Last night around 02:00BST there was a third and last Televised United States of America's Presidential candidates debate which featured Republicans' Sen. John McCain and Democrats' Sen. Barack Obama.
The debate was good in general, each candidate did perform well and to be fair it was very difficult to separate the two! So it will go to the wire!!
The positives I took from this debate, and other two previous debates, is that candidates, despite their differences in ideologies, policies, opinion and background, they always showed and put public interests first. Also both candidates looked calm, friendly, respecting each other and also they recognised each others' potential ability to lead their Nation. Above all, at the end of last night's debate both candidates praised each other and shook hands!
During the debate I witnessed political maturity and professionalism from both Presidential candidates. This is a lesson we, in Africa, have to learn -that irrespective our differences in political opinion or beliefs, we should be friends and put forward the people's interests and not personal interests. Eventually the voters would have the last say and whoever ultimately wins we should be behind him/her for the interest of our respective nations. By doing this conflicts and wars would be a thing of the past and 'peace and prosperity' would flourish forever! God Bless Africa.
