Ever since Sen Obama has become the nominee of our party and John McCain of his I couldn't help but laugh out loud about how polar opposite these two men are.
On one side you have a 6'2, 47 year old, black seasoned politician from Chicago. On on the other side you have a 72 year old, white 3 term U.S Senator, with millions of dollars.
The race to me is starting to resemble the final season of the West Wing, when it was the young Latino star of the Democratic party versus the old establishment candidate of the GOP.
As all of us political observers know we have the first debate coming up this Friday in Oxford, MS between the two candidates about foreign policy, the debate will be 90 minutes and hosted by PBS News Hour host Jim Lehrer.
I think Sen McCain's clear misunderstanding of not only the economy but foreign policy will be put on display for all of America to see, he will not have any teleprompters around to struggle to read from and he won't have Joe Lieberman next to him to whisper in his ear the difference between a Shia and a Sunni.
I know some people are expecting Sen Obama to not do too well in the debates because his answers sometime tend to be long winded, but I am fully expecting him to come out hard against John McCain and make him look like the out of touch, divorced from reality U.S Senator that he is.
When people see the stark contrast between Barack Obama and John McCain, from the clear age difference (which is probably not fair) and grasp of the issues many will make up their minds right then and there.
