OT: The Next President

Hi Pters!

I am not American, but we are all watching your elections with utter fascination. I am fascinated to know what you think about Obama vs Clinton and who your think will ultimately be your next president.

Thanks

You luckily aren't seeing the mud slinging. I am a democrat, so I am happy that I am being represented by either by a woman or an African American man. More so, I plan on voting for either one, because I whole-heartedly want America out of the war, and the republican candidate (who is ancient) is plannning on staying in indefinately.

I was actually rooting for Hillary until she came up with that stupid gas tax break... it revealed that she would not stick to fiscal responsibility if she could get a political gimmick out of it. I think Obama will get the democratic nomination and then the real fun will begin. I will be very interested to see if white America can support a black candidate... I have my doubts. McCain will destroy our economy even more than bush has.. I think if the Iraqis are forced to stand up for themselves, they will be ready... I hope so. We need to stop this.

I heard that some big shot is predicting $7/gal gasoline. We can't fight a war at those prices..

As a Democrat,

I am ashamed of my party and what a mess it has made of these primary elections. I think Howard Dean and the head honchos of the party really screwed this up, and we're clearly in four yet ANOTHER 4 years of Republican party rule.

I will be switching to Independent, and deciding in November who I will be voting for, whether the candidate be McCain, an Independent Clinton or a surprise Bloomberg. I cannot bring myself to vote for the sham of a man that is Barack Obama.

McCain interests me because he is hated by the extreme right wing in the us. Which means he is doing something right. Obama interests me because he is a man of obvious intelligence. But I wonder what is core beliefs are. I'm not bothered that he is close to some people who are crazy (aren't we all?), but he expressed a real indifference to their behavior. And some of that stuff is really insulting to most of the country. It just took him so long to say "those people are just crazy."

I'm sad Hillary is done. She is the smartest of the bunch. I'm leaning to McCain, but could be convinced to vote for Obama if I got a better sense of who he is.

I think that the media has far too much influence in telling people who to vote for. For most of the primary season, they gave Obama a free ride. They loooooove Obama. Whereas, they give a more balanced picture of McCain and Clinton, and the fact is that all three have a few warts.

I am ecstatic that our candidates this year have been diverse, also including Bill Richardson of NM, an Hispanic. Up until this point I have been despairing that the 2-party system would ever give us real CHOICES.

And I think it is great that it has really been a race between candidates for the democratic nomination. People are excited about voting! And even the last states to vote really count! North Carolina was pretty much disenfranchised in the last last presidential election, for instance -- it did not even hold a primary! This year it was a major state. This is a HUGE boost for our system.

Personally, of the candidates remaining I think Hillary is the best. But I will definitely vote for Obama if he wins the nomination. Or let me put it this way -- I will vote against McCain. I am a scientist, and McCain has shown himself to be anti-science in many cases. I am pro-choice, and McCain is rabidly against a woman's right to choose -- and in fact, I think he is misogynist in many respects. I think he will keep us in Iraq for longer than we need to be there. And I think he is too old to lead a demographically young nation.
