The candidates' resumes are there and the disparity is like day and night! The primaries have come and gone and America watched one of the candidate grow into a formidable presidential candidate while the other diminished into a ranting rage-filled gnome who has been variously described as impulsive, erratic, irrational, angry, inarticulate and too old for the job! The campaign so far has been unfolding before the eyes of every American and the candidate with the steady hand is very obvious! We have witnessed two debates with one scheduled for tomorrow October 15th, 2008 and the verdict is that one candidate continually thumped the other! Over-all one candidate has a coherent plan to engage the gear of this country forward while the other is still whining and going round and round rambling about an over forty year old alleged war-exploits as if he was the only one who ever fought for this country? Many Americans living today were not even born then and since this his war effort has been acknowledged, it is about time he pivoted therefrom and tell Americans how he plans to solve the myriad of problems facing us today, both here at home and abroad. Also while in that voting booth on November 14, 2008 ask yourself were you an employer who will you hire for the top job? Remember that one of the candidate is an A+ student while the other was a struggling C- student.
However, should America get it right this time and vote with their heads, Icheoku has no doubt that come November 5th, 2008; America and the whole world will be waiting excitedly for the January 14th, 2009 swearing in of the first real candidate of change ever! The whole world will wake up on the morning on November 5th, 2008 to a Senator Barack Obama's America's president in the waiting new status! If only Americans will be bigger than self and just do right by and with their votes! America should exploit this opportunity to impress itself indelibly in the minds of the peoples of the world as a very serious minded people who have since buried their despicable racist past. It is the only reasonable thing to do and nothing short of that will suffice. Senator Barack Obama's presidential election victory will convince the naysayers that America has since moved on from its racist past and that for once we got it right since 2000 George Bush tragedy. Every indicator points at one conclusion and anything short of that conclusion, will not paint us in good light of both history and the world. Icheoku says, America do your part, vote smart, vote with your head!
In this election a lot of things are at stake and it should not be decided merely on passion, it should be decided based on an objective test of what is the true way forward from the George Bush disastrous eight years. Senator John McCain can try all that he may to run away from his shadow George Bush, but it is impossible for one to divorce himself from his shadow and John McCain is a true reflection of George Bush. With Senator John McCain America will get more of the same as the past George Bush eight years. Who wants to relive that nightmare? Not Icheoku and we believe you share our sentiments! At the least, there is a common denominator between Senator John McCain and George Bush - both are Republicans and that is simply enough reason to reject John McCain's candidacy. The Republican Party has sunk this country into the lowest abyss in recorded history this past eight years and it is about time America tell them enough! America, we have had enough of this unruly elephant in a china shop before they take the whole mankind with them into the sink-hole of infamy!
