Obama's recent trip to the Middle East to boost his foreign policy has bore fruits.Iraqis seem to like him but remain divided on his policies. "I support Obama. I think he is the best for Iraq and for the world ... if McCain wins I will be devastated," said Mustafa Salah, an office worker in the southern city of Basra. Hisham Fadhil, a doctor in northern Kirkuk added: "He is much better than others because he is black and black people were tyrannized in America. I think he will feel our suffering." "When I was in the United States I found Democrats are more peaceful and avoid wars," Mohammed said. Obama has been a great opposer to the US invasion of Iraq but still other Iraqis are divided about his policies. Others were dismissive of the U.S. presidential election in general, more concerned with the struggle of daily life in Iraq. "For the moment I'm thinking about getting enough electricity. I do not believe either candidate will change the situation in Iraq," said Abdul-Mahdi Hadi, a Basra teacher.
