  • Super Tuesday US Elections 2008 | ucdclinton.ie | UCD Clinton
    results of Super Tuesday and their implications for the nominations and the election in November With results still not fully available when the discussion took place several trends were identified by the panelists as they considered outcomes In particular there was commentary on the voting patterns supporting each candidate With the Democratic nomination contest seemingly too close to call the voting patterns underlying support for Senators Obama and Clinton was deemed to be significant in indicating the eventual nomination Sen Clinton showed strong support among Hispanic women blue collar and older voters while Sen Obama s strongest blocs were among Africa American young and more affluent male voters The candidate who can draw beyond these established trends would likely win the nomination The incoming results for Republican candidates suggested a less fractured vote with Sen John McCain taking a commanding lead and Gov Mitt Romney almost certainly being forced out of the race Some observers noted that the strong polling for Sen Mike Huckerbee in southern states indicated that Sen McCain will continue to have difficulties uniting Republicans nationally as more hard core conservatives remain reluctant to support him Commenting on the importance of this election Professor Liam Kennedy Director of the UCD Clinton Institute for American Studies noted This has been a fascinating election campaign thus far especially due to its unpredictability This is due in part to the strong lineup of candidates but also to the moving forward of primary and caucus dates and the shifting concerns of the electorate The war in Iraq has moved down the list of concerns of most voters as the economy has moved up At the same time this unpredictable nature of the campaign has meant a dilution of the influence of activists fundraisers and pundits At the risk of being prematurely

    among these states the UN charter has become the accepted basis of the international rule of law It is significant to note that the charter is a method to achieve greater peace and prosperity In the new century the United States is enjoying an unrivalled pre eminence in all fields From economics to politics the US is dominant and significantly it views itself as such This confidence stems from the view of a manifest destiny Historically the US has felt invulnerable However September 11th 2001 altered this perception and the rest of the world is feeling the impact of America s reaction Guided by the US National Security Strategy of 2002 the Bush administration is fighting a pre emptive war against international terrorism However there are some clear problems with this adopted strategy If the goal of America is to defeat international terrorism than perhaps a strategy of preventive rather than pre emptive war might be prudent After all preventive war is designed to tackle a long term war while pre emptive is designed to fight short term wars Notwithstanding this significant difference other questions in the adopted security strategy need to be addressed First when will this war end International terrorism is a method and not a tangible entity so how is one to know when victory is accomplished Second in an effort to build a coalition of the willing the administration has adopted what it believes to be a persuasive stance by identifying those states that are not with us are against us Again perhaps a more prudent way to build a coalition of willing states would be to adopt a more inclusive phrase such as those that are with us are not against us Finally if the mission determines the coalition of states who determines the mission So why are these policies misguided First a pre emptive war against terrorism must be based on intelligence This does not constitute an intelligent war At present it is more likely to feed resentment around the Islamic world Second can the war be sustained So far this war has cost 87 billion dollars and significantly the US is borrowing millions around the world Third America s policy has turned away from the multilateral processes of the UN This war has seriously undermined international law What is a possible alternative Incrementally the world should move in a new direction All states are faced with the bane of international terrorism and we should adopt a thoughtful approach to dealing with non state actors All nations must understand and use the United Nations despite its weaknesses All should work to enhance the United Nations capacity and reform the organisation America should adopt a decent respect for the opinions of mankind All states should work to resolve the Middle East crisis Will these policies be adopted Significantly second term presidents are usually freer but we must factor in the reality principle Dr David Ryan University College Cork Dr Ryan offered an interesting analysis of
