..or Nader, or whomever. This isn't aimed at only Americans, as I'm sure many foreigners are following the presidential race. Myself, I voted for Obama in the Cali primaries (first time voting!), but I can't say why. I wouldn't call myself a Democrat, or even really a liberal, or even really an Obama supporter. Just another dumb youth following the Obama trend, I guess... :(

All in all, politics is really depressing- this race especially. It is kind of exciting to follow in a way, but more like a football game to me than an intelligent discussion of uh, issues. Not a novel observation, I'm sure- but anyone have any thoughts as the primaries draw sort of closer to a sort of finish?

I'd like to make an actual paragraph long post on the subject, but lets be honest. McCain is going to win. A black man and a woman are never going to beat an aged war veteran in the minds of Americas braindead working class.
Even if Obama did get elected, he'll never actually get any where in regards to universal health.


All I can hope is that I don't have to move back to America any time soon, and can stay in a country where when I feel ill I don't have wonder if it's worth paying to have my blood drawn.

You really think America is going to have it's first black president?
