It seems to me that the media always talks about the discrepancy between how whites, blacks and hispanics like Obama, and what Obama’s Africanness means for the US, but I imagine the hidden majority like him for reasons that have nothing to do with that.

Sorry, off topic, but Nick can you republish on Club Troppo your piece in todays AFR (29/2/08)?

I read it this morning and was very impressed. Your readers here who aren’t AFR subscribers would probably enjoy it too.

I don’t like him because of his anti-free trade policies, his universal health care policies, his cap-and-trade CO2 global warming policies, his support for hate-crime statutes, his support for the war on drugs, and his pro-minimum wage stance.

I’m sure there are other policy issues that would prevent me form supporting him.

Well that did seem to be racially motivated.

That aside I don’t like Obama and I think that those that do are victims of groupthink. I don’t like Obama because a) his rhetoric doesn’t impress me much and b) Hillary’s health care plan is better and closer to our own.

I think it is embarrassing for the US that it does not have this.
