Oh my. Have we caught Senator Barack Obama and his beautiful wife Michelle in a tender moment?

Or is he telling her what he’s just announced to the world on his website — that he’s forming a Presidential Exploratory Committee and that he intends to run for president in 2008?

None of the above, I spotted this photo over at my girl Fresh’s Crunk & Disorderly website. Barack and Michelle Obama have been named couple numero uno on Ebony magazine’s annual 10 Hottest Couples list.

I know some of you have been discussing Obama’s problems and prospects in the comments for my previous post on interracial relations, but let me ask you this flat out.

Look past the historic racial significance, his relative inexperience, his meteoric rise to public prominence, and his cultural differences with the African American community, and consider the man before you.

I’m not asking if you lean to the right or the left. Your politics are your business, and I think it’s important to respect each other’s beliefs and affiliations.

All I want to know is, would you vote for Barack Obama in the 2008 presidential elections?

I’m getting back to the makeup-‘n-hair stuff real soon, y’all! Afrobella is expanding in all sorts of new ways, and I love the intelligent discussion!
