 Who would you want to tell about the 2008 election if you could go back in time?

The Grand Wizard of the Ku Klux Klan in 1960, whoever that was.

Jesse Helms, just to tell him that that Obama would win North Carolina. I'd also want to tell Orval Faubus and Theodore K. Bilbo.

Obama's dad.

"You, after traveling all the hell around the world, knocking up random women everywhere, have fathered the future President of the United States of America. So keep on going, your genes got magic in them, see if you can father any other cool people! Playing the numbers like you do, the odds are in your favor."

Why do so many people here cheer on war crimes?
Israel and the United States "killing dozens of civilians with explosives", as you phrase it, has, throughout history, almost always been a good thing.

You know, I wonder what the reenactors at Plimoth Plantation and Colonial Williamsburg have been instructed to say. The Pilgrims wouldn't have any idea about the United States or a diverse society, but the Williamsburg residents surely would. I am sure kids will be asking.

LBJ. He said he was costing the Democrats the South for a generation... it turns out to have been two, but in the end, Obama won a few states.

Otherwise, Frederick Douglass.

How about going back to 2005 and telling Hillary Clinton?

 The problem with going back in time is that it might change history! For example, somebody could try to stop Obama.
