McCain and the Republicans like to emphasize Obama’s lack of experience, but they don’t mention that George W. Bush had even less experience when he was elected. Jimmy Carter also had very little experience when he was elected. You could even say George Washington had no government experience before he became president.
Being able to inspire & motivate people is a huge advantage. The fact that Obama is well liked overseas will be a huge boost to our international relations.
We need to repair our reputation in the world, which Bush damaged so badly. We can’t stand alone; we need the rest of the world’s cooperation. A president who will bully & threaten other world leaders and lose his temper will make the rest of the world less willing to cooperate with us. A likable & charismatic leader with good negotiating skills will raise the world’s opinion of us and strengthen our alliances.
