Yet more really stupid propaganda

Why is it that the only way to be "black enough" to be elected president is to be rich, well-educated, Southern, and white? The very notion is totally insane, yet the belief doesn't seem to be going away. For example, this article reports that:
Civil rights icon Andrew Young says Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama is too young and lacks the support network to ascend to the White House.

In a media interview posted online, Young also quipped that Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton has her husband behind her, and that "Bill is every bit as black as Barack."
Here's another bit of relatively stupid pro-Hillary propaganda. It's subtle, but it's also totally bogus:
"I want Barack Obama to be president," Young said, pausing for effect, "in 2016."

"It's not a matter of being inexperienced. It's a matter of being young," Young said. "There's a certain level of maturity ... you've got to learn to take a certain amount of (expletive)."
Bill Clinton turned 46 in 1992, the year that he was first elected president. Barack Obama will turn 47 in 2008.
