Contrary to all the posts lately, I do not think McCain would be a terrible President. While I do not think he would change much about the disastrous policies of the past 8 years, I also think he is a seasoned politician who would have to carefully deal with a Democrat-run House and Senate. But McCain is an old man [older than Alaska, in fact], and he has survived 5 plane crashes, 4 bouts of cancer, and 5 1/2 years as a tortured POW. There is a very reasonable concern that he would not survive his 4 years of service, leaving his joke of a running mate Sarah Palin in charge. That is an incredibly scary, sobering thought, and if you are voting for McCain, you really need to think about this one:
Any one of these is scary enough to put me off ever thinking of voting for the ticket, and there are a lot more, but maybe it’s not enough to concern the right-leaning amongst you. Don’t listen to me if you are a conservative who plans on voting along party lines and only listening to the opinions and advice of respected members of your own party; instead listen to the opinions and advice of respected members of your own party. Sarah Palin is dangerous for America, it is not an issue of her lack of experience for the job, it is her history and her ideology.
