History in the Making



One of the most intriguing aspects of this election is the historical nature of it. Regardless of who wins this election America is in for a first; either the first black President or the first female Vice President. Not only is this historical, but it's impressive. As an American I am proud that Barack Obama has been nominated for President, and that Sarah Palin has earned her party's VEEP slot. No matter how you feel about either candidate, and I have gone on record as opposing Obama, this is a positive step forward for the USA.

For someone to not vote for Obama because he is black is the summit of stupidity and ignorance. If someone claims to be a Christian but dislikes Obama because of his skin color that person does not understand what it means to be a Christian. There are plenty reasons why I oppose the Obama-Biden ticket, and none of them have to do with melanin. Support a candidate based on the issues, the candidate's character, and his/her experience or lack thereof. Don't base your support or opposition on skin color.

Appreciate the fact that this is indeed an historical election for the USA; in more ways than one.
