    Default Obama's speech

    Just listening to Obama's speech on BBC 24 and heck - even stopped to finish listening to it before going to feed squirrels - the guy is excellent speaker, no fake smiles like Brown, heck, I want to be American to be able to vote for hm.

    I hope that she-witch Clinton will lose miserably

    Has he come out with a single policy on anything yet?

    Tony Blair was a good speaker and had the electorate eating out of his hand too, remember.

    Well, exactly.

    Obama speaks as though someone has studied the old JFK speaches and copied them.

    Not a single policy, not a single word about how he is going to achieve all of these 'motherhood statements' he come out with

    blaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah

    People were just too sick of Tories. Pity as I think John Major is actually a very decent person, unlike Blair, Brown and the whole lot of those Nu Liebor.

    Obama is different in that he is not integral part of the establishment, unlike Clinton, and his support base is actually the people rather than big donors - in this respect what he has achieved is remarkable.

    I like McCain actually - and if he was against Clinton then I think he'd win for sure, but if he is against Obama he will lose.

    He looks genuine to me. If he believes in the things that JFK believed then I think it's a good thing. When I look at Brown making up his smile I can see he is a liar of the highest order.

    Clinton is a cynical manipulative person whose methods are detestable - Obama in this case is an excellent choice, it is harder when he is against McCain though.

    Agree for once with AtW. I think Clinton even before this race would have struggled with the independents if up against McCain, who'll swing this election one way or another. I think the way she's campaigned has just served to alienate her to even more independents, and also put off a core of democratic voters in the US who might have voted for her before.

    The more I see of her, the more I understand the hatred republicans hold for her. Something about her just completely winds me up the wrong way.

    I reckon Will Smith will be the first black president of America, so this Obama chap doesn't stand a chance.

    He has no policies! He's a soundbite politician with no experience, that's the problem.

    McCain would probably beat Clinton but lose to Obama because the Americans don't know how to counter the approach of having nothing to say and being an unconventional but popular candidate.
