While I was in Argentina, one of the topics others asked me was about my opinion on American politics and whether I'm republican or democrat.

I'm neither. I registered myself as an independent voter. I am not too happy with either of the main political parties.

I have another understanding of American politics when I participated in my university's student government as a senator. As a side note, it's been a good experience but sometimes it can be frustrating and sometimes we can get on each others nerves. It was a good experience and I learned a lot so I have no regrets. I am quitting from my senator position.

I don't really like either McCain or Obama. It's like two rotten apples and trying to pick the lesser of the two evils. Sometimes, I really feel that they are not that much different from each other.

I'm so far leaning towards Obama.
