Perceptions of Barack Obama And John McCain In The Middle East

This is the seventh installment of our (not so) weekly column entitled Ask a Shiite. Our resident Shiite and United Arab Emirates citizen will be fielding questions of a philosophical, physical, and political nature in regards to Shiite Islamic belief and Middle East perception. Interested in asking a question? Send an email to alec.

Question: What is your opinion of Barack Obama and John McCain? And what are the general perceptions of Middle Easterners to both candidates? What relations and future do you imagine between America and the Middle East under either candidate?

Answer: People, including myself, think that McCain seems to be reckless like Bush and a racist and extremist person, while Obama seems more moderate and promises a better future.
