Who should become the next US president?
« on: September 04, 2007, 06:48:22 AM »

I don't know the candidates that well yet, I'll have to see some debates before I can really form an opinion, but so far I think Obama looks like a very decent guy.

I already think it's great that there's a chance that the USA will get a black or a female president after 43 straight white males in a row.

I don't think we've really heard them speak enough to come to any sort of conclusive decision. At least I haven't. But I have my leanings.

Someone should start a thread about the new prime minister or something. Or is that not a big deal over there? Doesn't really seem to be. Which is interesting. I'd start one, but I know nothing about the guy. I can't even think of his name at the moment. Gordon?

I think Hillary has a good chance. Bill was a popular president and I think that people expect Hillary to be pretty much identical to her husband politically. I also think a lot of women will vote for her simply because she's the first woman who's got a chance to become president.

the problem with hillary is that shes trying to appease to many people at once and is losing the focus of the campaign.

Don't matter who we get in to lead they will order us to kill. In an election I choose to vote for myself. The system is evil but just because there are no better ones don't mean that I should vote for an evil one. Only you can lead yourself.

I'd like to know what people think of Giuliani. What he did for NYC was amazing. I mean, if you were there in the 70's and 80's, it was a real crap hole. Now it's like Disney. The guy can get things done and he's pretty liberal for a republican. I still haven't made my mind up one way or the other though. I'm trying not to let the fellow New Yorker Italian thing bias me, but you know.  ;)

I actually like Hilary for the most part, although I don't agree with her stance on gay marriage. (I think civil unions are kind of lame. Just let them get married already!) However, I don't think she will win. The United States might be ready to elect a black president, but not a woman one. Especially not one with so much baggage.

I wouldn't exactly call it a pro war stance. From what I've heard, she thinks that getting into the war in the first place was a big mistake, but to withdraw now would cause more problems. I don't agree with that either, but like I said, not exactly a pro war stance.

This I don't know about. I think she has a real shot. If she's able to develop some sort of personality in the months to come I'd say she has a damn good chance of being our first female president. Plus some people think it's a two for one thing with Bill.

I don't know. It seems Britain is just so ahead in these things. I don't think Canada will elect a woman PM either. I mean, we have had one already (Kim Campell) but she wasn't elected, she was appointed because Brian Mulroney resigned.

You do have a point about the two-for one thing, though. That was a big part of Bill's campaign.

Yeah!

Marriage is something between a man and a woman two people that love each other.
