Gotcha - thanks for clarifying.

I'm going to ask you the same thing: "Base that on something." Give me one indication why his race has anything to do with his motivation to run. Give me something that says he doesn't want to improve the country. Some quote, some action. Give it to me.

Why was he arrested for cocaine posession in the early '70s if he never smoked it?
Crack is different from cocaine just like cocaine is different from chocolate albiet to a much greater degree.

I already gave you the indications. I typed them right out for you.

And yes I've been rude, just as you have been in this very thread to a perfectly polite reponse to your request, and just like in my rude response to you, it's always a counter punch. Looking forward to those posts Philly. Keep them in context.

Everything. The day after he won his senate race, people were talking about him running for president in '08 and that was before we knew anything about him.

Funnily enough, this was entirely your first punch, and not "counter-punching" as you've always preached.

So because "people" were saying this, that makes it for selfish reasons?

Come on, try, we need some stronger arguments than this...

Why? That's the extent of the argument. I'm giving my perceptions on a discussion board based on historical evidence. I'm not saying it's fact and even if I was, it'd still be my opinion that it's fact.

I specifically said that Obama shouldn't be precluded from running based on drug use, and I specifically said that him being elected wouldn't ruin the country. Nor did I say anyone else was any better. So why is this an issue?

Can't trust Obama either. He was just elected to the Senate. His candidacy strikes me as just doing it to see if he can, to see how far he can ride the wave he's on and to see if a black man can be president. I don't have a problem with anyone being president if they are doing it to serve the best interests of their country. I'm just can't shake the feeling Obama is running to serve himself. It's a bit too oportunistic. I don't like the drug thing from his past either. It tells me he's not the strongest willed person.
Give me a reason. You haven't.

There I can do them too. What is that supposed to convey?

What is your goal here anyway? Your initial post seemed to be to ask about both candidates equally. You are only taking issue with the suppositions about Obama, and not Hillary or McCaine. Were you looking for opinions or justifications for your own opinions anyway?

A discussion board is not a court of law. We're not writing history books, we're giving opinions.

I never said I could! You quoted me yourself and you missed it the second time through as well. I'm not going to teach you history or how to read but I'll give you a third shot:
