Election 2008

Well, Obama is the next president.
 
I guess it’s a "big deal" since he’s black, but that honestly had no effect on my vote.  I think my generation and younger don’t really look at skin color first.  It’s the baby boomers that keep it alive by always pointing out race-related things.
 
I voted for Barr, the Libertarian guy.  He ended up getting only .6% of the popular vote nationwide.  I strongly believe that if more people knew about the other candidates, that more people would vote for them.  Hopefully the Internet helps to spread information about canddiates who could otherwise not afford the advertising, and we see a change in the 2012 election.
