Who will win?

McCain or Obama? Personally I like Obama better. Looks smarter and moves better. Also a wiser choice for his running mate. I cannot say much about the credentials of Palin but for a presidential backup, and one of the United States, I'd say I'm more than a little bit concerned... Probably didn't think it through very well, dear Mr President-wannabe-vietnam-veteran.

Anyway if I were to predict the results of the election then its an Obama win. Somehow I have an image of Ma Ying Jeou mapped onto Obama and Chen Shui Bian on the other candidate... Ma over Chen anyday... no?

I personally would prefer hilary than the 2 of the running candidates. Its a woman's thing, I do not like Obama. That said, I cannot say I am impressed by Macain.

There is something about Obama that is too slick that reminds of a sales person who would say anything to pitch and make a sale, and when deal is done, all you will see is his back and silhoutte.

I dont like how the whole campaign has become an issue of race. Like it or not, americans have gone stupid about their choice based on youth and race, and worse denying that it is so.

I do not deny Obama has a good speech delivery, but I do not like what appeared to be his flip flopping with policies.

Depending on how much was censored to external parties, what grates me the most was Obama rejection to a Born alive bill. If i rem correctly, i read somewhere where it was reported that He/ his camp said "it was a waste of resources" when he voted against it. While i think abortion should be legalised, however, fetus that remained alive despite abortion efforts should remain to live and not dying in a bin somewhere...or worse, deliberately killed when born alive...

Any one who is so callous about a life (i honestly dun care the technicalities about life definition) do not deserve to be a president as far as i am concerned. If he doesnt care for innocent life of a baby fetus, would he care about life of people he has to lead? I'm sorry i cannot be convinced by a "celebrity" candidate who claims to be a christian and yet has so little regard about life.....

Of course all these are speculations from the external world and we will never know the complete picture unless u house in the white house and live thru the veins.

Its too late now but I think this time round, united states has really presented historically two of the not so fine candidates running as their president .. and that is worrying because it actually affects the rest of the world...

I think I can see where Obama's coming from. A botched abortion will give you a "live" baby. So if the abortion was successful it doesn't mean that it wasn't a life and no one killed it. And being a lawyer, he is probably more concerned about the contradictions it may run against abortion laws.

Doctors may be scared of performing abortions in future should the baby die in their hands after the first cry. Of course killing a baby from a botched abortion is definitely inhumane. Passing the bill is going to be a real pandora's box. If the bill is passed, how will doctors go around this problem, what will doctors do? Probably kill the baby in the womb before dragging the foetus out, doing which may endanger the life of the mother.

No president's going to be perfect. That is because the present generation is living in the internet age. Just to reach all voters the presidential candidates got to go all out via the various medias to reach them. Like us, we don't wait for the 8 o-clock news or next day's newspaper anymore, we log onto the internet and find the news.

And with the U.S. elections being such a big circus, you really can't blame them for going all out. In my opinion, Hillary made a few mistakes when she was contesting against Obama as well.

And having that Obama charisma will work well for US policies. Whereas I see more Bush in McCain, I'm looking forward to change should Obama gets the vote.

But frankly speaking, at the end of the day you must agree with me that the American public will put their money on Obama, no? (^^)

There are so many states where the Dems have a wafer-thin lead in the polls, and, as is well known, what people say in an interview for a poll and how they vote can be two very different things, so the smart money might go on McCain at longer odds.

Never trust the polls. That much I know. But at a time like this (recession/meltdown), I feel that Obama is the smarter of the two. Even if he is not smarter, he probably can talk his way out of any problems eloquently.

McCain is carrying too much of a Bush-hangover... and in my opinion, the selection of Palin as a running mate is not really helping...

But i'm not an American. Maybe 50% of Americans vote for McCain because they like Palin... I don't know~

"me-no-mad" said...

yeah the polls are very subjective i heard. It seemed that some channels are very pro democrats and some are very pro republicans....

in anycase, i think mccain shot himself in the foot with his running mate choice..... and he is too much of a reminder of bush which will ultimately kill his votes.

I just do not like Obama period. Being trained from a bunch of slmiy folks in chicago knowns for the dirtiest politicians, and expect me to believe he come out smelling clean and like a rose is like expecting me "Pigs with lipstick will fly"
