Tuesday, November 4th 2008, the Citizens of the United States of America will go to their Polls and Vote for their 44th President. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Presiden...the_United_States
Who do you think should be the American President to be dubbed "the most powerful person on earth"? Why?

Not sure about Singapore Pool, but I never heard of Singapore "Pools" doing for US elections. I'm sure someone out there is willing to accept bets for this event.
Prize: How about if the candidate I vote for wins, I treat like voters to beers at Bliss at Punggol Park? Razz

Republican has an uphill task in this election. McCain campaign of a "true Amercian hero" probably will work in the previous election but American will still be buy by such concept.

Thus, who ever can win the Democrat's nomination race will most likely be the next president unless he/she screwed up big time in the run up. Regardless whether Clinton or Obama wins, its gona be a history making election with either the 1st female or black president.

Cheers
JC

seriously i'd go for the real iconic americans e.g. colonel sanders or ronald mcdonald...would have gone for burger king or taco bell but these are not persons. but i'd rather that the next president not be someone who is 'bushy' and goes to war just to find weapons of mass distraction.

Yup, you are right... distraction from the US economy, sub-prime, Enron, failing education and health care systems!

In that case, I rather go for Paris Hilton (Carl's Junior). Smile

Democrats infighting and indecisiveness are wasting lots of time and ground work. Republicans are more decisive and McCain is already doing his rounds. The two Democrats are busy doing each other in. Sly

This is an interesting thread, given that I don't think anyone else here is American.
It's interesting to see everyone's thoughts.

But, I wonder, how is it that you guys are making up your minds as to who is your favorite? Has anyone really been keeping up with the politicians policies and promises?

Not judging, but just asking how people judge another nations candidates and political figures.

I'd be interested to know why you like certain candidates over others.

McCain hasn't gotten nearly as much press because there is no drama surrounding his probable nomination as the Republican presidential nominee.
Is that the reason for his lack of numbers here, or is it that he's Republican, and shares that in common with Bush?

McCain has always been critical against Bush, and their differences in opinion and policies are fairly well known in the U.S. as well as McCain's ability to cross party politics to get things done. So, I think he's a pretty strong candidate, despite his party affiliation.

Having said that, Democrats of course have an easier chance by virtue of their party. Will this long drawn out battle hurt their golden opportunity to capture both the Senate and White House?

Either way it will be a historic election in the U.S. as well as a turning point. It will be very interesting.

agree that it is definitely a turning point for the US of sorts - the economic and perhaps even military hegemony is slowly shifting towards this side of the globe. as to how SK forumers base their analysis, I dunno. i suspect most are doing this just for fun, perhaps wtih some banality, superficiality etc . what and who are we after all - a little red dot or like some americans would put it, only a small province in southern china. :P

Its no mean task to keep tag of all the various direction and vision all these candidates have. Lots of bends, curve and even u turn at times. Even American themselves are not really following 100% needless to say us. I guess most will keep up the pace when its near the finally voting.

For me, I just read some news, watch some reports and hear some comments. Its fun in the sense cos we'll nvr get such election in SG. imho, There's no need to be up tight over tis, unless there is plan to migrate to the States within the next 4 yrs.

Btw, anyone wanna start the Taiwan election thread? :P

Cheers
JC

Yes, Lateone! I thought those exact thoughts before I was posted to Singapore. I asked another question tho... "they still swing from treehouse to treehouse, using those vines?" :P I was pleasantly surpised when I came and did my recon in May 1990! What was said was not true. EDB was very helpful! Especially the friendly female EDB officer that helped me in LA. No regrets coming to Singapore. Altho I do miss America's beautiful spacious skies, amber waves of grain, purple mountain majesties, above the fruited plain! From sea to shining sea!
