If your candidate does not win the presidency, which is a big possibility, what do you think your reaction will be? Will you size up the victor and see how his actions match his words, or if they don't?
I was thinking about this the other day and I realize that there is a whole lot of needed healing and needed sense of hope in the country. My choice is Obama because I believe he can provide that the best.
If for some reason he loses and McCain is president, I plan on seeing what McCain can do as president before I criticise. During the campaign, it's normal that we criticise each others candidates that we don't agree with.
The candidates do the same thing. They are very critical of each other and at times, hostile, but when the election is over they generally shake hands and agree to disagree regarding their core differing issues while looking for common ground of what can help.
In the meantime, the losing party/candidate keeps working towards their political goals for the next election campaign. If the new president does a great job, no matter what the losing team touts is their agenda, they are not likely to be elected for a second term.
What is bothering me is some of the blatantly false info being dished out about the candidate I choose. First of all, calling him an "Arab" is not true, but if it was, why should people of Arabic ethnic origin be outcasted? Or people that are truly Muslim- be outcasted? Is that any better than what the Germans did to the Jews in WW2?
