Anyway, First off I would like to let you know my opinions on the two Vice Presidential Candidates of Senator McCain and Senator Obama. For Senator Obama, Joe Biden is a very nice choice. He is a safe pick with lots of experience and is familiar with the way Washington works. That however is what some people view as his downfall. They believe he is a Washington insider, the very thing that Obama was so against. Although, this might be helpful for Senator Biden to have these connections as Obama's right hand man, For John McCain, Sarah Palin was a very unexpected pick. However, She brings a youthful energy to the Republicans that Senator Obama brings to the Democrats. Some people point to her youth and inexperience as her ultimate downfall. However, I would like to point out that Governor Palin, not only has approximately the same political experience as Barack Obama, Also her experience comes in the Executive Branch. This is somewhat underestimated, because executive experience is very very important in the jobs of the President and the Vice President.
Now for the presidential debates! Before viewing the first debate, I personally decided that I would view the debates from a bipartisan viewpoint. After watching the debates I thought that Barack Obama is a very intelligent person. I mean he was a Harvard Graduate! However, I felt that McCain showed that he is also intelligent and has more true experience and seems like he is not in need of on the job training as President. I am looking forward to more debates and am eager to view not only the presidential debates, but the Vice Presidential debates as well. All in all from this debate I felt like John McCain would be the better president.
