Soon, very soon, U.S. Sen. Barack Obama will announce his bid to become the first black president of the United States. If you believe the press and the pundits, this country is in the grips of Obama mania. He has entranced and enthralled the electorate. I have been both heartened and puzzled by the enthusiasm among white voters across the nation. On the other hand, we haven't heard much from regular black folks. So over the holidays, I did my own unscientific survey. Around the Christmas dinner table, the family was amazingly blase.
