He's Done It!!!

Obama is In! Come January 20th, he will be the 44th President of the United States of America.
Today I spent my lunch time in my school library eagerly watching the CNN report on the election as it happened, hoping that the end result would be announced before I had to return to class. Unfortunately, it was not to be. The bell rang just as it was announced that Ohio had officially been won by the Democrats. I spent the next two periods fidgeting anxiously, willing time to go faster. Finally, after 100 minutes of English, the bell rang and I ran to my car. Once home, I headed straight for my television and
OBAMA HAS DONE IT. America has made the right decision.
Senator Obama has done an incredible job getting to this position. I am eager to see how President Obama will deal with the economic crisis, as it, for obvious reasons, did not appear in his original mission statement and he has avoided stating exactly which of his original plans he will be forced to sacrifice on account of it.

This is a truly historical election, and I have full confidence that he will be a great leader.

Election day!!!

Today is Election Day! Well, technically, it's tomorrow, stupid time difference. But I will rant and rave about it today, because on my side of the world, it is the 4th.
So, despite the fact that I am neither old enough nor of the right nationality to cast my vote, I maintain an adamant belief that Senator Obama must be elected president of the USA, because failure to do so, that is Senator McCain being elected, will result in utter disaster.
Obviously, I support Senator Obama, and here are my reasons why:
1. Senator Obama has maintained a consistently liberal voting record, despite this often making him unpopular among many of his peers.
2. Whilst I thought it highly unlikely that Obama would win the support of the Democratic Party over Hillary, I was thoroughly impressed by his decision to take on the Clintons, as they represent such a strong power base in American politics. I was pleasantly surprised to discover that he had, in fact, won.
3. By the very nature of being multinational, he represents the country that America sees itself as being more than any other candidate. America truly seems to be ready for change and he represents that.
4. As he was elected the president of the Harvard Law Review, he has already proven that he is more than capable of successfully defying the 'rules' set down by white, conservative traditionalism.
5. At no point has he ever supported any part of this illegal war America seems to find itself stuck in. Not Once!
6. Due to his belief that the civil rights movement is far from over, he plans to fight employment discrimination and eliminate sentencing disparities.
7. By earning back the respect of foreign leaders and ordinary foreign citizens, like myself, Obama seems more than capable of repairing the broken image the rest of the world has of the USA and partially restoring America's reputation.
8. He is prepared, as an experienced civil rights lawyer, to give the Department of Justice a much needed overhaul.
9. His health care plan involves preventative medicine not just treatment, which may be less lucrative for pharmaceutical companies, but better for the country's citizens.
10. His plans to solve the environmental and energy crises are not only eco-smart, but politically practical.

These points, plus an amazing strength of character, have, for me, sprouted a great, and ever increasing, sense of respect for and belief in Senator Obama.
