If you look at both profiles of the candidates (which I did), then it is a no brainer. We need someone who is forward thinking. I have to say McCain at 894 out 898 in his class was compelling. I'd love to see where Obama landed. I want a smart person capable of thinking things through and making intelligent decisions that will effect both the rest of my life and the lives of my children and grandchildren. We can no longer afford to make a guess that McCain would not follow in the WORST president this country has ever had foot-steps. It's time to have a leader who is forward thinking,will attack issues in a pro-active manor and not flying by the "seat of their pants" by taking a "putting fires out" stance on the all the extreme issues that this county is facing today: So many issues, a major new crisis everyday. WHAT THE HELL HAPPENED? We need a fresh approach or maybe not even a fresh approach, but, a real person who can relate to all of us making intelligent common sense decisions that are for every citizen of this country and not for SPECIAL BUSINESS!
