Hmmm... okay im not American so im probably going to be told to go away and worry about Blair. I think the next American elections are going to be really interesting (first black candidate & the first woman candidate). I like what Clinton did while he was in office (ie. Didnt kill a million people) so his woman will probably sway that way (besides women are supposed to be more thoughtful hahaha). Obama seems like an interesting case! He hasnt had a lot of publicity so we havent heard a lot about him on this side of the pond...but I have heard him speak to the mass's and he seems sparky. But realistically I dont think its going to happen, its too soon for middle America to go through such a massive transition.

lol saira ur opinion is greatly appreciated :D I do agree with u that obama is fairly new and he probably won't win but he is a very charismatic speaker i think he should at least be put on the ticket for VP and i'm surprised that u haven't heard much about him over there - he's been given rockstar status here in the US...and about clinton i liked her for a minute until i heard her speak about iraq and then i was like um ..republican wannabe :p lol those r my 2 cents on the issue

Sorry tail of a cow. We're not writing speeches for the electorate so we are allowed slight errors. #happy First woman + black candidate with an actual likelihood of atleast one of the two to kick the oval office in the next ballot.

Obama hasnt been massive news here probably because he's invested most of his campaign fund in national jamorees- so you guys (the voting lot) see a lot more of him than we do - which makes sense really. Clinton is definately front runner I'd vote for anyone who promises to sort the war out. But then again in Politician language; "Promises are there to be broken".

Based on the polls, Clinton has the Democratic nomination in her pocket. And it looks like [SIZE=-1]Giuliani's[/SIZE] leading in polls for the GOP.

Well, any presidential elect is going to continue the War on Terror, except maybe Ron Paul. He's the only remotely isolationist candidate I've heard of. And as for Barrack Obama, I doubt he'd actually invade. The last thing the U.S. needs on its hands is another invasion, especially of a nation that it considers an ally. Obama just said that to sound like he was tough on terror and because he's seen as a softy because of his relatively short time in national politics -- he was severely criticized for it too.

there can be no such thing as a war on terror, as i said.
they want two things
1)oil
2)and no one to mess with the state of israel
I support ahmadinejad's view in that we should take the whole israel/palestine region and let them vote on what should be done....and if they vote on two seperate states then the land should be divided on the basis of the two populations........if something like this happens then i assure you that the whole friggin' world would shut the hell up.
We need a Superman....u guys remember the old superman movies? i think this one was superman 4. anyway superman finds every single nuclear weapon on earth and chucks them into the sun...........then friggin bush would name superman the biggest terrorist ever.....
