Okay, it’s down to the wire. Obama has a comfortable lead in some states, a small one in others, and is behind in a few too.
The rest of the world knows where they think the vote should go (and not surprisingly, Canadians have voted more than any other country on this site). But maybe that kind of thing will cause a rush of contrarians south of the border who’ll vote McCain out of spite. How the nation can be anywhere close to voting for another Republican administration is outside of my boggling abilities, but since I’m unable to vote, I stand on the side holding my breath like millions of other people.
First, I hope that everyone who can vote, votes. The US has a very low voter turnout, and I hope that’s not the case this time. Even if I disagree with the outcome, it is their democratic right to choose the leader that they want for their country. But, please please please Obama supporters, don’t assume it’s in the bag and therefore you don’t have to cast a vote to achieve the outcome you want. Every single vote matters.
