US08: let's get real about the odds

You can't switch onto radio, television or the internet these days without getting the latest on the 2008 race for Democratic nomination in the national election to decide the next US President.
What is fascinating is all the space given to the prospect of Hillary Rodham Clinton or Barack Hussein Obama being voted into the White House.
In a country which still appears firmly convinced that God is a white Christian American male in heavenly robes carrying an M16, does either a woman or an African-American really stand a chance?
Does anyone actually think America is now mature enough to vote for someone other than an aging Anglo-Saxon male? Just asking.
