And how much of middle America, actually, how much of America full stop, have read Obama's book? All the public are going to hear is bland, middle of the road stuff... He just panders to the popular vote.
Middle America are being told what they need to know. Asides, its not like most of them deserve to be able to vote.

MCcain is stiff as ****, dude needs to relax.
Plus he is probably going to die before his presidency is up.
Mccain is a war hero, not presidential material, sure he was in a war and captured and all that good stuff, SO WHAT???
Obama can bring change and I think he is what America needs, he can calm tensions in the middle east whereas I can see Mccain just aggrevating them and making the situation worst.

Obama for several reasons

He is a Democrat. McCain is a Republican
McCain's opinions are very similar to Bush
Obama represents everything that McCain doesn't and a change in the way international relations would operate

and lots more reasons I don't have time to write

And you prefer the absence of concrete policies entirely? I just love how people buy "Reduce taxes on the working class". How the hell does he intend to do that? Polling?!
Presumably by increasing tax on the rich? Which I agree with.

Wouldn't just shoving Iraq away within 18 months increase tensions between American & the Middle east? Is Iraq at a stable stage in its development? I'm quite on the fence with this. I know a lot of people who want Obama simply because he's black and has got a good "warmth" and good rhetoric. And there are a lot of folk on youtube almost pissing themselves with videos calling Obama the anti-christ and a communist. But yes, I'm on the fence, I suppose. Nor do I claim to know a lot about it.

All i can say is that if America votes Mccain, its either fixed and/or America is doomed to fail and cause world war three, and piss off iran, and Gordon brown will be a dumb **************** and follow Mccains old ass then we're ****ed as well.

Oh, and sorry to hijack the thread; but I've always had a little curiosity about it: How well received was Bill Clinton? Was he widely accepted as a good president, or not?

Obama...

Because America is not a true democracy and only has two political parties... and once you cross out the Republicans, you're left with Obama. And his foreign policy is less aggressive and more friendly, as the US should be.

Who's rich? Who's working class? Where do I draw the line. That's the point I'm making. And this whole "tax the rich thing" is such a jealous policy... Why not spread out the wealth entirely evenly between everyone? And call each other comrades?

Contrary to popular belief on foreign policy Obama has been quite hawkish as well, considering bombing parts of Pakistan without the approval of the Pakistani government. Now I'm no president(even though I'm as qualified as Obama probably :p:) but bombing a nuclear nation - not always an intelligent decision.

OBAMA
Reason: He symbolises change for the better - help erode the corruption which is instilled in America's so-called democratic nation.

He represents the voice of the unheard millions who have been silienced by the self-serving Republicans & the elites.

Don't you think that's a bit racist :confused:
lol I looked at his profile and turns out he's not black. Yup, I'm confused as well.

I'd vote for Obama. I think the republicans have done enough damage, and since McCain and Bush are pretty much synonymous, I wouldn't like to see him in power. Also, if he's in power for one term (due to age), then wouldn't he simply be bringing in an inexperienced person anyway? Most people hadn't even heard of the his VP before she was mentioned.
And those who say Obama has no concrete policies, you mean not as 'concrete' as McCain's. But, history tells us elecotral policies are rarely kept so you believing McCain's words are just as arbitrary as accepting 'vague' policies.

I would like to see Obama win, but I think it's unlikely he will. Obama is just being paraded by the media, because he is a black man. America is still largley a right wing country and when it comes to it, they will vote for McCain. America is not a country of change and I don't think they are ready for a Liberal president, let alone a black Liberal president.
