That is an unbelievably poor website. I mean "Condi-ography" -- nobody can expect to be taken seriously using words lik that.

Why hasn't there been a Native American elected for President?
We ran this country many years before the British came. I believe we can run it again.

Who are the presidents or Prime Ministers of other countries? I do not honestly know, enlighten me who the PM or Presidents of South America, Mexico, Australia, Africa, China, Japan, Korea, Canada, Italy, France, etc.

If it serves me correctly, the leader of Italy is Italian. The President of France is French, etc. I don't believe Tim Carey is the leader of Japan, no, sorry, no.

What is America? Where did it come from? Were there even people on this continent before Colombus's people came? Or was it just NEW land and the British just came in and were the ONLY ones on this country?

I just don't get why my people were tricked, slaughtered, then taken advantage of, and then we can't even run for President of a country that was originally ours.

What's stopping a Native American candidate from running? is such a situation impossible through legal barriers or is there the broader problem of gathering widespread political support.

Interesting citing Australia, considering that much like America it is a country with colonial history, and the British had the principle of Terra Nullius at their disposal.

In order of apperance: name a specific South American country, Vicente Fox, John Howard, name a specific African country, Hu Jintao, Junichiro Koizumi, Pak Pong-ju [DPRK - real power exercised by Kim Jong-il] and Roo Moo-hyun [ROK], Paul Martin, Silvio Berlusconi, Jacques Chirac.

Well, by your use of logic, Japan should be run by one of the Ainu, seeing how they were on the island before the Japanese came and took their island. Also, Mexico should be run by maybe the Toltecs or Mayans (no Aztecs-they migrated in to Mexico and conquered and subjugated many people who were there first.

I'd love it if a Native American were elected President. Perhaps it will happen before a woman gets elected President. Personally I think Hell will freeze over before a woman is elected President.

Hell would freeze over if a Minority were elected president.

I'd bet a million on that. Would you?

i think Powell could have won if he tried.

i also believe Rice is qualified as well.

Rice would be both a minorityand a woman, and a person who has proven herself in the public and private sector.



i would hope that we'd see a president elected because they were the right person for the job, not because they are the better of two mediocre candidates.
