I haven’t written very much about Obama.  But I can’t wait until he is our next president.  He is pretty far ahead in the polls.  McCain/Palin should just pack it in now.

It is good to be teaching a course on Race, Ethnicity and Immigration just as this historical election is about to take place and with Obama almost certainly going to win.

I also watched his political ad tonight.  I thought it was fantastic.  Hopefully things will sail smoothly until next Tuesday and we can all look forward to quite a different atmosphere in this country.  I’m also looking forward to some high level changes in terms of gay and lesbian rights.  Sure, Prop. 8 may pass.  But sooner or later, the Supreme Court will overturn all of these discriminatory laws and we can all be free again from religious persecution.

    I\’ve been so undecided for months now, of course leaning more toward the right, however the past recent events that have taken place in my life has made me seen the light on the left.  I\’ve been reading a lot and researching about both candidates and I may have come to a decision.  🙂    A huge difference in the way I used to vote…   Still not sure though.   The way Obama has been answering a lot of questions lately has left such a positive impression upon me, and oddly enough, McCain has really been disappointing me with his half-ass answers.   I\’ve been doing all I can to educate myself better for this election.  What a grueling year it has been for these candidates and us!

    Hi Deb!
    I totally agree–it has been a grueling year!  I know that what Obama put out the other night was a paid political ad, but I found myself hoping desperately that he becomes our next president.  He seems like a ray of hope in all this doom and gloom of the Bush years. 
    And on top of this national election, I\’ve been getting worried about Prop. 8 and the possibility that it will pass.  I really hope it won\’t but I\’ve been trying to prepare myself in case it does.  And the only preparation I have made is to order my marriage license so that I can have it before it might get cancelled by a vote by the people.  I\’ll need it to remind myself that I was once married…

    Kevin, I would not get to excited just yet, the Republicans are good at stealing elections. I have been humored by the Scoialist accusation from the McCain  campaign, since buying up the banks is more in line with socialism than taxing.

    Hey Rob!
    I am trying not to get too excited and I know that anything can happen.  But I just can\’t imagine this country going through another 4 years of a Bush-look-alike.

    A perfect candidate (one with whom we can agree on EVERY issue) we will never find. Every voter has the right (and, even more, the RESPONSIBILITY) to choose the one that BEST represents their interests and that back that candidate up to the hilt. Like Kevin, I will be voting for Senator Obama next Tuesday but whether you agree with that choice or not VOTE—if you don\’t you have no kick coming. As for Republicans stealing elections—with all the prominent Republicans who have endorsed Senator Obama (including General Colin Powell who was Reagan\’s National Security Advisor before going on to become Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and Secretary of State) I don\’t think there\’s enough PARTY-wide support for the McCain/Palin ticket that they\’ll try it this time around.
