In the next couple of weeks millions of Americans from all over the global will be going to the polls on November 4th to elect a new president, between Democrat Barack Obama and Republican John McCain. If Obama wins, would be the first black American President. But will Obama as the President of America be in the best interest of the Caribbean and the same can be said for John McCain.
Over on BBC Caribbean website, there is an on-going discussion forum on “US-Caribbean relations“, and how most of the Caribbean islands have excepted the US foreign policy under the Bush administration. More and more Caribbean migrants live in the United States that anywhere else in the world.
While relations between the US and the Caribbean have been good, there have nevertheless been policy differences on several issues, and the big questions by BCC Caribbean editors are:
Will get better with Obama?
Will there be gains with McCain?
Or will it be status quo no matter how it goes?
