Perspective - March 2, 2007


asked at the Danville Public Library

Is our country ready for a black president? A woman president?

I would hope the country is ready for it. I see the great potential of new and exciting candidates that bring different perspectives. It would bring new things to a traditional process.

If they do a good job, why not? I mean if they are mature, I don't know if the gender or color means anything.

Yes, I think the state of California and the nation are ready for both a black president and a woman president because people base their decision on which candidate is good rather than their gender or race.

I don't know about the country but I am. I actually like Barack Obama. And I think Mrs. Clinton is a good candidate.

I would say we are. It's about time to change things up. A black president would be really historic - that's cool. A woman, she might be more emotional but I think it would be cool. Hillary Clinton knows quite a bit about everything. I'm all for female power - but - I don't know if the nation is ready.
