Bangladesh: Making History

Mash from Bangladesh on why Obama becoming a nominee is a historic event.

1 comment

  • Sorry to nitpick but we really don’t know that Obama will be the nominee. Right now he is a presumptive nominee. Millions of voters have rejected him in the primaries, and many of them wow to continue for a variey of reasons. Many feel the process has been extremely flawed, entirely biased and gamed. The US media has sided with him early on and toally disrespected Hillary Clinton. With willing participation by several party bosses she was tarred, smeared and dissuaged despite getting more votes. The selection process itself was cleverly gamed and will not be complete until the party convenes in Denver in late August. IF proper democratic procedures are followed, many fear they won’t be, the legitimacy of the presumption will be challenged at Denver. There is much drama to be played out in this story.

    But to get back to the topic, if supporters of Sen. Clinton totally fail in getting their candidate on the ballot for November election, well, I believe it is really no big deal who wins the General Election. Millions of Americans share this view according to current polling.
