10. With all due respect to the views of Amb. Wilson...
"Their was a time when I believed that Sen. Mc Cain would have been a good choice for president. A time when we were at peace with Russia, a time when when he was respected as a true moderate; a pragmatist that was respected across the isle, and America. A time when America was respected as a honest broker on the world stage.

But that world no longer exists. Not a single afore mentioned situation exists anymore. The John Mc Cain of the 2000 Republican primary, as well as the respect he, and America enjoyed, lives no more. America's standing disappeared when Bush entered Iraq, and John's disappeared when he took Bush and his war into his arms."

I predict that a line similar this will be marked as the defining moment sighted when people look back on the 8 years of service a President Barack Obama.
