What are the major qualities and weaknesses of Barak Obama?
seems to lack strong convictions
lacks leadership skills
often seems "bloodless"
too "soft" with foreign leaders sometimes
too "thin skinned"
great family man
seems like an overall "good guy"
seems to have compassion for others
Seems like he wants to do the best thing.
Lacks experience in the big pool.
He adores and is faithful to his life partner, Michelle.
A good dad to his kids.
He worked as a community organizer.
A committed professor.
He values education.
He hasn't delivered yet on his promise to send all US troops back to the US. Also thinks Al Qaeda is the main threat to US security when traitors are also living in the US, perhaps some of whom are "serving" his government, but are actually working on weakening his leadership.
Hope he works at making college education FREE and not just for those who could pay for it.
He values education indeed. Thanks for agreeing with me, habee.
And nice profile, btw. Wish I could write as good as you are.
"Hope he works at making college education FREE and not just for those who could pay for it."
Ands since when is higher education a right?
And why would college education be just a privilege? Why can't it be a right when learning is a birthright in itself?
It's sad that the privileged few have given so much power to a lifeless, artificial, enslaving object called money. Education is a potent equalizing instrument. To pursue it is a human right. It can help lead to freedom from ignorance, particularly from blindly believing those who say that they care for the poor majority when all they want is to preserve the exploitative and discriminatory status quo..
Strength - He is intelligent man , can think of holistic solution than immediate issues only , knows about world from larger perceptive than just from american perceptive..
Weakness - He created un necessary hope after mess created by bush..He should have understood that what he is saying wont be delivered in mere 4 years...
I hope he gets re-elected just in case he plans to run again. I also hope he won't be bullied by elitist interests coming from Congress and big business groups.
Aside from making tertiary education and hospitalization FREE, I also hope he'd:
*Give more rewards to business owners who have chosen to continue having their factories in the US instead of relocating them to a developing country for cheap labor;
*Give more rewards to farmers and encourage trade unionism (and not disempower them);
*Lift the Cuban embargo (even if the US government dislike Castro's ideology, it is anti-human to punish a whole population of fellow human beings); and
*Send all American soldiers stationed abroad back to their families soon and reform the US military from being an instrument to preserve an imperialist status quo into an instrument of genuine democracy and peace (not the kind that is used for commercial violence called war).
Strength - He's not Sarah Palin.
Weakness - He doesn't work 24/7 at not being Sarah Palin.

In a world where a college education becomes increasingly mandatory, do you think that people have a right to an affordable college education (or to an education at any level)?
