How is McCain any different? You're willing to gamble on someone who has supported Bush doctrine 90% of the time and you're buying that he's going to change? Because of his words? It's the same deal both ways, but at least with Obama you're not going to get Bush and given his education, he cannot possibly do a worse job than the chimp. Factor in that McCain has a greater than normal chance of dying (Hello Melanoma!) you would be willing to risk cariboo barbie? That's just plain ludicrous to me, aren't you at all worried that Palin might one day run the show?
