I have suggested before that Barack Obama will be the first black American President and, despite my conservative politics, believe this will be, on balance, a good thing. He is the best of a weak field and John McCain is well past his best.
My support as a non-American for Obama would be unambiguous were it not for his support for a 'cut-and-run' Iraq policy. I think his assessment that the US position in Iraq is hopeless is not consistent with current developments. But John McCain lacks credibility on this same issue.
