i think it's less that they are discounted and more that they've been disproved as automatic qualifiers for the presidency.

i know it's unpopular, but i think his experiences as a POW work against my estimation of his qualification. i have respect for the man, can't imagine what he went through, but i do question his temperance. i say this as someone who has suffered from a degree of PTSD in the past year, and my issue isn't even a whisper of what McCain went through. he can't not be scarred. he can't not be damaged.

his judgment on the Iraq war and his enthusiasm for a confrontation with Iran ultimately belie your point above, and the Palin pick undermines any notion that McCain is a serious candidate with serious positions on anything, whether it be war, peace, taxes, or infrastructure.

If McCain wins, the sun will come up the next morning. Grass will still be green. The ocean still blue. Pizza will still taste good. Sex will still feel good. Our internet and our televisions will still work. Beautiful girls will still be beautiful. Puppies will still be cute. We will still be alive.

This is so stupid, it's actually quite funny.

You don't get your way in the election so you want to defect? Absolutely retarded!

Come On! McCain has got to be the most "liberal" republican we've seen in a long time. You make him out to be Hitler or something.

I think Hitler might've been taller.

if McCain wins, i predict an awful 4 years of an incredibly bitter population, especially amongst african-americans and youth, and the increased exacerbation of the bifurcation of the population into "us" and "them" (i.e., "real Americans" and "urban elites.")

I plan on pulling an all nighter on Nov. 4.
I will not go to sleep until a winner is announced.
In this country that could be January, but anyway...
If McCain wins, well, I'm pretty sure I'll be drinking quite a bit over the next 4 years.
Compound that with how much I've drank in the last 8, I think I'm gonna have a real problem on my hands.
How much does crack cost these days?

Irvine,

You make it sound as if Obama holds 90% of the popular vote. Keep it in mind that this election is still close. It doesn't matter who wins or loses, there will be a bitter segment of the population.
No matter who wins, the "bifurcation" (I had to look this word up) of the population will also continue.

Eight years ago. He's not much different than any other Republican now, including Bush.

it doesn't matter what the percentage is. the perception, based on the polls, is that Obama is going to win by 7-10%.

if he doesn't, it's going to be a shocker, and one that will likely be blamed on racism, and conspiracy theories.

you also can't discount the fact that Obama's supporters are *very* enthusiastic, McCain's aren't.

and i totally disagree with your final statement. the McCain/Palin campaign is predicated upon the time-tested Nixon in '68 strategy which is pitching the "good folks" against "them" -- look at the language they're using in Western Pennsylvania.

$200 or so for an 8-ball.

Regardless of where McCain is (or was) on the political spectrum, it's still completely childish to suggest moving to another country if one doesn't get his or her political way.
