Politics: one and only post

Let me start this by saying, I voted McCain. Just like every other white person out there is saying, it wasn't a race issue for me, I just don't trust Obama. Perhaps more specifically, I don't trust the people he associates with (or marries!).

However, after watching all the coverage today, I have to say, I'm so excited to be living in a time when a black man (well, halfway) can be voted as president of these great United States. I'm a huge fan of equality for blacks, women, gays, whatever and the fact that we've made it this far in a relatively short period of time is quite astounding and it definately says something for the nature of people as a whole. While I don't agree with the choice for president, I'm ready to go on this 4 year journey with him and learn what he has to teach us. History has taught us that when one sector of a nation grows stronger, they all grow stronger and I hope we have the opportunity to find this out.

3 equal yet different opinions:

I agree - partially. I also voted for McCain, and not for any racial reasons. Liberals scare me, quite simply. But I'm not feeling the excitement. I'm more in a wait-to-see-when-he-messes-up sort of stance. I just don't see how these promises can be kept.
