Chuck D: ‘Barack Obama is the right man for the job’

Public Enemy mainman analyses the presidential race

Public Enemy‘s Chuck D has given his support to Barack Obama in the race to be the next Democrat candidate and the next President of the USA.

However, the rapper also explained that he’s worried the state of the country won’t allow Obama to fulfil his duties.

Speaking to NME.COM, Chuck D said: “I think Barack Obama is the right man for the job, but maybe in the wrong country right about now that will be able to treat it right and give him the pressures that will not allow him to do the job.”

He also explained his doubts about Obama‘s rival, Hillary Clinton, saying: “I did originally think they were going to be a dream team together but Hillary has put so much foot in her mouth it makes that a rather difficult thing to look at.”

Chuck D also warned against the Republican candidate, saying: “Beware of John McCain choosing Condeleezza Rice [as his Vice-Presidential candidate] ’cause Condeleezza Rice is a Republican for life and they’ll do anything to win.”
