Hobbits: Fate of Men?

From Tolkien Gateway:

"Hobbits were considered Men. Nearly all scholars agree that Men were closely related to Hobbits, far more closely than Men were to either Elves or Dwarves. It was thus commonly assumed that Hobbits were among the Younger Children of Ilúvatar and were the result of the same act of creation as Men. This would imply that Hobbits had the Gift of Men to pass entirely beyond Arda."

Thoughts? Would it be possible for them to pass Beyond the Circles of the World?
