18. I say it as often as I can
But Du is DU and you can't really force someone to think the way you do. All I can do is to say it over and over.

A McCain Presidency is scary as hell and in my opinion the WORST case scenario for Obama is that he is medicocre and doesn't really accomplish much.

AT this point just having someone not making things worse would be an improvement.
