I appreciate McCain's candor compared to the phoniness that comes from almost every other politician - especially Romney - and even though I disagree with his stance on many things, knowing (well, thinking) that he will say what's on his mind is his appeal to me. I'm rooting for him.

The biggest tragedy is the "insurgence" (no pun intended) of Mike Huckabee. God help us if he wins (no pun intended again).

I totally agree. The far right scares the crap out of me :-o

alright Dray - now you have me confused. If you are a Libertarian - as am I - then you must know they are the far right - by definition. Libertarians are much further right than republicans. Maybe you are making the mistake of labeling a Christian as being "far right" as the media and the left often try and do? Maybe religious people are listed as far right because of their morals, but arent left/right descriptions usually based more on economics than morals?

As far as Huckabee is concerned, I wont vote for him either, but its because of his stances. He's pretty far to the left on a number of issues.

The terms Left & Right are not usually used to describe economic stances more than social stances. And currently it is quite the opposite. I think most people right now would associate the left with socially progressive and the right with socially conservative. This is not a mistake by the media since these terms are not absolute. The reason people don't call Libertarians far right is because it would be misleading.

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey
