    I'm talking about him being great in the sense of FDR, Lincoln, Jefferson, Washington type of great.

    More memorable than the fact that he would be the first African-American preesident, but one who rose above the problems of our times to confront them head on with a consensus.

    He has to get past Hillary first, though.

      There's no guarantee that he, or anyone, WOULD be (and in part, that depends on the problems that a President faces), but I don't think any other candidate really has that potential (although some, including Edwards, could well be very good Presidents, which would represent an improvement on a virtually astronomical scale from the present occupant of the White House).
