If you lived in america and had the same standard of living you have now, but in america, who would you choose?

At least give us an idea, and why?

I live in uk, but would vote for neither, as i think america needs a nationalist leader not, someone like obama or mccain.

I'm leaning towards neither. I dont want either to be my president. I would much rather vote Ron Paul, however, where I live, we are not allowed to have 3rd party candidates on the ballot. Democracy in action. So instead of just not voting, I will mark my own line, and write his name it. With that, Im at least making a statement. One that I will not conform to the idea of lesser of two evils. That is not what democracy is supposed to be.

I do not really see him as a real nationlist, hugo chavez may be or putin, but bush i doubt. Ron paul or pat buchanan, would of had a message to rally the people this time, but i doubt enough people would listen to them.

But that sort of nationlism, is what i meant. Bush you remember ran first on the message of no foriegn stuff, which of course was a lie. But them two, are the sort you need to stop the nau, and make america true to themsleves again. The world hates you for good reason, and we will see what the winner does with that.

this country needs real change and im not talking about Oboma or McCain, both are more of the same crap we have had for decades.

I encourage others to look at the multitude of third party candidates. this country has been led down a bad path for decades int he hands of the dems and republicans .. both have accomplished there goals bigger more intrusive government.. even though they may have diffrent ways oif getting there thats the same goal for both.

Vote for a third party, any third party and get these polititions out of office and lets get some people in there with fresh views... Vote third party and independent.

I doubt it really matters one way or the other, since the person who sits in the Oval Office is nothing but a figurehead. The real power is not from those elected but the Bankers and Corporations that control the lobbyists, who then control the elected ones.

Whoever gets put in that office in January is in for one hell of a rough ride. I can't see either of the candidates really wanting the position looking at what is happening in the world with the financial crisis happening.

Seriously, which one wants the legacy of the devaluation of the dollar, the (possible) change in US currency to the Amero or to a cashless society, the legacy of the potential depression facing the world?

The right wing christians will say the next president is helping to bring us to the end times, others will say they are bringing on fascism/socialism, it's a lose lose situation no matter what.

Then there's also the possibility that the next pres will have the legacy of having the IMF take over America and deal with the shame as we become a 2nd world (or possibly 3rd word) country in the eyes of the world.

So let's see if I had to choose, who would I wish all that upon??? Easy choice - Obama

Will I vote for him, no.

I definitely prefer Obama over McCain... he seems much more clued up about international relations. To me he also comes across as being more trustworthy than McCain.

Obama's energy proposal are definetely more convicing than McCain's solution of just drilling and relying on oil!

I at one point years ago I thought McCain might be the right person. I now longer believe. When Palin was chosen as VP running mate that sealed the deal to not vote that ticket.

If Ron Paul was running I would vote for him.

It is looking like I will go with Obama as I certainly do not want the business as usual from McCain. I do not feel he can be trusted to change anything for the better for the average person.

If I was in the US I'd be screaming OBAMA!!!!!!!!!!!! At the top of my voice for the sake of the poor souls that will continue to suffer under Republican leadership.

Because I'm not an idiot. I voted for Gore in 2000, I knew Bush was gonna be bad. I voted for Kerry in 2004, I knew Bush was going to be worse.

I'm voting for Obama in 2008 because McCain will be the WORST.

I was leaning toward McCain due to the fact I think the Republicans needed a moderate leader and I have always liked him. The inclusion of Palin on the ticket though changed my mind. I simply can not vote a person like her into the second highest position in the country.

At this point I am most likely voting for Obama unless Palin steps down.

I saw McCain this morning during a rally in my area and found him to seem genuine, caring, knowledgeable and experienced. Obama is supposed to be here within the next two weeks and I plan to attend that rally, as well.

Currently, I'm still undecided, so I figure the more information I can get along with the chance to see them both in person will help solidify my decision, but right now I'm still non committed to either one.

This is the toughest election I've ever voted in.

i would vote for obama.

first of all i think that he´s much more competent than mc cain particularly in topics like health care or communication with countries like iran or north corea.

secondly i think that mc cain made a huge mistake by picking sarah palin as vice president. In my opinion she is not capable to make the right decisions in difficult moments. ( especially after the incident in Alaska )

To conclude i think that the united states really needs a change. and i think thats only possible with someone from the democratic camp , and it seems that obama is the right man in the right time.

I may be wrong but I think that if mc cain was elected president on november 4th, nothing would change at least for the next four years, and that would be catastrophic....

But this is just my opinion

The last 2 elections I voted FOR George Bush. This election I am voting AGAINST Obama.

Barack Obama has an Anti-Christ feel about him. His associations with Reverend Wright, former-terrorist Bill Ayers, Louis Farakhan, voter fraud proponents ACORN, and his affirmative action rise to power with no creditials, are just too scary for me.

I can't stand McCain, he is a traitor to the Republican Party. He was just a blink of an eye away from being chosen as John Kerry's VP just 4 years ago. You don't work with the enemy party, you try to destroy them. McCain has never learned that. My only consilation about McCain is that he is a one-term President. That will give the Republicans time to get a real conservative ready for 2012....Sarah Palin or Bobby Jindal should be ready by then.

I'm voting for McCain.

I wouldn't trust Obama to clean my toilets, let alone run the country.

McCain is a patriot and is committed to serving our country, upholding the constitution and restoring the citizens faith and respect in our government.

Obama is committed to nothing other than his own self-interest. The people that he has chosen to associate with say a lot about his charachter -or lack thereof.

For those of you that turned away from McCain because of Palin being on the ticket - would you be comfortable with Biden being President of the United States? I hate to even think about the sick reality of assassination but it IS reality and Biden could have to step in as Pres just as easily as Palin - maybe even more so!

I don't know which scares me more - Obama as President or Biden, but I DO know that it's a lose-lose ticket and one that should be avoided at all costs!

Obama isnt great... but he's better than McCain.

Have you seen those things about his temper? It's scary.

And Sarah Palin... she can get the lifetime achievement reward for showing it actually is possible to be dumber than bush.

Biden would be far superior to Palin in my opinion.

I understand a lot of people want religion mixed up in politics and the government but I do not. To each his own but do not guide the government based on a particular religion. Why don't the GOP just run a candidate that is a corporate CEO.
