    I want anyone who can get something done that is good for the country and not for their party. But like you I have always liked McCain. I had mand my mind up that I would vote for him no matter what. As long as he didnt try to get rid of Religious school clubs.

    -What exactly has McCain gotten done? the immigration bill he was supporting? the McCain-Liberman act?

    I think they show he is (1) willing to tackle tough issues, and (2) work across party lines to get something accomplished--rather than simply rely on rhetoric as so many Congressmen do. I think it says quite a bit for him, actually.

    Compared to the Do-Nothing (historical reference intended) Republican delegation from Colorado, and the my-way-or-the-highway executive currently in the WH, McCain could be a breath of fresh air.

    Mat, I couldn't agree more. I'm actually a big fan of McCain, not because I agree with his positions (which I often don't), but because of his willingness to reach across the isle and make compromises.

    I was pointing out how he hasn't "gotten anything done" because some posters are saying they don't like Obama/Clinton because they haven't gotten anything passed...

    Okay, I didn't pick up on that. I see it now. Yeah, I suppose the "hasn't done anything" argument is pretty malleable and can be stretched quite a ways by political opponents. Evidence, as we've seen over and over again, that if you repeat something often enough, people will believe it.

    Please tell me what has Clinton or Obama done in their careers in the Senate? Then tell me what have they done in their professional careers to show that they have what it takes to run this country.

    PS. I am not a big McCain fan but will be voting for him as he is closer to my beliefs.

    It kinda of depends on what you mean by "doing something". Serving as a Senator seems like a huge responsibility to me. Serving as 1st Lady is too. Getting your law degree and working as a lawyer and serviing on various boards and making numerous appearances in public is also doing something. Sorry if I'm not too persuaded by vague claims about not doing something. I'll tell one thing: Clinton and Obama and probably McCain all have the intellect for the job--which is more than I can say for the current resident.

    Actually, our current President shows why having a great resume coming in doesn't really guarantee they will be a good President. Carter was like that too.

    I always laugh when Mrs. Clinton talks about Obama's lack of experience. There was another gentleman from Illinios who had far less experience in government than Obama, and he did quite well because he knew how to surround himself with quality people.

    Abraham Lincoln's record:

    * 1832 - Defeated in run for Illinois State Legislature
    * 1833 - Failed in business
    * 1834 - Elected to Illinois State Legislature (success)
    * 1838 - Defeated in run for Illinois House Speaker
    * 1843 - Defeated in run for nomination for U.S. Congress
    * 1846 - Elected to Congress (success)
    * 1848 - Lost re-nomination
    * 1849 - Rejected for land officer position
    * 1854 - Defeated in run for U.S. Senate
    * 1856 - Defeated in run for nomination for Vice President
    * 1858 - Again defeated in run for U.S. Senate
    * 1860 - Elected President (success)
