ELECTION 2008: From Obama's website

From Obama's website (via the ElectionGeek blog)

Obama acknowledges, with no small irony, that he benefits from his race.

If he were white, he once bluntly noted, he would simply be one of nine freshmen senators, almost certainly without a multimillion-dollar book deal and a shred of celebrity. Or would he have been elected at all?

Sounds like Geraldine Ferraro's comments doesn't it? What does it say about race in America?
