Vote for Obama - at least my son wants me to!

This is not a political endorsement of any sort because I'm not affiliated with Democractic or Republican party, yet! However I had an interesting conversation with my 5-year old son about upcoming presidential elections. He'd like me to vote for Barack Obama because of the following 3 reasons:
  • Likes his face (and does not like McCain's)
  • Likes his name (and not McCain's)
  • Thinks he'll do the right thing for the country (because he looks like that)
Guess "Change We Can Believe In" is working :)

The conversation started because one of Obama supporters was handing out Obama button (complete range) outside the Expo Hall of San Francisco Marathon. I had gone there to pick up my shirt, bib etc. and then showed the button to my son this morning :)

You can always make them fight here. Here are some other trends:









Tech Crunch interviewed the candidates in January 2008 which shows their position on technology related issues.

What websites are you using to monitor your favorite candidate ? :)

What a hypocrite!!! Obama says McCain attacks him rather than talk about the issues? Obama is the one who has consistently promoted his 'star' status, rather than come up with substantive solutions to the issues, and he's the one who has avoided debates which McCain has continually proposed. Furthermore, McCain wiped the floor with Obama at Saddleback, by showing substance compared to style, which was the only thing Obama had to offer. The people in San Francisco must be brain dead, and Pelosi'ls statement 'a leader God has blessed us with at this time' makes me nauseous. The reason McCain characterizes Obama as 'risky' is because he is!!! In these challenging times, we don't need to elect a community organizer to President of the United States.
