if you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
Or walk with Kings-nor lose the common touch,
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds' worth of distance run,
Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it,
And -which is more-you'll be a Man, my son!

,KIM  and IF 
''''What I like about this Kipling poem are the possibilities to which it speaks,utilizing the two-lettered ''If''.
IF'' seems to rise out of its syntax as an Everest- a challenge--I dare you!
All the ideas or challenges in the poem seem to stand on the shoulders of ''if'' just as all the contexts which are presented to the American public in this ground breaking Presidential elections.
IF only George Bush hadn't invaded Iraq[ poor Rebublicans]
IF only the Administration had been monitoring the happenings on WALL STREET
if barack obama joins forces with hillary rodham clinton[not superficially]
If [and when] Barack Obama wins can he handle the economy,make peace in the Middle East and restore American goodwill overseas?
If America can judge a man''not by the color of his skin,but by the content of his character''.
