Obama Sounds Black "On Demand"

Well Mr. Obama wins Iowa tonight and moves on to New Hampshire. Good for him, the rest of his party and the entire universe. We all win if Hillary and Bill Clinton are kept from returning to the White House.

Mr. Obama has some unique characteristics that make him attractive to many primary voters. He's fresh, he's young, he doesn't have a record so he's clean and he's black. In fact, I've noticed that Barack actually sounds "black" on demand.

He is the candidate of change. I've watched him do it when he speaks to black audiences, and I've watched him do it when he's really poring on the passion. He changes his dialect and can sound like he's preaching down in Birmingham at the drop of the hat. How genuine is that I ask you?
