Hey y’all — no matter how you may feel about Barack Obama, the truth is that if he runs, he will be the first African-American with a real shot at the presidency. Sorry but we all know that Jesse, Al and Carol’s runs were as much about advocacy and vanity as anything else. Obama would be for real.

There’s a new website encouraging him to throw his hat into the ring, officially: RunObama.com. There’s some good bio info and an all-Obama, all-the-time blog. (Does Oprah know about this site?) I think Obama has won a lot of people over with his personality. Now, to grab the trophy, he’s got to blow people away with substance. If he has any. Which he might. We’ll see.
