As you all know, today is election day in the United States. I have already sent in my absentee ballot about a couple of weeks ago. If you are an American citizen, have you voted yet? If you’re not voting today, whether in person or via absentee ballot, why?
This is a big election for the United States, if not the world. There is going to be a “changing of the guard” in the White House. Either McCain or Obama. Either way it is going to be a first. The first woman Vice President or first African American president.
The majority, if not all, of my students at one point in time have asked me questions about the election and who I think will win. Italians are curious people and I mean that in a good way. My impression is that for the most part Italians would prefer to see Barak Obama as president. Several people have asked me directly almost making a subtle hint “Are you going to vote for Obama?”.
