He clearly cares deeply about America and the problems facing the average Joe.

Big John is going to have get gnarly, like Bob Dole was until 1996 (I think the Viagra turned his mind to mush just when he went into the campaign of his life against Rotund Bill). Bob Dole was the perfect opposition leader---an articulate pit bull. The public knows very well a big Dem spending bill = payola and never-ending, shoddy work. The fate of the Boston "Big Dig"---an epic of corruption and maladministration---is the perfect example, and the public is getting less and less enthusiastic about the Dem program the more they learn. Add to that, stealth programs to pay for the health care of illegal immigrants' children when Americans are losing their jobs and medical care is an eye gouge which will rebound on the Dems.

P.S. The sight of all these patrician order Dems who failed to pay taxes was a red flag to honest Americans who paid their taxes and were treated like dirt by the IRS (as I was last year, a very educational experience). Add to this, some of the meretricious snooks were actually seated by the Dems in Congress despite their "lapse". Incredible. If the Reps had tried to get away with this the heavens would have sundered from the howling outcry.

Do you think McCain would be grateful or ashamed of some of the sour grape antics we've seen on this forum?....
My guess is his own conduct of integrity, good sportsmanship, honest frank word backed by action holds the answer.

My original point was that McCain in his normal day to day mode seems to be a solid leader. Going through the crucible of a Vietnam torture experience had quite an effect.

With literally almost the entire journalistic establishment arrayed against him, his run from the time O was nominated was one long firing squad.

Now that O needs him, he has been resurrected, reluctantly.

You really have to go out of your way to dislike McCain. If I have any criticism of him, it is that he was possibly too nice a guy for the Bowie knife fighting of Presidential runs. Sarah's instincts were always right, and were classic for the modern campaign---strike hard, strike sure, and take no prisoners!

If modern conservatism wants to be taken seriously they shouldn't pick joke candidates.

..... As far as assessing the viability of political candidates for high office is concerned, you'll forgive me if I question the wisdom of people who nominated Al Gore to run for the presidency of the United States of America, not to mention Al Franken for US Senate.

As far as the 2008 presidential election is concerned, I think that the jury remains out on who the REAL joke candidate was. We'll see.

I agree with your sentiment about McCains likability. I never directly had a problem with McCain, in fact I was all for him on his other presidential bid. But I must disagree with the idea that Palin had the right idea about campaigning, there is nothing I hate worse than a dirty, mudslinging attack campaign and that is what Sarah was all about. She took as many low shots as she thought she could get away with. I dislike that and was glad that for the most part McCain and Obama were above that sort of thing.

I will say that McCain is definitely one of the more respectable and respectful Republicans out there...not to mention a very funny and warm kind of guy. Check out his past appearances on the Daily Show. Unfortunately for him, though he was perfect for a casual late night talk show interview, he was never a good speaker or a good formal interviewee.

Also I think he was VERY badly served by his GOP handlers. They must have given him ridiculously bad advice because he went from being a wise and funny bipartisan and independent guy to being a cranky and partisan broken record that kept repeating the same pointless BS about scary liberals that has become the stock in trade of the modern GOP.

If he had surrounded himself with like-minded, independent people instead of hyperpartisan GOP flacks who wanted to repeat Bush's previous campaigns, my guess is the election might have been closer.

Choosing Palin was a calculated gamble that went the other way. With the unpredictable mix that is the American public & media, anything can happen. As it is, everyone chomped at the bit to elect the first [insert whatever is different than white] president, and the air temp was just right for the change/hope scam to work.

More time/less time, a few news stories and our haphazard voters may have decided what we really need is our first lady vice president.

So it goes.

My sentiments exactly, even more so for the Dems elected to the Senate and House. Of course, we get the chance to throw some of them out in 2 years.

Who was it that said "Be careful what you wish for, you may just get it"?
