This election is a joke. Now, before people go off on me, this isn't to say that I don't love my country or that I don't appreciate the process. Now, onto what I feel: This election is all about voting for whatever candidate you agree with on the war. Other than that the three candidates are virtually the same. Barack Obama- A Junior senator that is only a viable candidate because the DNC finally found someone as smooth talking as their king, Bill Clinton. Obama has virtually no experience, certainly no foreign experience, but can talk his way out of anything. However, what isn't being said is how much money his "change we can believe in" is actually going to cost. Senator Obama, should he win, is going to be in for a huge surprise once he is in the Oval Office. Hopefully he will have the brains to put good people around him, and by good I mean experienced. Otherwise, it is like throwing a new born in the deep end of the pool, someone had better be waiting in the wings to dive in and rescue him. Hillary Clinton- Yet another Clinton juggernaut. She entered the race as the candidate to beat, knowing full well that people would be so frustrated with the Bush Administration that her victory should be guaranteed. Yet when someone else comes in, she ends up folding. A simple testament to her lack of having the true experience to fight. Barack Obama has beaten her by sticking with the issues, and for once the Clinton tactic of dig up as much as possible and selectively releasing it through the media and various sources failed. And it failed miserably because for once a candidate decided he didn't have to fold to them. He stayed positive and stayed on message. John McCain- A testament to the homage of "last man standing." After previous failed attempts, McCain finally gets his hour in the spotlight, and thanks to the bitter division in the Democratic Party, maybe 4 years in the White House. However, McCain offers little above the Democrats. While I do agree with his stance on the war, I believe that 4 years of a McCain Administration will lead to us having to change our native tongue to spanish. McCain is unbelievably soft on the issue of illegal immigration, and we will soon see the results. A McCain administration would lead to an influx of illegals that would overrun major parts of our country and would lead to a huge culture shift. One taht I believe would be for the worst. Simple research into these candidates will show that their "programs" are going to cost somewhere between 3-10 Billion dollars at the least, and none of the three are concerned with paying down our national debt, drilling for oil where we need to be drilling, or protecting our family values. This election has turned into a giant circus, and the victims are us, the citizens of the United States that for one reason or another, can not run for political office.

Although I must say I agree with you on some areas Putting Mr.McCain in office we might as well put bush in there and WEll I just dodnt like Obama He is a smooth talker but I can not help to think there is some underlying reason for him to be in office something that just isnt good at all as Far as Hillary well you say that she is not a fighter I do not agree there at this point in time in america I think she would be the best for this contry and I feel she has the expericence to run this country and run it good I feel a lot of ppl undermind her! Out of the 3 Obama. McBush (mcCain) and Clintion well I musth say I am going for clinton I think alot of it has to do with the fact that she is a female and the fact that we have such hard headed men in america how vote for the one that is best and not look at the fact if its a women or man!

I'm incensed about the way Mrs. Clinton has ben treated. I'm also supporting her until the end. At least, I'll be able to say "I told you so" to all the Democrats who were determined to run the weaker candidate. (And I will) Did these people learn nothing from the defeat of John Kerry? Only moderate democrats make it to the White House.

Okay, but I'll probably make some people mad but I am entitled to my opinion-hey, isn't that why we're here, to share our opinions? Here goes: I would never vote for a woman for president, I feel that she has grossly over-stepped her boundaries and should back off and in this case, she has already been president! HA! And... I don't vote for people who don't recognize Christianity as the only faith-based religion to have and in this case, seems he likes being misguided in his "faith." And... I hate the economy as it is now and believe it should be changed or altered to help the American people to better themselves, not destroy our prosperity, however, I will be happy and proud to vote for Mr. McCain as I feel he is the best candidate to serve our country as well as my expectations for our future. Thanks!

That's a wonderful invitation and I'd love to participate but I feel that being an Aussie excludes me. Besides that, I don't have a political bone in my body. I do think it's very strange that Obama seems like a nobody who has appeared out of nowhere. I've heard he's never had a job and I've heard that they are a wealthy family so where has the money come from....possibly his maternal grandparents who raised him. It's all a bit fishy. From what I've seen and heard of Mrs Clinton she is a dangerous woman in my opinion. She's lied, been caught and shrugged it off; produced tears to show her sensitive side and I've heard she is brutal in her treatment of people in her employ. Neither of these people seems to me to be fit to rule the most powerful country in the world.

I am so sick of people degrading Hillary.I feel she would make the best President.I feel that people could leave the best candidate behind and lose out.America is in deep trouble and needs a good helping hand before things get worse.
