  • Not a very good day.

    Not a very good day.
    Today Barack Obama was elected President of the United states. Truthfully i wanted John Mccain to win the most votes but obviously that didnt happen. I think Johm has more experience in the states. An interesting fact that most people probablly dont know about John Mccain is that he was a prisoner of war in the Vietnam War. In October 1967 John was on a bombing mission over in Hanoi, he was shot down and seriously injured, then captured by the North Vietnamese. He was a prisoner untill 1973.
