    Obama shows what he was doing all those times he wasn't in church listening to Rev. Wright

    This is the only way that white, red, brown, and black will all be at the same table with Obama.

    Forget bowling, here's my "common man" sport...But whats with the bar only carrying old fashioned beer and whiskey? Why must pool halls be caves? Hey barkeep, How about carrying a little Calvados, or at least Grey Goose, for this "everyman?"

    "Hmm the white ball heading towards the left-corner is me and the other losing ones: burgundy stripe is Hillary and the yellow one is Mc Cain.: so if I hit that other ball it will bounce back and hit them both and goaaal...It ain't soccer, but it is the political strategy what I have in mind for the next state"

    Barack Obama subtly telling Hillary it's her "cue" to drop out of the race.

    I dthoughtk that The COLORof Money meant that Hilarywas trying to playnthye TO PLAY the race card again...........but this hitting small balls with a cue stick is a lot easier than bowling!!!!

    The only change I know how to make is putting this stick behind my back ! But I can fake it good !

    I still don't think it's fair that the white ball carries more weight than the black vote, I mean ball.

    So in Pennsylvania he went bowling,
    In West Virginia he plays billiards.
    I can wait to see him in Oregon playing hacky-sack.
