U.S. Elections 2008

Here it is, a post about the US elections to be held some time this year Im not sure of the date, but then I have not looked and I am in England. I thought it was about time I said something about what I thought anyway.

Regardless who it is that wins and becomes the President of the U.S.A, this election is history in the making with either the first female US president or the first black US president. I have not looked into what these candidates have said or done in the run up to the elections other than Mrs Clinton accidentally mistaking the smiling happy faces of children in a far flung war zone for gun fire from an unknown sniper, hey its an easy mistake to make I mean I personally have taken to wearing a kevlar vest when I take my kids to school on a morning just incase I see some smiling children.

If I am to be honest, without knowing all or any of the facts about either of these people I would like to see Obama as the US president for one reason only. He would be the first black US president, looking back to the race riots of the 50`s and 60`s. Black people being made to sit at the back of the bus, separate schools, separate shops etc to running on of the most powerful countries on the planet. MR Martin L King Would back flip with pride. while in the deep south the White power red necks would just freak. It is said that the cost of the Presidential Elections has run into Billions of dollars. But as Mastercard would say. To see the look on the white supremacy faces as Obama wins the US Election would be "Priceless"
