This is an excellent comment because it is short but sweet, and it speaks to why black people should not vote for a candidate based on his race or emotions.
Do I want OBAMA to win? YES
IS my life going to change once he’s elected? HELL NO
IS he the perfect candidate? NO ONE IS
Will HE make a significant change? Doubt IT

Some of you say you are voting for change. But if Barack Obama is elected, Congress still wields the power to VETO any change he attempts to make - and trust that they will!
I'm not saying vote for McCain. I'm just saying that the president does not run this country. If McCain wins he can't make changes either without the full approval of the House and Senate. That's why you should be worrying about your local elected officials who become representatives of both the House and Senate.
Don't forget it was The House of Representatives that stole the election from Al Gore and gave it to Bush in 2000.
