I rather believe in experience and a person who is down to earth and knows how to address the troops and what is important and has judgment skills.

His hope and change is a bogus campaign slogan - most thinking, reasonable people are aware of this.

And they will continue to be made aware in the coming months.

His "hope and change" theory will only help himself, it will be of no help to this country because he doesn't know what he's doing.

I think a lot of people (or all people) are looking for change of direction and leadership, which is why association with the GOP is handicapping McCain. It's not even really a GOP/Dem thing, its more that we're kind of burned out on the so-called "old politics."

I haven't found anyone who's currently happy with the way things are going in Washington. Confidence in the government is at a pretty low level.

Which is ultimately why people will choose the "riskier" candidate over the same proven failure they've suffered through for 8 years.

I see where you are going but I see McCain as a riskier candidate. Guy is a fossil, and we need some younger dynamic leadership in these contentious global times.

So you believe more of the "staying the course", more of the McSame will help?

What will it help?

Do you really believe that change and hope from Obama will help?

That should be rephrased, "Do you really believe that having "Move On.org" in charge will help?

How insane.
