In my experience in dealing with Americans they tend to like things to be straight forward and like things not to involve much thought and these two pairing will most certainly NOT do this. The past few elections it has been two pairs of two white American males but this time round no such pairing exists. If push comes to shove and you can't be bothered to read the manifestos then it comes down to this, if you vote Republican you vote for the woman, but if you vote democrat then you vote for the Black guy. It is an interesting reflection of how times have changed and how politics is not just a sphere for White Males anymore.
At the end of the day I do care about this election as it will affect things here in the UK and elsewhere abroad, however there is a part of me that is really and truly sick of hearing about this election. This has mostly been caused by the whole Obama vs Clinton saga, I am not a huge fan of either of them and at it's height this saga was putting me off even opening a news paper because I knew that all I would read about would be that. Last time I checked McCain was ahead by 5 points all I can say is that I hope that it stays this way and that McCain can become the next president of the United States.
