I am considering taking a Republican primary ballot and voting for McCain. Why? Because my candidate Obama is pretty much safe in Georgia. Although I fully support him, he does not need my vote here really. But McCain really does and to my way of thinking, if we can elect McCain, that will pretty much insure that we do not get stuck with another idiot neo con for the next 4 years. If your Democrat candidate is safe in your state, you should think about this as well.

Why not vote for Huckabee?

I actually considered for about two seconds going to our democratic caucus on Feb. 5, just to oppose Clinton, since our Rep. primary is in May. But my conscience wouldn't allow me to support Obama either.

Why be so dishonest to yourself?

Please consider this before you vote for McCain.
HE VOTED FOR NAFTA.
This means he supports the NAU.
See stopthenau.org
Please.

See also the voting record of Ron Paul.

McCain is weak on immigration, I think that is why he likes him.

There are many things about McCain I dislike but as a Democrat and a liberal, McCain is the least objectionable of the candidates that have any chance of winning over there. If I have my way obviously Obama will be the next President of the United States but McCain would provide some degree of insurance.

I really think it is unfair to vote for someone on the other side if you aren't serious about the candidate. It diluates the real meaning of voting.

That's a good idea, KevK. Although I plan to vote for Obama in the Georgia primary, I will vote for McCain should Clinton get the nomination.

I think whatever you say about McCain, he is a at least a very honorable person who served his country with great courage. I like most of his policies, from NAFTA to spending cuts and etc. However, I hate his position on war and his wilson/neo-conservative foreign policy and that makes it impossible to vote for him.

I would only vote for obama in general election(already did in the primary) or not vote at all. Hillary and McCain are the same on foreign policy issues and I just think their views are destroying our country.
