    In the first debate, how many times did Obama say: "John/Senator McCain is absolutely right"? He looked like a follower, not a leader.

    Why does saying "my friends" make McCain sound crazy? He wants to address lots of voters and influence them, calling them "friends" does the job.

    The Federal Reserve, Freddie Mac, Fannie Mae are either Government organisations or exist only with Government guarantee. The corporations rule America because the politicians pander to them and give them privileges... elect a real politician who doesn't and there WILL be change.

    WHAT!!!
    Have you been asleep for the entire time George Bush has been president. Have you not noticed how much he's f***ed up the US not to mention how much he's f***ed up Iraq, Iran and the bloody UK too!

    Bush is really stupid and he's a Christian. Obama goes to Church and so does McCain - Palin thinks she's fighting witches and demons. It's like America can't shrug it off.

    Imo Obama is he man for the job. As far as a British person is concerned, he is less likely to either obliterate the economy or drag us into a war with some foreign country that doesn't affect us. Also, he doesn't have the winner combination of skin cancer and sarah palin as a running mate, which could result in a bimbo creationist believer who is against abortion even in the case of rape, and cites her foreign policy experience as being able to see Russia from Alaska being president... Nuff said

    p.s. In before Yuffie harps on about ageism!

    The new ad about Bill Ayers is potentially dangerous. Not to Obama's lead, but to his image among people that already dislike him. There are people who actually think the Democratic Party's nominee for president is a terrorist. And the claims and ads and speeches with all their tenuous links and repetition of Obama's OMGTERRORIST middle name, are just stoking the fires of the rednecks (I'd rather not call them conservatives until I'm sure they know what the word means). Well, McCain is playing defence, after all, trying to hold on to Bush states. I really thought it was beneath him, and that America could just have a contest between two great candidates for the presidency.

    I was going to ask the same thing. I figured people were making a big deal about it on this forum due to cultural differences. Maybe "my friends" sounds funny to non-Americans?

    I'm still kind of pessimistic about this whole thing of a black president. I'm really not sure the Americans are ready for it. Perhaps there will be a difference between what people say in opinion polls and general discussion, and what they actually vote for on the day-- in the booth, secure and in confidence. There might be (possibly large) a difference there I think.
    why does everything have to always be able skin color? If Obama loses (which seems very unlikely) it will be because he is the most radical and inexperienced politician to run for president in US history
