Barak Offers The World Hope

Which presidential candidate would send a signal to the rest of the world that America will change its ways and can still be the beacon of truth, hope, and justice that it once was? New York Times columnist Richard Cohen thinks Barak Obama is that candidate:
Obama...has been most forthright in sketching a globalized community — “the security of the American people is inextricably linked to the security of all people” — and pushing hope over fear. I see nobody else who would represent such a
Kennedy-like restorative charge at a time when America often seems out of sync
with the world.
I think he is right, at least when considering only those candidates who have a chance to win. As I have heard said about Hillary, she "talks like a dove and votes like a hawk." The Republicans are all busy being Republicans, i.e., they would pretty much continue down the destructive path charted by Bush junior. I'm not an Obama supporter, but he does offer some hope for a better America to the world community.
