The problem of the 20th century, was the problem of the colour line, said Senator Barak Obama, answering a question on race, posed by Eric Schmidt of Google, when Obama went to Google headquarters at Mount View main campus to unveil his programme on technology.

Now, if you expand that .the problem of the 21st century is the problem of the other .. People who are not like us, explained Barak Obama when he was invited in November 2007 as a candidate for Democratic presidential nominations, to a packed house of Googlers in T-shirts.

He then went on to explain, In latest terms, if you go to Sri Lanka, what`s been fueling a vicious civil war there, even though every one looks like exactly the same ..same in Northern Ireland .

So .part of what I believe I bring to this office is some body who tries to see the world with a variety of different races. My mother was white. My father was African. I grew up in Hawaii. I have a sister who is part Indonesian. She`s married to a Chinese Canadian . We are able to see the world through other people`s eyes. And that`s what I think, I can provide ., said Senator Obama in his discussion that was called a `fire side` chat with Eric Schmidt, after his half hour plus speech that covered almost every topic.

Lakan Astrologers show interests in US elecions
By Himal Kotelawala
With the much hyped US presidential election only two days away, local astrologers are also getting into the mix, predicting different outcomes for apparent favourite Democratic candidate Barack Obama who is currently leading the polls, with his Republican rival John McCain trailing far behind.

According to W. R. Perera, a professional astrologer who practices what he calls fine astrology, things are looking rather grim for the Illinois Senator. The stars predict a very grave fate for Obama, says Mr. Perera, as he has a very unfavourable planetary system developed in the first house.

Mr. Perera had gone to the extent of writing his predictions to US Ambassador Robert Blake requesting him to send a copy of the letter to the two candidates if possible.

The way I see it, Obama has more than a 50 percent chance of losing the election, based on his time of birth which I gathered from a newspaper. However there is a far greater chance of him not being present to obtain a victory, Mr. Perera told The Sunday Times.

He said the presence of Saturn and Mars indicates the possibility of an incident occurring some time this year. However, had the elections been held last year, Obama would have won with a landslide as the previous year was very good for him, he says.

Meanwhile Astrologer Senerath Liyanarachchi predicted a victory for Obama who is promising to bring change to Washington, and, by extension, to the whole world.

According to the world`s horoscope, Mr. Liyanarachchi says, there seems to be a sudden advance in the African American community which is a sure sign of an Obama victory.

There will be change in America`s role in the international arena. As Jupiter will be weakened in December this year, there will be a tremendous progress in the global economy, he says.

All signs of a Democratic administration, according to almost all the polls conducted in the US. The Obama campaign has consistently been promoting the theme of `change` and a large number of voters are focusing on the ongoing economy crisis in the US. A poll conducted by CNN indicates that 58% percent of all Americans will consider the economy as the number 1 issue when deciding their vote, and a majority of them believe that Obama would do a better job at handling the economy.

Obama is currently leading the national polls by a 6.5 percentage margin with Obama averaging the polls at 50.0% and McCain at 43.5%.

2ND LEAD (Adds additional quotes)
Obama: Sri Lanka afflicted with 'problem of the other'
TamilNet, Tuesday, 08 January 2008, 01:02 GMT

Characterizing the conflict in Sri Lanka as a 'vicious civil war,' Senator Barack Obama, a leading Democratic contender in America's forth coming 2008 Presidential Elections, said during an interview that, 'the problem of the 21st century is the problem of the other.' He described this phenomenon as the inability of people to accommodate others 'who are not like us,' and mentioned Sri Lanka as an example, pointing out that war rages even when 'everybody there looks exactly the same.'

Characterization of conflicts in the 21st century this way, Obama said, is an extention to the American Civil Rights era activist W.E. Dubois' quote 'The problem of the 20th century is the problem of the color line.'

This problem of the other afflicted places like Sri Lanka, Northern Ireland and the issue of race within the United States, he said.

:)) OBAMA is assured a win, without or without some astrologer's claims:)

Palin cost McCain his presidency

also unless the conservative repubs become more liberal they will be sidelined forever as more and more younger votes are gonna vote(as the baby boomer generation goes away) and the vast majority of the younger generation's voters are liberal.

not made any gaffs,


He hasn't made too many gaffs because he hasn't actually said ANYTHING, no one really knows what his policies are or even WHO he is, the lamestream medai aid and abbet this process shielding Hussein, while going after ordinary citizens like Joe the plumber when he asks their 'messaiah' a question.

But the few times where his carefuly scripted interactions fell apart we got a good look at what he is, and it is ugly!
