16. Do we really want McCain?
Edited on Thu Jun-26-08 06:46 AM by sandypoo
Obama could make history. He could be the first African American to sit in the white house. For the last 7 + years we've had pretty much a neocon spree in our government, and the Constitution has suffered as a result. I was a Hillary supporter and was disappointed she didn't win the nod. But we as Democrats and Progressives need to stand united behind Obama and end the madness. If we don't like something he has voted for, let him know in no uncertain terms.

McCain is pretty much McSame to me. He panders to the conservative right a little too much for my taste. :eyes:
