ambition vs. family

Do you know what bothers me the most about President-Elect Obama? It’s that he’s put his career aspirations above his children and family. Don’t get me wrong, we have had other presidents who have younger children but I can’t pass that kind of judgment on them... The reason for this is because I live in reality: because of his race (which to me, shouldn’t have ANYTHING to do with it, but again, I live in reality) he has a HUGE target on his back, as does each member of his young family. His children have a massive risk of growing up without a father now, because of what he wants to be right now (rather than raise his girls, then move back to the political arena). Black president? White president? I don’t care; just fix the problems with our country!

This man has significantly less potential to fix anything in my eyes because he has NO respect from me as a parent: he's breaking what he has.

I hope I’m wrong about him.
