This would be a total destruction because Condi would do little to motivate the Rep base, while Obama would do at least enough to bring out the Dems, and Williams and McKinney would be as useless as the Libertarians and Greens always are at the national level.

Obama landslide. In the Deep South, white turnout is incredibly depressed, to the point that Obama's margin in the black vote is able to net him an overall vote of over 60% in the states of the deep south. Through the rest of the country, the Republican base does not turnout, and Obama claims a landslide.

Obama/Obama

It would be a semi-landslide to Barack Obama.

I don't think many Republican voters (and, no, not even White Southern Republican voters) are SO racist that they would not even vote in a race between two black candidates. Seriously.

Condoleeza Rice is hard to judge as a candidate because she's never ran for anything. But it seems to me that she would mostly be a good candidate. Also, I think her black credentials are much better than Obama's. She grew up in Alabama, no?

Uh, yeah, maybe in 1890. These are two example of large political/geographical ignorance.

I seriously doubt Obama would win many (if any) southern states but he would win by fairly large margin. The fact that Rice is pro-choice would also help to depress Republican turn out slightly.

Yes - and absolutely.

Obama/Ford (D)
Moore/Helms (C)
Rice/Sowell (R)
Williams/King (L)
McKinney/Jackson (G)

Barack Obama chooses Harold Ford as his running mate and do the best but cannot secure a majority.  A Constitution Party ticket of Roy Moore and Jesse Helms sweeps most of the South and scores a few surprises.  Condi Rice chooses Thomas Sowell as her running mate and fail to really gain anything.  Walter Williams chooses Don King as his running mate, McKinney chooses Jesse Jackson but the tickets are non-players.
