Why would anyone middle class vote McCain, who clearly supports the plutocracy, while Obama supports the working class

Because they want to stay middle class. Obama wants to equalize the playing field. Russia tried that once and succeeded. They all became poor.

Obama supports Obama. He doesn't give a crap about anyone, except how they might serve his ambition.

At the start of Bush term 2000 I would not call it plutocracy, or rule by the rich, but now I would - rule by rich corporations and individuals.

Uninformed....willfully ignorant.....stupid. Take your pick to describe Democrats who failed to learn about the failures of socialism in the last century.

They are incredibly venal, not plutocratic. It gives them a chance to use the government as a jackpot machine.
