    The VP debate moderator, Gwen Ifill, has written and is releasing a pro-Obama book scheduled to come out in January, around Inaguration Day....

    My friends, this is equivalent to Obama himself moderating a debate on the Second Amendment between Mayor Daley and the NRA. So much for fairness.

    It looks like the Obama angle is being highlighted because of the debate and the fact that he's the Dem candidate, but it is in fact just a book about emerging black politicians.

    So really it's nothing more than a harmless racist book promoting the segregation of blacks and whites.

    It might be quite the boring book and wouldn't sell if it were simply about emerging politicians.

    Racism won't vanish from politics and Governmental leadership until a emerging successful, bright black politicians are just emerging, successful and bright, young politicians. (I stole another quote and manipulated it, as it's the same message) ;)

    I've seen her in previous debates as moderator and at the time she was in my opinion unfair I expect nothing more from her, In my judgment no one from th national media should be used as moderators.

    Another angle is that it's scheduled for release on Inauguration Day, so if Obama's elected, she stands to make a mint on this book.
