These people said so while basing their opinion on the past racial hatred in the US. They never took in to consideration that the people can consider nation interests like economic growth and better foreign policy when choosing a president.
Mr. Obama adopted his Yes We Can campaign and he finally did it setting history as the first black African American president. One of the factors which can be attributed to his success is confidence.
Had he become so much concerned and worried on the aftermath or the probability of losing he will have encountered a very great challenge than it was or even he would have lost.
