I recently gave this abridged "Obama Test" to my friends and teammates of different ethnicities and political persuasions.  The Republicans scored 0 to 5%.  The others were shocked, stunned and dismayed that they agreed with Governor Palin 80 to 90% and only agreed with Sen. Obama 10 to 20%.  What we would like you to do is "white out" the Obama answers and give this test to you friends, families, and employees.  Let us know how they did!

P.S. We are very pleased to tell you that if you would like to take the complete "Obama Test" go to www.audacity.com  It is in Chapter 11. The author has given his permission to download that chapter.
