Agreed. 35% of the population says that America isn't ready for a woman president, but there are no polls out there asking if America is ready for a black president. We've been hearing a lot about Obama lately since he's considered running for president; he's seemingly intelligent, charismatic, well-spoken, and doesn't carry any of the political and personal baggage that Hillary does.
Then again, he has no foreign policy experience; but on the flip side, how could America's foreign policy possibly get any worse? I couldn't possibly imagine considering running for president though in a time such as this. Inheriting the war in Iraq is not going to be a good setup for any president of any political party.
It'll be interesting to see what happens in 2007.
