Not one answer other than he is not McCain. From either side.
Think long and hard about what you are doing if you cannot answer the question. What makes the Guy you are going to vote for "better" than any one else? If you cannot give a definitive answer to that question, why would you vote for that person?
Haven't personally met him but by all accounts obama's a bright and serious person. He seems to genuinely care for others and will do battle with repugs. Some of his people look worthwhile also.
I don't support him because of democratic party affiliation but more that he isn't connected to the oppressive repug machine.
Don't really pay attention to campaign promises since few politicians follow through with them. Consider small gov't and fiscal responsibility promises from eight years ago. Most recent lobbyist count in d.c. was three times that of 2000.
