First of all I am not a citizen of the United States, therefore I have no way to vote in the coming US federal elections.

Like what the political commentators say on TV this election in the US is the most exciting in recent history. Indeed never in anyone’s dream that now, in 2008 a woman or an African-American can become president or vice-president of the world’s most powerful company.

I am glad that this presidential election has come to this point. At long last, the US can now have a woman or a black president.

Personally, I am for Hillary Clinton. While I am a man, I believe that its about time that a woman take control of government. I think her policies are for the good of America.

The policy that I like the most is her policy on healthcare. Having seen the documentary “Sicko,” her universal healthcare plan is long overdue. Its hard to believe that in the world’s richest nation, people go bankrupt for not being able to afford medical treatment.

I think that if the health policy goes well it will create ripples on how healthcare is done in other parts of the world.

Dr. Sanjay Gupta of CNN compares the healthcare plans of Clinton and Obama. Seems that Obama’s plan does not intend to cover all Americans. See for yourself:
