Alrighty... lets play "What doesn't belong here..." These are two pictures of a Barack Obama office in Houston, TX. What should not be in these two pictures?

I can't believe you people dislike Obama for having a Che poster in his office. Don't get me wrong, I don't support Obama, because I do not think he represents the interests of black people, or working people in general, but for him to have a Che poster in one of his offices makes me dislike him slightly less. I can't believe you people "OMG, Che, thats so bad!"

Do we need a reality check here? Why is everyone on his case? How can you say that Obama isn't for Blacks and working class pople? If he isn't then we are sure in for one hell of another eight years because the other candidates sure aren't. Also, you have to remember that sometimes, campaigners imbue their own political views into what is being recorded by the media and the media is looking to have a field day with that stuff so you have to be careful judging PRESIDENT OBAMA by the actions of others. He is lucky to have many of his supporters, though some like Rev. Wright, are not beneficial to his campaign because people choose to get stuck on thier actions rather than his.

All of us get a little dirty during the course of a day. But at some point it becomes a problem. The problem with Obama's associations are the nature of those associations in that they are long standing and close to heart. As for Obama's politics, they are simply socialisms. One would do as well to rob ones neighbor, than to hire Obama to do do it for them and wipe thier hands of the matter. Well it's legal they say. But I have never seen legality as a light brighter than my conscience. At some point one must choose principle over lust and greed....if not for the nation, then for ones own peace of mind. That upon which one sets ones heart is in the end either ones salvation or ones despair.

Regarding the Che poster. It's my understanding that it was hung by a staff member at that particular office, and was/is not a political statement by the the Obama campaign. At worst, things of this nature are representative of Obama supporters, and a stretch to pin it on Obama as he couldn't possibly inspect every campaign office across the entire nation. BTW, I'm not an Obama supporter.

It is so funny how people spout ideology when speaking of politics but never pure fact. You're just as bad as they are. What one has to consider is that no one is perfect, and people look to politicians to intentionally persecute them based on their shortcomings or what we consider as their shortcomings. You call Obama's political foundation "socialist?" I suppose you're a conservative then? What are you, a fascist? Don't spout your jaded egoism off to try and convince me that your politics are "ever-so-much-more-righteous" because I am not a Roman and far too intelligent to be swayed by blatant ranting. Obama's associations are no different than ours. I have past associations, some close enough, that are not sugar sweet. So do you. Yet, you cannot judge me based on the people I know, but rather, my actions alone. How would you define a US diplomat's associations? They have to meet people of different belief patterns and government practices all of the time. They don't always disagree, either. Know why? Because a rational human being, a good diplomat, not only offers the American perspective and purpose, but they are also good at understanding the purposes of others. i don't have to identify with communism and socialism to understand how and why both governments were developed. When Castro was elected, he was a savior, after, a tyrant. Association means nothing when compared with a man's actions. If it did, we'd all be heathens.
