McCain and Obama on 60 Minutes
Tags: politics

Both candidates are fairly engaging and appealing; McCain especially shines when he's one-on-one with reporters. As a public speaker, however, it's like he's not only failing to talk to you, but also can't communicate with himself.

Obama, of course, has an active mind, and his thoughtfulness is no joke. He's very appealing to me because when he speaks, I can see the books he has read (and written), the debates he has had as a law professor, and his will to help others with his skills and leadership.

Both McCain and Obama take the call to service more seriously than 99% of the politicians out there. My hope is that the election be decided on the issues and which candidate can deliver sorely-needed change. I endorse Obama wholeheartedly.

Who do I identify with? Obama, partly because I'll never see the mountain that McCain owns and hikes in Sedona; I'm actually from the kind of Midwestern small town folks who raised Obama. The Democratic candidate has a professor's curiosity; McCain's experience has rigified his principles.

France's 2007 campaign for president between Segolene Royal and Nicolas Sarkozy was decided by whether "France is ready for love, or for work," with Sarkozy the latter. This US election is about whether we are ready for the past, or ready for the future.
