This has been one heck of an election season and I am glad that it's finally coming to an end tomorrow. I am hoping for an Obama victory even though I didn't think it was possible when I first started following the campaign two years ago. Either way, I am okay with the result. I think that, fortunately, John McCain will go back to being the independent-minded guy that he was prior to this election and if that is true, we will all be just fine. The more I think about this, the more I think that this will be the case especially if his promise to remain in office for one term remains true. He won't have to worry about pleasing the Republican base for re-election in this scenario. Don't forget, it was widely reported that he once considered becoming a Democrat. So while I have my preference, I think we as people will be in good hands either way.
It's disappointing that so many people have let emotion overcome them so much during this election. Barack Obama is a good man and while he may be young, he has intelligence and promise. John MCCain is a war hero and I am confident that he will make what he feels is the best decision for this country. The election of either man will not spell the end for the country as we know it. Obama will turn this country to Socialism nor will he turn this into a terrorist state. McCain will not cause the economy to sink further into recession and will not bankrupt the country going to war.
I wish the best of luck to all tomorrow and hope that regardless of the outcome, the best person is elected.
