I voted for Obama!

Yes, I did cast my vote for him in a mock poll during the US Election Watch 2008 at SM Atrium this morning. The Cebu Bloggers Society was invited by the US ambassador to the Philippines to attend the event. The venue was full of television screens that monitor the 2008 US Presidential Election.

Barack Obama is definitely the leading presidential candidate in almost all states. And as of the writing of this post it seems that victory is on the democrats side. Mccain, the republican candidate must brace himself well to accept defeat.

The US Election Watch 2008 was headed by Paul Jones, the U.S. Deputy Chief of Mission. The event were attended by different private sector representatives, media, americans, and a few prominent local personalities. Among these prominent personalities are local politicians like Mayor Jonas Cortes of Mandaue City, Rep. Raul Del Mar, and Rep. Neressa Soon Ruiz(attired in a maong mini-skirt with a glamorous hairdo). There were also local media reporters who covered the event. They were Rico Lucena of ABS-CBN Cebu and Bobby Nalzaro of GMA 7.

Of course, the group didn’t let the event pass without taking the opportunity to have our pictures taken with the above mentioned people. The event also has overflowing supply of american foods from generous sponsors.

Anyways, it would only take you a few seconds to cast your vote in their automated voting system process. This, I discovered when I casted my vote in their mock poll area. It is a far cry from our current voting process here in PI that is done manually.

On the other hand, I’m a little disappointed that I have to leave the event by 12 noon because of work.

    But he wasn’t really connecting with the american people especially in the face of financial crisis.
