Re: Toni Morrison Endorses Barack Obama

Dear Toni Morrison,
The fundamental existence of the African American can only be defined by the African American experience from generation to generation and not by political stump speeches without substance and without experience.
The only difference between Senator Barack Obama and former Senator John Edwards is the color of their skin.
Have you read the letter Martin Luther King, III, sent to Hon. John Edwards?
The brilliant recitation of paraphrased quotes is not the evidence of intelligence or wisdom, but the clever display of the gift of the gab.
"Politicians of the new generation are carefully coached by their spin doctors to produce on-demand sound bites which are clear and to the point."
I know that you know nothing more about Barack Obama than his well rehearsed and well acted victory speeches in Iowa and South Carolina, and apparently have only seen him from your poetic point of view.
No more, no less.
It is nothing short of ignorance to judge a man by his appearance from a distance.
A man should be judged by his works and not by his looks or by his speech.
For his looks will fade like the Morning Glory before the sunset and his mere words will only become echoes in our heads.
Only our works will testify of our intelligence, competence, diligence and service to humanity, even when the echoes of our best speeches can no longer be heard.
What has Senator Barack Obama done so far to prove his wisdom and intelligence?
Have you been to his constituents in Illinois?
Have you checked Barack Obama's Record in the Illinois Senate?
Or is it his erroneous transaction with the indicted estate developer, Antoin Rezko, his political godfather?
"Somebody has to take responsibility for being a leader."
~ Toni Morrison
Senator Hillary Clinton is the only Democratic Presidential Candidate left in the presidential race who has taken responsibility for leadership and not making excuses.
How do you judge wisdom?
By "boneheadedness" in erroneous and ambiguous political statements or being economical with the facts on one's compromise with political power brokers and Lobbyists?
How can you say a man has intelligence when he lacks competence and has a poor record of diligence from Illinois to Capitol?
Your decision to endorse Senator Barack Obama is not based on truth, but on your romantic summation of his stage craft, because God knows that your knowledge of him is based on mere hearsay and not on facts.
"For now we see in a mirror, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know fully even as also I was fully known."
~1 Corinthians 13:12
Cheers and God bless.
