I’m a Canadian who works closely with many people internationally and I can tell you that the majority of the people that I have spoken to globally would much rather see Barack Obama as President than Hillary Clinton. While Hillary has proven that she is a whip smart politician and policy guru, she does not represent any significant change to the White House other than the fact that she is a female and she is a Democrat. The fact of the matter is almost all of the candidates who ran and/or are running are smart policy wonks and slick politicians. This is not revolutionary. What would be revolutionary would be voting for someone like Barack Obama who exhibits a certain sincerity, honesty and hopefulness that I have not seen in a politician in the US or abroad in most of my years. Here’s why I feel the way I do:

• He basically has run a skilful and well-organized campaign, even though does not have a lot of this so-called “experience”. This to me is a foreshadowing of the way he would run his administration. I am alarmed at the amount of people in Clinton’s campaign team that have: a) been fired b) resigned, or c) defected d) do even get me started about the lack of funds. Why would anyone vote for a President who couldn’t even maintain a consistent and competent campaign team?
• While not perfect, he still has managed to keep his campaigning “above the belt” so as not to disrespect or burn bridges with his opponents. This CANNOT be said of Hillary and/or John McCain. Take a look at their latest campaign ads. They come off looking like a bunch of sore losers, not presidential. Believe me, the international community is taking note…
• Obama has handled the many crises thrown his way with dignity and class. When the whole Rev. Wright mess got brought up (we in Canada and the rest of the world cannot understand why this is a scandal. We don’t choose our leaders based on what their ministers say or do), he commiserated with concerned voters and explained his position without slinging mud at his opponents. That is to be commended, not dismissed.
• He has already won the democratic nomination. Why is this even being debated? He needs 2,025 delegates to secure the nomination and he is less for 400 away from that number. Mathematically Hillary cannot secure the nom even if she won every state primary from now until June. Why is she still running? Oh, that’s right; to steal the nomination from the one guy who actually earned it. Why does this sound eerily familiar? If this happened, the United States would have no right to condemn countries like Zimbabwe for disenfranchising voters
• With regard to Florida and Michigan, Hillary only cared about you all when she realized that she was losing. She had no problem with the DNC rules when she maintained a 30 point lead throughout 2007. Don’t believe her when she says that she believes that your votes should count. She couldn’t have cared less 5 months ago!
• The Iraq War. I rest my case.

America, please vote for Obama now for your own sake! You cannot afford to have the same old- same old in the White House. Hillary is not much different from the Republicans and well, John McCain and George Bush appear to be ‘political lovers’, so there’s no hope there. On May 6th put this race to bed by voting for Obama in Indiana and North Carolina. DO NOT BE DISTRACTED BY NON-ISSUES! Vote Obama and gain the respect of the rest of the world!!!!

Neocons and Republicans thugs on this and other boards, radios and T.V.'s are crying high and loud to get nomination of Hillary Clinton, thinking that once she is on the ticket, they can easily compared their rotten Egg (John McCain) with her in many ways and bring the big face and big nose Clinton in the field who will naturally run the White House either from his bed or from his coach.
The hardcore Whites, who have never supported even white Democrtas in the past, we should not worry about them and let them to cheer for John McCAIN, whose one leg is in his grave and barely can walk, talk and think straight.
If we elect Obama, America can stand up again in the world as the most civilized Nation and take leadership to be an honest, humane and just and fair BIG BROTHER wiping out the sins carried out by the gang of Bush-Cheney and Rumsfeld.

When is the media going to attack McCain for Rev Hagee and his hate speeches against the Catholic Church?
