Now the race is down to one Black guy, one woman and a war hero. It is strange that everyone I met and asked during Chinese New Year knew the names of the 3 candidates for US president but when I asked them who the MPs for their GRC were, they were able to name only half the GRC MPs. Unlike Americans, we don't really have to worry about who we vote for - as long as they come from a particular party, they must be good. Americans have a hard time figuring out who should be their next president, they go through numerous speeches, debates, town hall meetings, rallies just to figure out who should lead them costing the country plenty of time and money....and does not guarantee the best results (just look at the guy the elected the last time). If they save all that money and use it to pay the salary of the President, they might be able to hire someone like Jack Welch to run America like a big corporation.
I really don't understand why Americans are attracted to Obama. All he talks about is CHANGE - changing the political process, changing their healthcare system, etc etc.
Americans have a great system all they need is someone to tell them so and remove that urge for change. I guess the media there is not doing its job and the end result is this strong desire for change. They should have some media regulation or select their reporters and their output more carefully to give the citizens a greater sense of satisfaction for the system.
I got this bad feeling that this Obama feller is going to beat Clinton soon and McCain later to become the US President and put Americans through alot of troublesome change. Change they probably won't want if they have better newspapers.....
