Thread Name: BS: Election fraud
Subject: RE: BS: Election fraud
Well, there's no doubt that one reason for wanting Obama to win is that it'd feel much more comfortable to live in a world where the USA had turned the corner on a past in which it was inconceivable that a black candidate could be elected president, and had moved into a future where the suggestion that black people weren't capable of the highest office wasn't just seen as racist, it was recognised as just bloody stupid.

Fortunately Obama also appears to be incomparably the better candidate. The candidates have just gone through the longest job interview in the world. He's head and shoulders ahead of McCain. And the clincher is the thought of Sarah Palin a single heartbeat away from the White House.
