Never Mind Palin, Is McCain Ready To Be President?
McCain wants to be in charge of the world's most powerful, richest country, but he can't keep his own running mate with his program? And if elected, when negotiating with world leaders he didn't particularly like, would he not look them in the eyes? I used to think of John McCain as a respectable aisle-crosser who could control his temper when issues really were at stake, and who was willing to hear opposing views and negotiate positions so long as it was done respectfully. That has changed with this campaign. Not only has he picked an awful running mate, but his own behavior reveals him to be a temperamental Machiavellian with little substance who gives the appearance of having lost control of his own campaign. I wasn't going to vote for the guy to begin with, but now I'm having a hard time even respecting him.
