The Thoughts of an Educated Young African American Male

A conscience vote coming for democrats, especially for North Carolinians

John EdwardsHilary Clinton and Barack ObamaJohn Edwards, NC State and NC Chapel Hill educated, is running for President of the United States again. He loves our great state of North Carolina. And, while many North Carolinians do not like him, he is going to be hard not to vote for. I have met him personally. He is genuine, sincere, and a good man. He has little experience, but in the south, we stick with our own. Wait, that’s where the problem seems to lay, loyalty.

 

Because, while I would normally vote for the North Carolinian, a man I met and liked personally, Barack Obama is also likely to run for President of the United States. Obama, is of course, African American. He is also, in my opinion, one of the best candidates our culture has ever put forward to run for President. He is smart, charismatic, educated, and well rounded.  It’s going to be hard for African Americans to not want to vote for him. If, we get out and vote!

And of course, Hilary Clinton is going to run for President. She is a strong candidate. And for women, she is going to be hard not to vote for. Women are going to want to see one of their own in the White House, just like everyone else.

So, the democratic primary is going to be interesting to say the least. Where will loyalties lie? Will they be with the home town Tar Heel, the African American candidate, or the qualified female candidate? Only time will tell, but I can see the democrats bruised and battered after their primary. I foresee this getting ugly.
