America ina Wenyewe!

After Obama 1&2 I have picked few lessons. In 2008 I was sucked into American politics just as many blacks did across the globe.

He has tried his best, he has achieved what he has achieved and no doubt he has made history. I did not stay awake to watch the recent presidential debate; I did not have any reason to. I haven't had time to watch the whole repeat of the debate either but I have seen few clips here and there. So I told a friend, who sought my opinion that, my opinion about the American presidential campaign does not really count but I often have a feeling that America lost in the nominations; both Democrats and Republicans seemed to have better candidates to front as flag bearers than the ones they did; but they did not front them. I believe they have their reasons why they did so. The elections are coming and let them elect their president. Whichever way it goes; I am happy to remember that "AMERICA INA WENYEWE!
