I like McCain–I do give him credit for being an independent thinker (for the most part) and I don’t think *all* of his campaign platforms are unreasonable.
But in my mind, the choice for president is quite clear. On one hand, we have an eloquent speaker who is intelligent and experienced enough to understand and articulate the subtleties of racial relations in America–and who isn’t afraid to talk about the issue. While on the other hand, we have a career politician who–while on a trip designed to showcase his foreign policy experience–fails to grasp even the most rudimentary facts in a region that will dominate foreign policy issues for at least the next several presidential terms.
One is a politician–and maybe a decent one–but the other one is clearly a leader.
