How weird is that?!
I do not even care about politics in my own country (despite having studied it for two years, and having a best friend who CARES DEEPLY about all that
One of my lecturers had a theory about how we're all too complacent because nothing ever goes wrong so we've have it too easy blah blah. Maybe so but we're quick enough to bitch about it.
Anyway, I just think it's cool that there could be a non White Male president. Which is not to say that they'd automatically do a better job because of that. But maybe they would. Maybe they'd have more incentive, or a different perspective, or maybe they'd just be the best man - or woman - for the job.
I hope no-one expects me to maintain this high level of interest in the political affairs of any country. Finding the prospect of a black/woman president mildly appealing was about the extent of my excitement.
