WASHINGTON ó It was November 2006 when Senator Barack Obama first gathered friends and advisers at a Washington law firm to brainstorm about what it would take for him to win the presidency.

Those who attended the meeting said the mix of excitement and trepidation at times felt asphyxiating, as the group weighed the challenges of such a long shot. Would Mr. Obama be able to raise enough money? What kind of toll would a campaign take on him and his family? What kind of organization could he build?

If you read the entire article, it basically says that Obama has to play down the black ties in order to avoid white backlash.

You're right. But then the reason for this thread was obviously not to call attention to the unique campaign efforts required by Barack.

The reason for this thread--like all the other hundreds--is to pound away at one theme: Obama/race/Obama/race/Obama/race/Obama/race.

But ever since certain people began doing this, it's had the opposite affect at the polls.
