I just hope the country can become more unified, regardless of which one becomes the next president. There are some critical issues facing the next administration, and partisanship is going to cripple any progress.

Wow! For the most part these comments were fairly positive. Maybe there is a chance that our country can come together and begin erasing all the divisiveness that's done nothing but pull *us all* down. Despite the current financial crisis, maybe in the midst of all this adversity we can find a common denominator in love for our country above all else. Maybe a new day IS dawning. I'm hopeful we can finally rise above the partisan politics with the common goal of restoring our country to its former greatness. I'll probably cry a few tears of happiness and relief then go out and buy a new American flag (to replace my tattered old flag) and hang it proudly once again. I'll also pray that John McCain will accept the verdict of the American people graciously.

Even Bush, the most divisive president since Lincoln, had a chance after 9/11 to unite the country and he failed. Surely the next president will have at least 1 chance to bring people together, I just hope he's up to the task.
As for your bold statement that the US as I know it will not exist in 50 years, I don't disagree. In fact, I think you could make that statement at any point in the country's history or future, and it would be a true statement.

What a classy post! Thank you for joining our forum.

It's refreshing to see there are people out there with a healthy and sane approach to an election. I support Obama, myself--and I definitely share your attitude if McCain wins.
