I am not unbiased. I already hate Barack Obama. I hate John McCain a little less. I am going to vote for neither person however. I will either vote for a 3rd party candidate (I like Bob Barr's economic policy ideas) or I will use my democratic right to abstain from voting for president.
I don't like what McCain stands for. He claims to be a maverick, separating himself from typical Republicans. I don't know if that means he will sell out some of the social ideals to which I subscribe to appease the liberal half or just try to differ on a few policies that the Bush administration has enacted.
I disagree almost fully with all of Obama's platforms. Besides the fact that he chose Biden as his running mate, a man who can't even answer honest questions without becoming upset, as seen in this interview with Orlando reporter Barbara West. I like the fact that a reporter is finally asking the candidates honest questions.
The problem with trying to ask legitimate questions (which would never happen during a debate, a time when the voters need to see the true side of candidates) is that people think it is a personal attack on them. They are incapable of separating themselves from the ideals or beliefs or policies they stand behind. They view everything as an ad hominem line of questioning.
That's why Republicans view all questions about McCain's service as unpatriotic. It's why most questions about Barack Obama's leadership capabilities are called racist. Candidates need to be asked real questions, and start giving real answers, so that Americans know how they will act during a situation, not in the office when everything is handled for them by aides.
