List McCain's qualifications for President


Recommended Posts

There's a lot of negativity regarding Barack Obama on this website. Many threads devoted to Barack Obama and why he should or should not be the next President of the United States.

 

So...

 

Let's talk John McCain. I started a thread a few months ago asking, why should I vote for John McCain? I didn't get a good enough answer then, so I have decided to start this thread and see if anyone can convince me to vote for him now.

 

Here's you chance McCain supporters. Please refrain from bashing Barack Obama. I want to know the positive things that Senator McCain brings to the table.

J D if U Please did a pretty good job of listing McCain's qualifications in the Obama thread.

 

IMO, US Senators do not make good candidates for president. I prefer people who have executive experience, preferably in the private sector, but if not as governor of a medium to large state. McCain does have substantial leadership experience in the military, which is more than his opponent has going for him.

Your humor combined with your historical knowledge are equally impressive.

Barack's thread going on nearly three pages; McCain's with a dozen posts. Even on BGP, Barack has rock star status and poor John cannot get any attention. :D.

We conservatives are so disheartened that we have to vote for Senator McCain, even if he is a heroic American.
