I debated whether I should endorse a presidential candidate in this blog. Much of the time, I hope to present information and let you form your own opinion. I think all of the candidates for US president have their plusses and minuses, and I could understand someone sensible supporting almost any of them, for one reason or another. I could also understand someone being opposed to any of them. But one has to decide. I am for Barack Obama.
“Let us be the generation that reshapes our economy to compete in the digital age. Let's set high standards for our schools and give them the resources they need to succeed. Let's recruit a new army of teachers, and give them better pay and more support in exchange for more accountability. Let's make college more affordable, and let's invest in scientific research, and let's lay down broadband lines through the heart of inner cities and rural towns all across America.”
