    You can't really be worst until you do worse than others... the best we can say is average, until he does worse or better!

    I understand the Obama hype.

    I think it's great that he's center-left like me, and he has hoards of clueless followers (nothing wrong with that, at least they are getting engaged in politics when they otherwise wouldn't) who probably don't even know what "center-left" means.

    It is not a problem when 'hoards of clueless voters' get involved in politics? I would prefer that they, 'otherwise wouldn't.'
    A criticism that can be brought against everything ought not to be brought against anything.

    As long as they're on my team, it's fine.

    Maybe you're right but I'm just making the point that I feel the hype is based on nothing but promises and charm. I hope he does good for the country but I'm not one to anticipate it and I feel that some are foolish in their blind obsession.

    All that to say, lol messiah?

    Unfortunately, the western world is stuck with 'democracy'... Fuck it all! Strong leaders and huge armies, plz!

    Mightier than the tread of marching armies is the power of an idea whose time has come

    I think the end of the curve on both sides is pretty nuts... but that's polarised politics for you.

    I have more hope in Obama than the presidents I have lived through though. However, I make no real judgments now, because he still needs to prove himself. My mindset is to only decide what I need to decide at the time - if I would/could vote, then he would be my better choice, given the options.

    If my "decision" ends up being right... well, that remains to be seen (and estimated - who knows what would of happened if McCain won instead). (Not American, so clearly didn't have a choice )

    I think that would all depend on your religion. The second coming of Jesus specifically would be a great predictor of an oncoming apocalypse, while the actual word "messiah" means something different in other religions. Jesus is referred to as the Messiah in Islam, but he wasn't considered a literal "son of God." Judaism is still waiting for the first messiah, etc.

    I think it'll be hilarious when either candidate wins and America just goes back to normal, as if it were any other president we've had in the past.
