This is retrogressive and will not get him anywhere. He’d better get his act together and start telling people what he is really about instead of doing damage control after Obama’s big landing in Europe.

Why would we want another. Give me a break.

It’s a bizarre strategy that will have zero impact. The republicans are running scared and it’s pushing them into weird responses.

This is only possible by doing relatively ethical political campaigns, that I call it modern politics. Hence, McCain’s ad in Germany doesn’t seem good. Honestly speaking, Obama looks more experienced candidate irrespective of his age. His campaign has been well organised, planned and above all moves strategically and positively. Look a people around him! anyhow I wish you good luck for both of you!

Am I allowed to vote in this election? Did Germany join the United States? And what is all this “Obamania”-talk about anyway? I dont no a single person here who is actually getting crazy about Obama (besides some politicians and the media). Most people I know, would have preferred Clinton over all. But Obama is not Bush, thats a big point for him, and he seems more not-Bush, than McCain is not-Bush, which makes him Germanys (and Europes) favourite. Thats how simple most Germans think about that matter, I’d say…
