“If this idea doesn’t get you to vote for John McCain, nothing will.”
Saturday, September 6, 2008
Attention Hillary Clinton supporters (of which I was one). If this idea doesn’t get you to vote for John McCain, nothing will.
As someone who believes that Barack Obama is not ready or right, even if he was ready, for the position for which he is running, I’ve been looking for an excuse to vote for McCain. The addition of Sarah Palin to the ticket, and his bold criticism and repudiation of his own party at its convention, no less, are beginning to persuade me. I’m not quite there yet, but now it’s occurred to me…
As it turns out, I’ve been considering voting for John McCain for some time simply because I believe he’ll be a one term President, and not a bad one at that. Let’s assume I’m right, that his age pretty much assures us that he’ll be a one term President. Now flash forward four years.
Senator Obama won’t run again. He may want to, but the Democratic Party won’t let him. He had his chance, and now needs to give someone else his, or her turn. The Republicans run former Governor, now 49 year old Vice President Sarah Palin, and the Democrats finally get around to doing what they should have four years earlier. They nominate 65 year old Senator Hillary Clinton.
Clinton v. Palin for President, 2012. How ‘bout that?
