The Super Tuesday is almost here. Going forward, the American election this year gets more exciting day by day. I think we are having very interesting and in the same time very tense primary election so far. These facts apply more on Democratic Party than Republican one.
The Democratic primary elections have been very tense and divisive this year. It is hard for democrats to choose between good and good.
Both candidates claim change and making history. One could be the first female president and other one could be the first African-American president. One plays her experience card and other his decisiveness. He inspires people and she brings up good memories. He has interesting background and she has wonderful last name. He talks about unity and she supports equal rights. He wants direct talk with Iran and she wants to end the war in Iraq on the first day. Kennedy family endorses him and, Oh well she is Bill Clinton’s wife.
All these qualities are divided between two people, and voters have to choose one. It is hard and irritating to see two strong candidates in the same party with same values have to go against each other and one gets the nomination and other be eliminated. However there could be a solution for this problem, which I would like to call an election tragedy.
The solution would be both candidates on one ticket. One ticket that covers all the promises and changes that America needs. We need a dream ticket for “America decide 08”. I think that dream ticket would be Clinton Obama 08.
Hillary Clinton as a former first lady and her 8 years experiences as US senator has ability to be a strong commander in chief. For 16 years, she has been living in Washington D.C. More than two decades she has been involved in American Politics. I am sure by now she is experience enough to play good role in dirty politic games and defeat her voters’ expectations. In the same time she can have Obama as her vice president and help him to bring his unique ideas of change on the table and make them reality.
Having good ideas and hope of change is not enough. Being able to give good and inspiring speeches of change and unity won’t make someone a good candidate for presidency. At least for us, Iranian backgrounds, it has been approved that a good speaker doesn’t necessary make him/her a good president. About 10 years ago Iranian people made so called history and elected Khatami as a president. Khatami was a good speaker. He had wonderful ideas of changes. He promised many Iranian dreams would come true under his presidency. But after 8 years he failed miserably. Khatami had inspiring personality. He had strong ability of getting attentions, however he was not the man of politics. He didn’t survived in Tehran’s complex politic games.
I see many similarities between Obama and Khatami. Obama is a wonderful man with wonderful ideas. Obama is a good example for state of Illinois to be proud of its senator. But Senator Obama is not, at least for now, the man who can survive Washington’s pressure. Obama needs support and help of someone like Clinton in order to be able to make differences. After 8 years of vice presidency I am sure he will be able to be even better president.
Clinton-Obama is not only a dream ticket for America; it will also guarantee 16 years of democrat presidency. 8 years of Clinton and 8 years of Obama.
Make sure go to vote on this coming Super Tuesday. Voting is not only practicing democracy, also it will bring your community voice and concern on the table. Joing the movement, make history, shake the world,let's toghter elect the first female president. GO AND VOTE.
