Title says it all...what did you think?

Personally I'm only just beginning to form my own views and I don't quite know what to say. Being at an international school we watched it together and the different perspectives were amazing. I felt much more cynical than I did back in 2008, and I felt that the speech wasn't as good as I expected.

Also, for me it was a time to question my identity a bit as I come from two countries....when one of them yells that they're the greatest nation, am I obliged to agree? Must I place myself on one of two sides? How should I discuss or think about the elections when they are country-centered and we're so used to thinking religion-centered? Can I even support a candidate if something they support is un-Islamic? Or do I just voice that I feel one candidate is better than the other?

Thoughts?

I didn't listen to his speech.  Actually, I can't listen to the guy without wanting to vomit.
