I voted for Barack Obama. But had Obama lost to John McCain I would not have lost any sleep worrying about this country’s future. McCain is highly intelligent, morally sound and a person of good judgment who would have been an effective and productive president even if he and I differed on the importance of some issues or how policy was put into effect to deal with those issues.
I look at people like Sarah Palin and Sharron Angle. Palin was a heartbeat away from the presidency had McCain been elected, and Angle would have taken the place of Nevada’s powerful and sound thinking U.S. Senator. Those possibilities should make every one of you shudder – and if this doesn’t make you shudder, you ought to rethink your approach to governing this country.
