Black conservatives conflicted on Obama campaign

Jesus H Christ with dark skin (I know), but this ranks right up there with "I'd like to have a beer with the guy" as a good reason to vote for someone as a world leader.

Come on you motherfucking stupid people. If you don't buy his policies and ideology, vote for someone else or write in a candidate. Just because he looks something like you just doesn't make sense in the voting booth.
Black conservative talk show host Armstrong Williams has never voted for a Democrat for president. That could change this year with Barack Obama as the Democratic Party's nominee.

"I don't necessarily like his policies; I don't like much that he advocates, but for the first time in my life, history thrusts me to really seriously think about it," Williams said. "I can honestly say I have no idea who I'm going to pull that lever for in November. And to me, that's incredible."

Just as Obama has touched black Democratic voters, he has engendered conflicting emotions among black Republicans. They revel over the possibility of a black president but wrestle with the thought that the Illinois senator doesn't sit beside them ideologically.

"Among black conservatives," Williams said, "they tell me privately, it would be very hard to vote against him in November."
