During my very recent trip to New York, I discovered that few people are waffling between McCain and Obama, except those who can't stand either of them.
For those who have always wanted a choice, this is the year. What could be more different than this year's U.S. Presidential nominees? And forget about skin color! Just look at their ages, military experience, life experience, marital history, family background. Need I go on? Oops! I left out policies, but that's because in a Yes, Minister kind of way, they usually get "evened out" once in office.
Maureen Dowd writes complaining that it's hard to for comedians to get a grip on Obama. Honestly, I think the real reason is because he seems so anorexic. His thinness isn't from a Bobby Kennedy type of hyperactivity; it's more like a culinary nouveau riche attitude towards food and life.
Obama's "change" slogan is brilliant, but if it wasn't for the "pc" guilt-trip re: his skin color, I don't think he would have had a chance.
Good Luck America and Good Luck World!
