We can predict but only the citizens of the United Sates of America can tell who. If elected, Barack Obama will be the first African American president of the US.
Obama is a junior US Senator from Illinois. He is the presidential nominee of Democratic Party in the 2008 presidential election.
Barack Obama was born in Honolulu, Hawaii. Thus, if destiny favor Obama, he will be the first president who was born outside the continental United States.
Barack Obama’s notable political position is his early opposition to the policies of President George W. Bush on Iraq. When President Bush and Congress authorized the Iraq war in October 2002, Obama spoke out against the war.
Another notable political stand of Obama is on nuclear policies of the US. If elected, he said that he would enact budget cuts in the range of tens of billions of dollars, stop investing in “unproven” missile defense systems, not “weaponize” space, “slow development of Future Combat Systems,” and work towards eliminating all nuclear weapons.
The world will be watching the US on November 4, 2008 – the date of 2008 presidential election. Will it be Obama?
Let’s wait and see.
But whoever gets elected, he will surely play a pivotal role in world affairs.
