I'm not a citizen of the usa.

I do follow the presidential elections from the beginning. And i'm an obama-fan from the beginning. He's the only one who can bring REAL change. But with Hillary as Vice of course.

And BTW OFF COURSE you can talk about politics on a ST-forum. Gene, himself created the series to comment on modern human society and I believe, IHMO, that Obama is the one the mostly goes with my believes.

I saw John McCain make a speech just after Obama made one.

Obama was powerful, dynamic with real belief and strength in his voice.

McCain looked old, tired, exhausted in comparison.

I'm a Ron Paul supporter myself but he doesn't have a chance. I'm a die-hard Republican but I did vote for Clinton on his second term simply because he had a strong cabinet in place. This time around I am going to focus on the cabinet choices more than the presidential candidate alone. I'm not sure if I have the heart to vote for McCain and MIGHT possibly go with Obama/Huckabee but I have to do A LOT more research to see where they will lead the USA.

One point. Something HAS to be done about USA's international image. We have plenty of foreign governments that don't approve of our actions now and we need to get back to fixing OUR problems before trying to "police" the world. We need to focus on tightening our borders WHILE making the immigration process more streamlined ( and cheaper ) for those who want to become citizens. For those that are here and don't -- send them packing. We ( the USA ) are in DIRE need of motivated ( and intelligent ) individuals to immigrate here and improve our brain-trust.

I can't see any possible way for HRC to go as a running mate for Obama. I think that doesn't work. It has to be a person, that will run for president in 8 years. And I think, that will be to late for HRC.

@jevans:
You spoke about a very important fakt: The cabinet.
This is for me the missing link... Poorly in Germany we have not enough background information about the people, which will support the candidates (Only a list about the hollywood-stars)

I think, HRC can build about the old team of Bill. But Obama, who are the specialists for Obamas cabinet?

It is interesting to hear about so much supporters for Ron Paul in this forum. I have not very much informations about him. What are his ideas for a prospery goverment?

Congratulations Barack with your 10th victory in a row. On to the White House.

The fact that you think Hilary is scary is the only reason you need not to vote for her. Other than that should it matter if a family has been in for 100 years as long as they are good?

Barack also took the abroad vote so that's now 11 wins in a row. Hillary's facing budget problems left and right, her ground operations are falling apart, she's lost the state count and the overall delegate count and her husband seems to be nailing some extra nails in the coffin. The ONLY thing she has right now is a superdelegate lead and almost everyone acknowledges that as undemocratic. The debate tonight will be interesting but if she doesn't clean up on the 4th it's just a matter of time before she goes the way of Mitt Romney.

I've voted Republican for POTUS back to Reagan. I am going with Obama this time around (assuming he gets the Democratic nod) come November. I disagree with some of his stances, but agree with more/most of the ones that really matter to me. Some say his message of hope, positivity and a desire for change is empty. May be, it's up to all of us to make it work. When it comes to experience, McCain, Clinton and Obama are legislators, not executives. They're all on a pretty even playing field there.

Regardless of who any of us vote for, the important thing is to get out there and do it.

I guess the question for some people becomes "would you rather have hope with no plan or a plan with no hope?"

HRC is only leading in Texas and Ohio with a small distant.
The yesterday depate seems to me 50:50.
I think, CoW mAn is right. If she doesn't have a big victory on March 4 th (and it doesn't look like for a big deal) she will go back to senate.
