Like him? Don't like him? Does he have elder statesmen written all over him, or is he an old buffoon? Does he get almost everything right, wrong, or somewhere in between? Why did you vote for him (yes, all three of you should answer for perspectives sake)? Why didn't you (if you could vote)? If you couldn't, would you have? Why or why not? Did it have anything to do with 1) Bush? 2) Palin? 3) McCain references to the fundamentals of the economy? (That is willingness of the workforce, BTW) 4) Thinking he would die in office? 5) Iraq? 6) Russia? 7) Iran? 8) Being Republican? 9) Obama 10) His 'center-right' stances? 11) Do you feel he is a different person than from before? Well, you get the picture. How much do you really know about him? Now be honest. What do you think are his postive traits? What do you think are his negative traits (besides the accused lack of ability to pick a running mate)? Final question... okay, here it goes... If McCain was a major competitor in the 2004 election against both Bush AND Kerry... for whom would you have voted? You can choose a 'minor' candidate. ATTENTION: This thread is not for reliving the hysteria of the 2008 election. Please keep your hysteria in a shoebox or a similar container and put it in a closet or a drawer, until you leave the thread. All violators will be 'ed.' Survivors will be 'ed,' again.
