An unpredictable
presidential race

Ron Fournier, Associated Press bureau chief in Washington, D.C., had interesting comments to make about our country's current presidential race. He spoke Friday during the Arkansas Press Association's (APA) annual convention in North Little Rock.

Fournier, a native of Hot Springs, sees the race as very unpredictable at this point. He said it is obvious that people are tired of the war in Iraq and the tough economic times, with the ever-rising costs of fuel and food.

While the majority of Americans disagree with President Bush over the war, Fournier said Bush has held firm with his belief that the U.S. military should remain in Iraq. Thus, we know where he stands.

We also know that Senator John McCain stands for many of the same things as Bush, so there is little doubt about what McCain stands for.

On the other hand, Senator Barack Obama tends to be sliding a bit to the right or conservative side, said Fournier. American citizens are still not clear on what they would be getting if he were elected.

He said there are many similarities between the present age and about 100 years ago. One hundred years ago, people were concerned about economic conditions and about losing jobs. As the industrial revolution took hold, many people's jobs were replaced by machines.
