You're doomed if Barack becomes president? No you were doomed when Bush became president. Let's face it, any of the candidates is an improvement on Bush, I can't see how it could possibly get any worse. And yet there are some people saying that none of the candidates are 'right' for America. As opposed to the idiot son of a ex-president. Yeah, good logic.
Anyways it is racist, theres no getting round it, and it could taint Obama's campaign. I doubt it happens though, she seems quite reputable. Also there are ways to spin it to keep Barack innocent anyways, like Barack not endorsing it in anyways, and not knowing of it, or perhaps that she was young and ways like that. They are politicians, they will find a way of stopping it. But if it is true, it will be like the Chappaquiddick incident for Kennedy, and will likely damage him greatly.
