Kabul and Washington D.C understand each other well during the campaign: An observation



Anchor for Allvoices

The sudden trip of President Barack Obama to Kabul, Afghanistan could be viewed as one distinguishing feature of the Obama campaign. President Obama went to Afghanistan to sign a deal that binds Afghanistan and U.S for a common purpose that promotes the interest of both countries.

At this point and time, it is not important to delve on the important details of the deal. It is important to look into the timing of the deal with the present political campaign exercises in America. What are the advantages and disadvantages of the deal in the Obama campaign?

As to its advantages to the Obama campaign, It will gather Ya votes for Obama putting him the advantage over his would be opponent.

The disavantages will be votes of Nay against Obama from the other side of the fence and the rest of the American people.

However, the Obama campaign can convert the votes of Nay to votes of Ya with President Obama explaining he signed the deal for the greatest interest of America to make it more a done deal means more votes for Obama.
