I’ve just been watching the speech by Barack Obama as he officially accepted the candidacy for the democratic party in the US.
The American presidential election is something that is very important for not just America, but the world as a whole. Based simply on the fact that Barack Obama wasn’t George Bush I would have been more than happy to see him go into power. Having seen that speech and combined that with everything else I have seen him say, I want him to be president for his policies, his attitude and his down to earth commitment for change.
America, please don’t screw up this time, this is the chance the rest of the world wants you to take.
