In America, the sentiment is slightly different. Al Gore lose to Bush by margin. America goes downhill ever since. Now, the world is suffered from the possible recession in America.
This year 2008, I hope the American would vote wisely. In Democrat, if they choose Obama who has little experience in managing a nation and foreign policy, Republican is going to win again. War continues in Iraq and the financial crisis is going to explode to where we were in 1929.
I really hope the American should vote for Hillary Clinton. The reasons are so obvious. She has an experienced team and proven record who has managed US successfully - low unemployment rate, better world peace, high US federal reserve and many more.
If US choose wrong, the US power may be weakened. Another superpower will emerge to challenge them in no time.
