McCain is very liberal. He is probably the most liberal Republican in my lifetime. I was actually surprised that he got the Republican
McCain will not be "McBush", as many like to say. We have a Democratic congress who will keep things balanced if need be. In my opinion, nobody
can be compared to Bush. He is a disaster.
Experience has a lot to do with it. I do not want someone that has little experience making decisions for me. Would you want an intern to perform
your open heart surgery? No thanks, I'll stick to the Pro's!
What separates McCain from Clinton, in my opinion, is that he does not support a more "socialized" health care system. His stance on the war is
different. I understand the need to bring our troops home, but no matter who becomes the next President, it is unreasonable to think that we would be
able to immediately withdraw all of our troops. It will take years. I do respect the fact that McCain has served our country. He knows better than
any candidate the cost of war and the toll it takes on our country. These are just a couple of issues, of course.
There are other issues, of course, but in all honesty, I am confident that John McCain will do a better job than Barack Obama. I am not comfortable
with a "newbie" having so much control over this country. Let him gain some experience and come back in 8 years to try again.
