Lispian Random meanderings on whatever catches my fancy

Obamamania

Well, well. Seems the Democrats have their hopeful for the upcoming US elections.

The mania sweeping the US – and parts of the world — is rather akin to what my folks told me it was like with Kennedy and Trudeau in the 60s. And he is a very good orator, something that’s been sorely lacking in US politics for quite a while.

What I’m most looking for is a nice, civil election for a change. I can’t see either McCain nor Obama getting nasty. In fact, from what I’ve seen, they both seem extremely passionate so it should be an election of ideas. Also from what I’ve read, it seems they both have similar concerns. And McCain has already asked for 10 debates/town halls with Obama. I think that’s a great idea.

So here’s to hoping for a civilized election in the US based on passionate and reasoned debate on ideas and ideals. If the US has such an election, it’ll not only be good for the US but for the rest of the world. Here’s to hope and may the best man win.
