It's just a couple of days before the election now, so it's time to announce my choice for President of the United States. It's not that I think my choice will influence anyone, but as a teacher I've deliberately withheld my own opinions from my students. I am a firm Barack Obama supporter. It was evident early on that he shares most of my views and I caucused for him when Nevada held its state caucuses. If he wins, and at this point it seems like he will, he will be only the second candidate running for President that I've voted for, who won (and I've voted in every election since I was 18). He will also be the first President who is younger than I am, which is rather disconcerting.
