I've read articles about Obama's and Clinton's positions on Indian issues. I haven't seen any major differences between them. I think other factors are more significant. Who can get elected? Who can lead? Who can change the system?
In Newspaper Rock, I've mainly covered the candidates' popular appeal. Because that's the primary "pop culture" aspect of the presidential race. From what I've seen, Indians are flocking more to Obama than they are to Clinton. My coverage reflects that.
In that respect, Indians are like Americans everywhere. They sense Obama is a winner and they want to back a winner. They're tired of George W. Bush and his policies of scorn and neglect. They don't want four more years of the same.
I'd be happy to vote for Obama or Clinton over McCain. Either one would make a much better president. But the voters have given Obama the edge, and the polls confirm it. Obama is the best candidate we have to defeat McCain in November.
