What do Polish friends think of Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton?

Just curious what Polish people think of America's current political process, especially Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton.

Do you like either one?

I'm a Polish-American and the candidate's policy concerning Poland will certainly be a factor in my decision and it seems that Obama will be more for Polish interests. To be honest, John McCain will have Poland's back the most, but let's be clear, Poland is not near the top of any of the candidate's priorities. Clinton, while she has actually been to Poland and knows first hand of the issues, has a weaker stance on foreign policy concerning Russia. So, as of now, I'm leaning towards Barack, although all 3 candidates have decent policies on Central and Eastern Europe.

This is my 100th post, by the way. Good for me.

Because female eyes are prettier, Foreigner. I sure don't want to stare at a Pole's bushy eyebrow all day, either, lol.

I think all three Candidates, Obama, Clinton and McCain, will do fine with Poland and the EU.

I think you might be wrong about that, because I really think that a person like McCain will most likely do even more damage than Bush did..

I'm with Bubba!

Catch phrases are what I do for a living - that is why I don't fall for Obama's stupid campaign slogan, lol.

I look at what people have done. I like Hillary, because she does things - rather than just occupy a seat in the Senate, like Obama.

If I had money I would have went for President so I would have someone to vote for. LOL

Personally, I'll decide when the party candidates are set.....at that point, I will compare the two candidates and choose whom I think is best for the job. As it stands right now, it looks as though it may be Obama and McCain.....I like them both, so I need to educate myself as to what each would bring to the office of the President.

Tweedledee and Tweedledum. No differences between two major parties. Consequently electioneering focuses on personalities and avoidance of serious problems. Political skills expressed by avoidance of commitments and noncontroversial issues. Big hoopla with "health insurance" is driven by a big business as a way of walking away from previously negotiated with unions (when they still existed) coverages. No way to get out of Iraq immediately and no funds to stay there for a long time, nightmare for whoever is going to be elected. Uncurious George for sure will be remembered, it will take a generation to undo the damage. But it was not his fault, it was a God who made him a president and it was a God who spoke through him. He was just going for a ride. Personal advice for Americans - take your money and run.

Her stint on SNL was good publicity. Also, the lobbying and votes don't mean anything, until she or Obama have the much needed votes. That is all this lobbying is for. She was stronger than him, before.

I have issues with a candidate saying, "change, change, change" but then not following it up with change WHAT!? You don't sway me with words, but deeds.

The fact that Rush Limbaugh has jumped into this, is just funny.

Do we have a stalemate? If Hillary takes Penn. no one can reach the finish line. This will force super deligates.

MY goodness, take a look at this:
cnn.com/2008/POLITICS/03/06/florida.michigan/index.html?iref=mpstoryview

Michigan lost its 156 votes, due to moving its Primaries up;
Florida lost its 210 votes, due to moving its Primaries up;

Who won both those states? Hillary! If they had awarded her those votes, she'd now be well over 200 votes ahead of Obama. That smacks of unfairness towards Hillary, and stinks to high hell!! She's insisting that they seat them at the Democratic Convention, and so far, the DNC is refusing to count them.

So tell me: who's cheating!? Hillary is the clear winner to me, and even during the Debates, she's the one who's always first asked questions over Obama, nearly each and every time, thus giving Obama time to think over the question.

The DNC isn't playing fair with Hillary at all, and seems to be trying to undermine her. Ergo, I want her in, because she has a mind of her own - not a puppet of the DNC.

There is a chance that they will rerun the Michigan Primary.

Neither democrat has enough experience.

Hillary does, if you've followed what she's done as First Lady, and then as Senator. She's one of the few First Ladies who's taken the President on, when it was her own husband.

They aren't going to redo the Primaries - the cost is in the Millions of dollars, unless the DNC pays for it. She already won it, so why redo it!? Stupid DNC.

Hilary is such a fraud. Yeah, she has great experience, like serving for many years on the board of Wal-Mart. I’m sure China is full heartedly behind her.

I am not sure the US is ready for either a woman or a black in office yet. I usually lean to the republican side of things but I don't like Mcain either.

I heard on the radio today that in a race McCain-Obama Obama would win 52:40%.
McCain-Hillary Hillary wins 45:40%.

I think all of them have the basis for better International relations than Bush has had and any improvement is good on the international level.

In american politics although they might have plans they want to enact domestic policy is something the senate has a hold of.

That might be true. I live in Detroit, the hardest hit area in the US as far as economy. I have never heard any ideas what so ever from Bush. The Senate might do more in that area but the president also has some influence in that area. Bush will go down as one of the worst presidents ever.
