Ok, I know that this question has been asked in a poll but when it was asked no one had accepted the nomination from their party. This is a tech site I know and the moderators might take this thread off because of lack of intrest or other reasons. The reason that I ask is because I was in a college level group discussion, and one member of my group said he was voting for Mccain because the U.S. is not ready for a black president. It took all of my energy not to start an argument with this kid ( I just convinced my self that he was not intelligent enought to understand any thing I had to say.). I'm no geneius, but I am smart enough to know we should never judge a person on race period, weather or not you think the country is ready for a leader of a different race. I guess the reason I started this thread is to make sure (for my own well being) that there are people out there with real reasons why one canidate is better then the other. Please What ever your political affiliation or belief answer this thread I like to hear what other people think of the candidates. Personally I am going to vote for Obama, I like his energy policy, I think we should find renewable sources of energy. I dont like the Idea of off shore drilling or nuclear energy but I also know that developing these renewable energies will take time and money. I have other views but to go into all of them would make this thread alot longer then it need to be so that is the only one I'm going to post.
