Obama or McCain?

Who are you hoping will win the November 2008 Elections in the US, Obama or McCain? At first, I thought that a lot of Filipinos will root for Obama, because he seems to be on the side of the middle class. McCain, on the other hand, with his houses and high net worth, seems to be identified with “the rich people.”

That’s why I was surprised when I saw in the papers that according to a non-commissioned SWS survey, 3 out of 4 Filipinos don’t care who wins the coming US Elections.

Whether that comes from indifference towards international politics, a case of “I’m in the Philippines, okay”, or what may be the beginning of a shift in the Pinoy’s psyche regarding poverty and the search for some hero to uplift us from our situation will become more evident in the coming years.

The year 2010 is coming around the corner (somewhat), and let’s see how politics and election fever affect the people then.


  1. Gwapito supports McCain, but Obama Bin Ladin is winning.
