Newble On Barack Obama

Democrat Barack Obama announced his bid for president Saturday, and that created an interest in the 2008 election for Cavs forward Ira Newble.

Obama is a black senator from Illinois and the youngest candidate at 45.

“This is the best time in this country for him to run, but I still don’t believe this country is ready for an African-American president,” Newble said. “I don’t think this country is ready for a woman to become president either, but I’m sure Hillary Rodham Clinton is as, if not more, intelligent than many men with power in our government.”
