Barack Obama is accepting the Democratic nomination Thursday night with a lofty vision for the nation's future that is far easier to articulate than to accomplish.

The next occupant of the White House will inherit a half-trillion-dollar budget deficit that will severely crimp any plans for spending on new programs, as well as the messy endgame of the war in Iraq and growing energy and health-care challenges. A look at Obama's promises and the realities he would confront:
THE ECONOMY AND DEFICITS
TAXES
ENERGY
HEALTH CARE
FOREIGN POLICY
DEFENSE
EDUCATION

Interesting, very interesting. Read it with an "open" mind, if you can stomach it!

So you propose we leave the current policies in place?

McCain hasn't proposed anything to boost our economy.

McCain won't support out troops while he sends them to war.

McCain will take away women's rights.

McCain will give more tax breaks to the rich.

McCain will further weaken our relationships worldwide.

McCain has owes to lobbyist

McCains own party CREATED THIS MESS WE ARE IN NOW.

Man, you are just too shallow. How bout lesee what his platform is, then we can cuss and dis-cuss it all. I read somewhere BO's party put forth a 90-page summation of their platform. Have you seen it? If it's on the web, can you direct me to the site?

John McCain 2008 - John McCain for President (http://www.johnmccain.com/Informing/Issues/ - broken link)
This is the McCain paper on technology. Doesn't seem to have as many as Obama but I am still looking for one on social security. It isn't listed has anyone seen one and able to link it for others to see and corroborate.
