By the time most of you read this, Barack Obama will be elected as the next President of the United States. Itâ€™s not because I want him to win the election or that I am even voting for him because I am not.Â Itâ€™s because I am a realist and quite frankly, his campaign was managed and executed flawlessly.
McCain, on the other hand, was and is an embarrassment to Republican politics.Â It was his honor, courage and commitment that cost him the election.Â I am surprised that he lasted in Washington this long. That, coupled with Obamaâ€™s charm, personality, optimism, charisma and connection with the American people is the reason why â€œthe Prophetâ€ is now occupying the White House and will undoubtedly save the world.
So since McCain didnâ€™t want to get off his high horse and play â€œdirty politicsâ€ like the rest of them, I will take this opportunity to highlight Obama and chronicle his shady past, voting record and present relationships.Â Not that it even matters any more, but what else am I going to write about for the next four years.

And, how about his voting record. I looked it up and was surprised to see that he doesnâ€™t really have one. Over 300 bills have crossed his desk since 2005 and he only voted in about 50 percent of them. However, here are some key votes that he did vote on:
- Voted against extending the Bush tax cuts on capital gains and dividends
- Voted against permanently repealing the Death Tax. (Called the cuts a â€œParis Hiltonâ€ tax break for â€œbillionaire heirs and heiressesâ€)
- Voted against CAFTA
- Voted YES on raising the minimum wage to $7.25 rather than $6.25.
- Opposed the lifting of $0.54 per gallon tariff on cheaper Brazillian ethanol. Said, â€œethanol imports are neither necessary nor a practical response to current gasoline prices.â€
- Voted against the bankruptcy abuse bill.
- Opposes privatizing Social Security
- Voted against drilling in ANWR.
- Voted against confirmation of Sam Alito and John Roberts to the Supreme Court.
- Voted against extending the Partiot Actâ€™s wiretap provision.
- Opposed any bans on partial birth abortions.
