Finally the primaries are over and the dust is settling. People are still talking, some are upset, some are happy. In all honesty I would have preferred Clinton to win and not Obama, but it was in God’s will that he’d be the nominee and not her. Maybe the country is ready for a black president and not a woman.
I know that I am probably going to get flame for this, but honestly I am at a point that I don’t care who becomes president. I just don’t want McCain to be the one, in every speech I’ve heard from him all he does is reaffirm the policies that Bush has made. He has said that “if we have to be in Iraq 100 years, then that’s how long we’ll be there”, and down that line he has pretty much copied every single speech from Bush (Without the bad grammar and enunciation).
Undoubtedly McCain is a good man, who has fought for this country and obviously cares. It seems to me that he is just bugged down by party affiliations and the fear of rejection. I don’t care who you talk to anymore, republicans, democrats and independents. Everyone that is willing to accept they were wrong are pleading for this worthless war to end. Those who are sticking to their guns are doing it because they are in denial and unwilling to admit their mistake. In 2001 we were enraged and rushed into a war that ended shortly there after. But for some unknown reason we have decided to stay there and prolong something that was over a while back. We went to war to stop Saddam Hussein from developing nuclear bombs, we took him down and he has been dead for 2 years. But yet we are still fighting.
I can only hope that Obama will make the right choice and select Clinton as his running mate, if he doesn’t he will not stand a chance against McCain. Many of the Clinton supporters do not like Obama and will not be willing to support him unless she is right there beside him.
