Barack Obama

I don't know enough about American politics... but from what I have heard on the TV debates / news and what I have read online... if I were American, I would support Barack Obama.

That said... I would love to see Obama go head to head with Mike Huckabee who is a Republican candidate who greatly impressed me. America needs some new leadership... new blood... new ideas... a change from the in it for the few mentality of GWB. Obama and Huckabee represent this, in my opinion.

As an outsider looking in... I really hope America gets this.

I believe with great conviction that Barack Obama should be the next President. I have been paying close attention to him since the Democratic convention in 2004. I feel that he is more a statesman than a politician. He was against the war when it was an unpopular position (and Hillary was for the war at that time), Obama is for energy and environmental conservation. He is for healthcare reform.
I get that.

You're right, there's something about Obama that places him apart from a number of other Democratic candidates. At least he's head and shoulders above the awful Hillary Clinton. Describing him as "statesmanlike" is a good a term as any. Compare that with the air of "career politician" that I get from clinton.

Huckabee, I suspect may fall by the wayside in the Republican ranks. I read a report of him cosying up to Televangelist and prosperity fraudster Kenneth Copeland. I can only read this as a desperation move for the former Baptist pastor to bolster his prospects against McCain.

I'd be voting Mr Obama too. Hope your enjoying your 'jolly' in the US Thomas!

Gotta admit, there's definitely something of the Statesman about Barack. His oratory skills are pretty impressive.
