Hillary Clinton or Obama? What do you think America? It is hard to choose. If Hillary wins she will be the first female of the united states. If Obama wins he will be the first black President of the United States. it is to bad one did not run for President and the other vice President.

Hello Phoenix! I was surprisedto see someone from Canada being so interested in the U.S.s politics. I am a die hard Rebublican and I do not want to see Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama leading this country. With that said, I am not happy at all with any of the Republican candidates running. I do know that with Bushs term over, we will need someone who will bring this country closer together and stop splitting us further and further apart.

Hi there, The truth be told, my father is American and my mother is Canadian. I have a lot of family in the US. Have cousins who served in the war and the gulf war. My sister, her husband and my neices and nephews also live in the US. I have many friends as well. The second truth is, you know Canadians love Americans! We may not love your current President, but we love our Americans. Don't feel bad we don't love our Prime Minseter either! LOL :D The fourth truth is, that many Canadians do have family ties to Americans and vice versa, many Americans have family ties to to Canadians. The final truth is that anything that happens in the US affects Canada.

Amen to that Cammeel. Not only does the country needs to be brought closer. I would like to see relationships with other countries. That is in saying that all counties have had a hand in the apparent inhouse fighting with each other, we need to stop all the crap and build bridges to better communication and relationships. The sad thing, is that our leaders start all the fighting, and the people in the country are caught in the crossfire of their battle.

I hope Obama. Hillary has had more hype surrounding her and those with a lot of hype don't always put out as much as we expect. That and he values education and will help it more. (I am getting a degree in Elementary Ed so education is a big thing for me.)

If I had anything to do with it (which I don't, I'm from the UK, but if I did) I would want Obama to win. I've been watching his videos on YouTube and he seems to be the only one who has his head securely fixed to his body. He has the right mix of decent maturaty and understanding of the young to appeal to everyone, inside and outside of the US. I know a lot of Americans might not give a damn what the rest of the world thinks of the US but I think he would pull the countries ratings up immensely, after what is probably an all time low right now. His policies are very impressive and he seems to believe in what he says, not just to please then conveniently forget like most other politicians.

The big election in America will affect the whole world. Whatever decisions Americans will be somewhat the world's future. I hope Americans will decide for the interests of the world.

I'm sorry to say this friend, but my vote is going to be based on what I feel is best for my country, not the rest of the world.

It is true that in accordance with the prevailing world order the results of American presidents elections is important for the world... But i would like to point out one point that i think is pretty amusing- the two main political parties in America does not tend to have differences in opinion when it comes to world politics.... It is the same policy of bulldozing into other's internal matters....., it may be disappointing for Americans to hear it, but it is a FACT......

First off I must point out that the decision of whom to vote for as the next President of the US should not be based on either gender or race. The decision should be an informed one based on the individual candidate's beleifs and stance on the important issues facing our country today. And, I must admit that with both a woman and a black man trying for the Democratic Nomination, I am afraid that alot of people will make their decision based on gender and race. That would not be a good thing. I was actually leaning toward voting for Hillary - based on experience and some of the things I had heard her say; however, once I actually started researching her and her beliefs and actions I began to loose both trust and faith in her. As such, she is no longer an option for me. I have found several articles and information showing that she changes her stance on the issues depending on what the voters want to hear at the time - this leads me to believe that she will follow her own agenda if she gets elected, and like most politicians forget her campaign promises and what the people actually want. This is not good. Obama could actually be a good choice. He is truely a "people person" and would also be "new blood" in the political world. He does not have a lot of experience as of yet - this could be both good and bad. Good because he is likely not to be as jaded as more experienced politicians would be, but also bad because it could cause him to make costly mistakes and make it much more difficult for him to accomplish anything. Also his lack of experience does not give the American people much background information on WHAT exactly he has accomplished as a politician up to this point. I will agree that voting the republicans back into office would probably be a large mistake, and I have not been looking to hard at the republican choices. I am still leaning toward a democrat in office, but if it comes to having to vote for Hillary or a Republican, I will be forced to vote Republican. I hope it does not come down to this.

I agree with your position that is should not based on gender and race. Yet, since this is one of the first times that either gender and race have come so close. It should be discussed. What took so long to allow a woman or a minority have a good chance to actually win. For both of these candidates, I wish they would just join together. One being President and one being Vice President. Each of them have qualities in their agenda that appeals to the people. Hillary has more experience, yet Obama has a younger worldview as opposed to a stoic old view. May the best Canidate win and May America go with their hearts.

i think Hilary clinton should win, cause women has just as much right as the men and "no defense" but men dont think right all the time, i think we need a woman in the office for awhile to fix all the problems we have and hopefully turn the economy around. Vote For Clinton
