Poll question: Is Senator John McCain the greatest living Republican over age 35 who hasn't been President?

Sorry, polls are turned off at Level 3.

2. The world would be a better place if there were no living
Republicans (that's harsh, but it is my honest opinion.)

4. Yeah...We have irreconcilable differences.
It's time to divorce them and take the kids.

3. Not many, but Olympia Snowe comes to mind. Better than McCain.
I suppose Colin Powell, too. Slim bench, to say the least.

7. Is this some bizarre challenge where you have to use the words "McCain" and "living" in a sentence
McCain isn't even the best Repub who ran for his party's nomination

8. Well first of all he ain't "great"
and in fact I'd even question whether or not he's "living".

So I'm not sure I accept the premise of your poll.

He is a republican and over age 35 however.

11. Well, I'm not convinced that "greatest" implies "great." For example...

Which of the following values is greatest?
a) one percent of one percent of two percent
b) 1/333,332
c) 0.000003

None of the three options is a very substantial fraction of 100%, but one of them is the greatest in the list of three items.

9. There ARE no truly great republicans. Otherwise they'd be
democrats. And then there STILL wouldn't be any great republicans.

10. McCain is a great Republican who has never been President, and he never will be either
McCain will be lucky to get 35% of the popular vote.

12. I really don't think of McSame as a "leader"
He has no stance. His so called maverick stances are probably just the result of him being confused on those days.
