I have to say I am surprised. After reading his comments on why he bowed out I can also say I admire him for caring enough for our country to do it.

I will also say and have said before most Mormons have high morals they just do not have clue what God's word says.

Let us NOT turn this into a religous issue.

I was very surprised myself.  Although I thought he was fighting a losing battle, I expected him to go quite a bit further before he hung it up.  Now the debate begins about who is helped the most by this...McCain or Clinton/Obama?  I've heard both sides of the argument and am inclined to believe that it helps McCain more, although someone made a compelling argument this morning about Clinton/Obama getting most of the press as a result...thoughts?

My first thought is, "How in the world can I bring myself to vote for John McCain?"



I'm going to have to, of course, but I just don't know if I can hold my nose tightly enough with one hand and vote with the other. I was born when Harry Truman was POTUS, and I don't recall an election when a) the country was more in need of a great President, and b) the choices were so poor. Geez Louise! Even the Gerald Ford/Jimmy Carter election was better than this!

Yeah I agree not to bring religious ideas into this.  There are Mormons on here (at least one).  I don't appreciate you bashing my religion.

I remember when people were worried that President John Kennedy might be taking orders from the Pope.

Are you kidding me?  The last election we definitely needed a "great" president.  We didn't get one.  And look who we had to choose from:  GWBush, arguably one of the worst 3 presidents in history, and John Kerry...?  I'm not sure how he got the dem nom, but talk about poor choices.

John McCain, is a war hero and a truly great man, I admire him more then anyone else currently in public service. Even if you don't agree with a lot of his postions there is no arguing he loves his country and has given more for American then anyone else in this race in either party.

He will be a fine President.

Looks like Hillary got spanked today.



As much as I'd like to see her go down in flames, in all honesty I think that she'd be easier to beat than Obama.

Agreed. Obama speaks in platitudes, which leave to the listener's imagination, what great and wonderful things he'll accomplish. A lot of the voting public sop-up that cr*p like soup.
 
On the other hand, for those who are reasonably intelligent and skeptical, a little bit of digging into Obama's beliefs will uncover the nightmare that awaits.

The last thing this country needs is some guy who's entire career (which isn't much 4 years as a state senator and less then 1 term in the US Senate) sprung from a label i.e. the first African American elected as editor of the Harvard law review( they year then emphased giving it to a minority).

American needs leadership not hype, McCain for all his flaws is a leader, Obama is a bunch of hype.

p.s. Also 2 years ago a friend of mine dragged me to a Dem. fund raiser where Obama was speaking, he was not impressive at all, he speaks loudly and sounds nice but doesn't ever say anything.

Wow that was bad "the year they emphasized giving it to a minority " is what I was shooting for.
