When i heard the news of Billary giving up her election campaign my heart did beat an extra beat or two. The era of the political dynasties in the U.S seems to be over!!! Obama has won the democratic nomination and kudos to him for that!!
It is about time a person of color became the president of the united states. The presidency has been an “old boys club” for too long there & Mrs Clinton in my opinion would have just served to be another mouthpiece for the Clinton family in the White House. I would say i am biased in my opinion of her but any woman who stands by her man’s total misuse of power and position ala Lewinsky just because he is the president is worthy of loathing to me.
The Obama campaign focused on “Change” for its theme and i daresay it is bloody time to bring about change in how America views the world and engages with it!!
Along the way however i hope Mr Obama has come to realize that there will be several forces in American society pitted against his campaign to bring about wholesale change. Still if there is any hope for the world at large America has to play a role now to soothe tensions and suppress them rather than go about acting as the world’s policeman.
