On the 5th November, their was elections in America to decide who is going to become the next president of America. The two in the running were Barack Obama (Democrat) and John McCain (Republican). It was record breaking for the amount of voters because they did lots of campaignes and Obama’s campaigne was a crazy amount of money, possibly the most spent ever and the campaignes were attractive to the young people (as it was mainly younger people who voted for him) because he has a good personality and talked a lot of sense.
McCain i thought was a little bit to old to be a president and he had also had skin cancer in the past and could reoccur and his vice president was Sara Palin and she doesn’t have a presidential look and she was not ready if he died.
At the end it was Obama was the victor and I became very excited because i think he will become a better president than George Bush and i think the young people are happy for Obama too. Obama’s daughters are to become the youngest people to live in the white house since Amy Carter and used to like rollerblading around the white house who was nine, Obama’s daughters Malia who is ten and Sasha who is seven.
