Dr Zia Hasan Analyzes US Politics


Thursday night, Senator Barak Obama accepted Democratic party's nomination -- becoming the first African-American to lead a major party ticket. Almost 40-million people watched his acceptance speech on television at a stadium filled with about 80-thousand cheering supporters.

In a speech filled with policy specifics, Obama said McCain would simply continue what he described as the failed policies of President George Bush. Obama vowed to end the Iraq war responsibly and finish the fight against al-Qaida and the Taliban. He also pledged to cut taxes for working families, stop giving tax breaks for corporations that move jobs overseas, and end U.S. dependence on foreign oil.

Meanwhile, U.S. Republican presidential candidate John McCain has chosen a relatively unknown -- Alaska Governor Sarah Palin -- as his vice presidential running mate.

McCain announced his selection on Friday to a crowd of supporters at a rally in Dayton, Ohio, ahead of next week's Republican National Convention. He called Palin the "right partner" with strong principles, a fighting spirit and deep compassion. The social and economic conservative is the first woman to run on the Republican party's national ticket.

Dr. Zia Hasan is the vice president for planning, assessment and information services at Claflin University in South Carolina. In an interview with Voice of America's Bangla Service, Dr. Hasan analyzes Barack Obama's speech and John McCain's vice presidential selection.

Dr. Hasan also spoke about how all this will influence Hillary Clinton's supporters and the independent voters.
