Who makes a better President for us people Hillary or Obama and why?
I am not sure about Obama. He says that he wants to change the way things work, but the government's structure is designed to resist change. I have the feeling that he is either saying what he really wants (but can really bring about because of ignorance or inexperience or both) or he is saying what he thinks will get him elected (which makes him dishonest and untrustworthy).
I don't trust Hilary at all. I watched her campaign for re-election in New York in 2006 saying that she would serve her full six year term as a Senator, only to run for president within the next few months. Also Bill will always be close beside her if she is elected, and we have seen from experience that he will lie forever until he's caught and not think a thing about it.
I'm not too impressed with the field either. I honestly don't trust any of them, with the possible exception of Huckabee. However, I have heard his economic plans and they scare the poop out of me.
I think I will have to write in my dad. I won't even put his name; I'll just write "my dad." That would be neat if he actually won the state of Pennsylvania with one vote. Then I could hear the news casters say "someone's dad won PA, but we don't know who it is."
Good advice, jtom99. I'd vote differently to you, but you're right that the issues are largely meaningless if the president isn't strong enough to lead anyway.
The French presidency seems a good example (I live in France but can't vote here). The voters had a choice between a female idealist from the Left, who didn't honestly look strong enought to lead, and a male pragmatist from the Centre Right who looked like he might be able to make a difference as president. A lot of people voted for him even though they didn't like him, because they felt he would be the stronger president.
It looks like they were a bit optimistic though... Do you get French news where you are? All very embarassing at the moment... Mills and Boon romances... Oh dear...
McCain is best for this country. His military experience, ability to work with both parties, depth of knowledge of foreign affairs, his frankness dealing with the media, and his fiscal responsibility make him the prime candidate.
I'll tell you one thing...a candidate's position on issues like health care, education, and stuff like that do not matter. A president could (and should) have no hand in that stuff, and it's been rare for a president's complete agena to be made law without major changes. So don't vote for a candidate based on what they say they will do or change. Vote for them based on their experience, knowledge, and leadership ability.
That's why McCain will get my vote.
Not Hilliary, please not Hilliary. She is quite obviously the spawn of the devil! :]
McCain was alright in my opinion, but then almost every political ad I watched of his contained stuff about his participation in the Vietnam War and that annoyed me!
I like Obama and I was rooting for Gravel.
I do think we should have a women presadent but hillary cliton isnt it she might be ok for mabe goviner of a small town lol but not america oh God if hillary cliton was presadent WE WILL ALL DIE!!!
and for obama I dont really know much about him
Between the two I would have to choose Obama. I don't trust Hilary and I think Obama would make more positive change. I also think Obama would put us in a more positive light for foreign relations because he's from a minority.
I would like hilary as prez she is my role model. And she had already been in the white house so she knows what is was like for her husband...
Hillary and Obama are not the only candidates. I would prefer someone more like Mccain (but pro abbortion)
My opinion, neither of those 2 - thank goodness they aren't the only ones running !!
Neither for me, but that is just my opinion. I'd be more for Huckabee or Ron Paul.
I'd say Obama. Who wants a women pressy?
Oh I can't believe I left him out...I like McCain as well.
Cool, what do you think about romney winning in michigan?
