Will the U.S. see its first African American President this November?
I've talked to friends in the States, who are for Obama, but feel he doesn't stand a chance up against McCain. One friend said that she read some poll months ago saying that 70% of Americans didn't believe in evolution... therefore, how would/could these ppl vote for a black president.
If Clinton gets on the ticket w/ him... will this give him a better chance?? I think so.
I personally believe he stands a chance against McCain. I believe and always have that Americans are ready for a change. Even back in the beginning when so many were saying that he's too fresh and doesn't have the experience.. I still knew he was gonna win it. The Democratic nomination... that is.
Now he practically has... only a few more days until it's really official and then it's time to start the big race for the White House. McCain has already started attacking him... actually started that months back - for he knows that he has a tough race if he goes up against him - so... what does that say? Does it mean that McCain feels like he can't win? Does it mean that he's stupid and thinks that these attacks will actually have some affect on the voters? Does he really think that anyone gives a rat's *^@! about what he thinks?!!! :)
I know there are those that are die hard McCain backers.... no matter who's running, they'll vote Republican for THEY ARE REPUBLICAN. I used to work w/ a guy that was like this... always trying to change my mind and trying to talk me into becoming a Republican - in those days I was very much a Liberal or would vote for the person who I thought would turn the White House around... and even voted for Ross Perot (if you can believe it)... believing he could definitely change America - but many didn't have the same opinion as I and his light quickly fizzled...
but anyhoo... here we are again... it's VOTING TIME and the stakes are super high this time. It'll be a first for many reasons... a first IF Obama wins and a first if Hillary runs w/ him in that she'll be the first female Vice President. I think she'd make a great Vice President... so here's to hoping it'll work out this way.
I just hope that these crazy radicals don't come out in forces and try to assassinate him either while he's running or if he wins. There are some out there that are crazy, crazy racist in the States and I could see it.....
