Our cousins across the pond vote today. They'll vote not only for who should be president but at state level on a number of "issues" (which arguably tells you more about the country than who they choose to be president.
It looks a certainty that Obama will win. But I guess there are no certainties, how firm is Obama's support? Will the young get off their backsides and vote? If they don't then they have only themselves to blame.
I do find it amusing when I hear Republicans describe Obama as at best a Socialist and almost a communist. By British standards he most definitely would not be described as a socialist but the British are much more Liberal on certain issues.
So who would I vote for? As I've said before I actually think McCain is the better candidate. I may not agree with him on certain issues but I think he is more grounded with where we are than Obama. And if I'm honest I don't understand what Obama stands for. He wants to change, heal, build bridges but I'm not sure how he is going to do it. He reminds me of Tony Blair. BUT if I had a vote I would vote for Obama because the idea of a creationist moose hunter who has never been outside of the US like Sarah Palin as President of the US scares the living daylights out of me.
