Albeit reluctantly, I choose to support the better man for a better America: BARACK OBAMA whose statement on the still evolving news of Lehman Brothers' bankruptcy, the sale of Merrill Lynch, and troubles at AIG (the USA's biggest insurer) follows:
"The challenges facing our financial system today are more evidence that too many folks in Washington and on Wall Street weren't minding the store. Eight years of policies that have shredded consumer protections, loosened oversight and regulation, and encouraged outsized bonuses to CEOs while ignoring middle-class Americans have brought us to the most serious financial crisis since the Great Depression."
UPDATE:From ScienceBlogs a great new group blog that addresses the US Presidential Elections from the point of view of the key scientific issues of the day. A Vote for Science.
