Two Great Candidates

Call me an optimist but I think we have two very good candidates running for President. Both McCain and Obama are very good leaders and will bring great change in Washington. I think no matter who wins; we will all be in a better place 4 years from now. Both are running a platform for reform or change. They may have different views on how to get there, but both believe on making America a better place. What does everyone else think?

Boy, did you set yourself up for that one. There's no question that this next presidency is going to be anything BUT a cakewalk. Despite who is chosen, the next four years will likely see:

* Some action with Iran
* Some action with Russia
* Possibly some action with North Korea
* Reponse from any of the above in the oil markets in higher prices, meaning a beating on the economy
* Higher oil prices anyway as oil consumption from India increases as they release their new ultra-affordable mini-car to the masses who can now afford them thanks for U.S. offshoring of jobs

If you add to that Obama's socialist platforms and overall bad ideas for the economy I cannot see the U.S. in a better place. So my answer to your question would have to be no.

I think the first four scenarios are avoidable ones by either candidate when they are in office. The fifth scenario is one that will be a problem and could cause oil to go higher. I think both candidates can tackle this issue very early on in their time in office and produce a positive outcome for all of us.

keep in mind

whichever person gets elected

they have the aftermath of 8 years of bush to deal with

don't expect miracles from day 1....

There's a lot to clean up before rebuilding can begin

I do not think I am expecting miracles from day one, but both candidates are poised to make a difference in the first year of their term. While it does seem we are facing many problems, I do not buy into the doom and gloom being shelled out in the MSM. I believe that these problems can be fixed and for once we have two candidates that can fix them.
