    This goes out to my conservative/republican friends. I love you. I did some research on the voting records of major political figures. So as a sign of my acceptance that liberals are not always right, i will tell you, mcain is not even half bad. His experience and leadership are truly a great asset. A decorated veteran and stalwart soldier even amidst brutal torture, are signs that i don't think he wishes ill on this country. He's a strong christian and a good father. This is big since my father is not around and seeing that guys do care about their families is quite nice and very respectable. He's also a faithful husband, which is also a big thing in my mind. There are some policies regarding torture and was prisoners that i can bitch about but, i think he really cares for the safety of our country. As what some would call a liberal, i just happen to disagree. But he has valid beliefs. I seriously doubt a man who was tortured by the Vietnamese would advocate torture just for fun. And he also states that war is horrid, and would rather have alliances. As he was a was veteran, calling him a liar on that would be ridiculous. Let's hear it for Mcain, he's cool with me.

    I also admire McCain

    But I doubt if his ex wife would support the "faithful husband" tag

    I actually like McCain. I liked him more before he sucked up to the "base" and GWB....

    I'd have considered giving my vote to the man who ran for president in 2000.... the guy who showed up with Palin? Not so much.

    I liked McCain--until he proposed a trillion dollar tax cut that he couldn't pay for!!!

    In general, if one looks at JSM's voting record on veterans, it is not a pretty picture. However, one must also take into consideration his position on pork spending. He did not vote for bills if there was pork present.

    I don't dislike McCain. I just don't think he would make a good President. He'd be better than the President we have now though. Hell, even dumbass me would be a better President than what we have now!!!
