Well to me McCain pick of Gov.Palin was the final stroke, his jas lost his way from the time of the Straight Talk Express and has left the likes that
completely destroy him and drag his name through the mud in 2000 run his campaign. He has put his political ambitions first rather than his
Im was leaning to vote for Obama because of Bush, I'm in the military, Im tired of war that have no direction, no leadership, no end. I was willing
to give my vote to McCain but when he started ranting about Iran it definately got my attention, then he kept up the rhetoric against Iran while Obama
talks diplomacy. The McCain ranted about Russia... what does he wants a war in two fronts against Russia and Iran? Thats where judgement comes into
play in my opinion.
A funny thought if we go to war with Russia and Iran... how we going to fill up our jets and our tanks?
Anyways... back on track... Gov. Palin.... and lets use some common sense here... McCain is old, there is no other way to put it...O-L-D he can take
office on Monday and probably (God forbid) die the next day. I can not consciously vote for such a ticket. On the other hand Obama is going to have
smart people surrounding him, Collin Powell name is high on the list, Bill Richardson, Hillary is definately going to be there either as a senator or
some other cabinet appointment. Biden and his gaffes aside is a smart statesmen that if something happens to Obama he would be more than qualified to
step in given the current choices that I see.
To me is kind of like a win win situation, even if McCain gets elected he might go back to be the McCain of old, the one I used to like, the reformer
and straight talker, but with all this pandering and lack of judgement that he has shown of late I dont see how can I vote for him.
EDIT TO ADD: I think this race is going to be decided as soon as the candidates start announcing their picks for the cabinet positions.
