Since I have been able to vote I have never voted for a Democrat for President. However, this year is different. I am voting for Barack Obama believing that he is far superior to John McCain. Senator Obama is a brilliant man who has run a stellar campaign. If he runs the country as well as his campaign the country will be in much better shape in four years. John McCain has proven an erratic candidate who should not be carrying around the nuclear code. He is not capable of correcting the economy, pronouncing just a few weeks ago that the economy was fundamentally sound. Moreover, by choosing a person who is totally unqualified to assume the presidency as his running mate, McCain has shown his true colors. It's not "country first", it's "John McCain first". I urge all readers to vote for Barack Obama.
