't black. Now I'm a fair distance away but it seems to me that though the statement was politically extremely unwise I can't help but think that she may very well be right, what do you think?

For the record I don't think there is really very much difference between the top three candidates, McCain is anti reproductive rights so that rules him out for me, Clinton has been too politically bland over the last several years (probably trying to build up to this Presidential race), and Obama is pretty wet behind the ears. They all have their drawbacks and none of them really get me very excited about any kind of deep positive change happening any time soon.
