That isn't true. Senator McCain does as much as he can to adhere to his principles even in times of adversity. I do think if there were a chance for Senator McCain to get Mr. Justice Blackmun's opinion in the Roe v Wade optative abortion decision overturned, he might settle over the nonconsensuality issue -- that's a very small percentage of the abortions that take place.

    His faithful wife Cindy is almost certainly for age-associated reasons infertile, and Senator Obama, much as I dislike some aspects of him, I fully believe is faithful to his marriage vows, and almost certainly isn't a rapist, even though he's in my opinion quite corrupt.

    I think your comment is inappropriate.

    Sincerely,

    It was inappropriate, and I wasn't serious. I already mentioned that I heard it on the Stern Show and thought it was funny. A couple of things bothered me about your post. First, McCain has changed his position on numerous issues, after all this is a man that wrote an immigration bill, then said he wouldn't vote for his own bill. So I wouldn't be so sure that he wouldn't change his "principles" if push came to shove, he has been changing them since he became a canadiate. Second, I never said anything about anyone being rapped. I hope rape didn't come to your post just because Obama is a black man and Cindy is a white woman.

    I think a third party vote is effectively more like an abstention, but I wrote Senator John McCain in on my ballot in the general election when he didn't win the Republican nomination.

    It doesn't matter what a candidate believes about abortion. The Supreme Court has already ruled that (within certain restrictions) it is legal. If a conservative is elected to the Office of President, he will probably appoint constructionist judges who believe in upholding prior Supreme Court decisions. Liberal candidates don't believe in precident. To them, the Constitution is an evolving work and their appointees feel they can change whatever they want.

    MANY moderates/independants would give McCain their vote if he'd soften his abortion stance.

    I can't fricking stand Obama, and I agree with McCain on about 75% of his stances. However, I will NOT vote for a Candidate who wants to make abortion illegal. I simply will NOT.

    So I will be voting for a 3rd party. End of story.

    Honestly though, I wish McCain would just leave abortion out his platform. Even though it's not going to change, too many people will be distracted by that one issue

    She would court the conservative base, add youth and domestic experience to his ticket, and most importantly, court the upset Clinton supporters.

    I can't take credit, Howard Stern said it on his show last week.

    Please come up with a better reason than that. The man can't help what he is named. And if he changed it to something more "American", you'd jump on him for changing it. Honestly, I've said it before, if he had the exact same background, but his name was Bobby Harold O'Reilly, he wouldn't be getting half the flack he is right now.
