Can Barack Obama Capture the White House?
An analysis of Barack Obama and John McCain. It provides detail in to reasons Obama can win the White House and how he wins over McCain.
Since the junior Senator, Barack Obama has undoubtedly won the Democratic nomination for president; one asks himself? Is it really possible for him to win the presidency? Well, let’s take a look at the facts. First, let’s analyze his Republican opponent, John McCain. The first fact at face value is that we know very little of John McCain. Secondly, the main thing we do know is that he served in the military. Last, we know he echoes every single word our current president, Bush says. Is that surprising? I would say it is not. He is more like an older clone of Bush. There is only one issue that he spoke about. That issue was an attack on Obama in regard to a meeting that one of Obama’s aides purported to have met with Hamas. Otherwise, it’s “we must continue the war in Iraq”. The last fact that really hurts McCain is that the American people want change. That small element in itself may be the deciding factor in this presidential race. McCain is not talking about change. He represents the old thinkers and more of the same.
Now for just a second, let’s analyze his appeal to voters. He definitely has several votes from Republicans. Reason being is that there is no other candidate that can win the presidency from that party. The Republican Party had no choice. They selected McCain. I personally believe they should have chosen former mayor of New York, Rudy Guliana. But that’s another article. McCain has no appeal to Independents, minorities, women and even some of the people within his own party. Let’s face it; no one really can connect with McCain. His persona isn’t that of a president. He doesn’t even unify people.
In retrospect, Obama has grasped many Republicans, Democrats, and Independents. This brings me back to my ultimate question. Can Barack Obama capture the White House? I say, you darn right, he can!” We are at a historical moment in America. He even appeals to white men. He will win a percentage of Republicans. I believe that they will crossover and vote for Obama. This man is a unifier; he’s intelligent, shrewd and popular with the American people. Obama represents all color lines. He suffered brutal attacks from Hillary Clinton during his vie for the Democratic nomination. Each time, he was able to get back on his feet. In addition, many of Hillary’s main delegates, supporters and the like came out of nowhere to endorse Obama. Now that was definitely historical! Several historical events have been set. It is time for America to set a main historical event. We will have our first president of African -American decent. He is Democratic nominee, Barack Obama. In answering my question, Obama will win the presidency!
