Go Barack Go!

In a little over an hour, history will be made (well about an hour according to the time on my laptop; I still haven’t been able to get wordpress to show the correct time.)

In the United States, either an African American will take the reins of government, or a woman will become second in command.

Now, I have watched the American election with a lot of interest, not so much because of the impending changes its about to bring, but more because the events and characters in it have been more entertaining than the latest adventures of Britney and Kevin.

But despite all of the rhetoric and name calling, I have to admit that (like most of the world) I want to see Barack Obama become president. For me, that’s a big change, considering that my blood runs the deep blue of Alberta conservatism.

But, the U.S. really hasn’t prospered all that much under “Dubya” and the Republicans, so it really does seem like its time for someone new–and I really can’t see that doddering old fool McCain taking power and then probably just as quickly turning it over to power hungry (and apparently dumber than Dubya) Sarah Palin.

Let’s face it, not knowing who the PM of Canada is and thinking a porn video is actually an expose of you doesn’t make me want you running the most powerful country in the world.

But, there is still an hour left before we find out who takes over the White House and, as the 2004 elections taught us, anything can happen in the good ol’ U.S. of A.

This time around though, lets hope the good guys will triumph and that the Americans will look at the remains of their country and vote for change. After all, what did they gain over the last 8 years?

Go Barack Go!
