    SEN. CLINTON SHOULD RUN AS AN INDEPENDENT SO SHE DOESN'T HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT JUDAS LIKE RICHARDSON AND MR. WRIGHT. IT WILL BE THE FIRST TIME IN AMERICAN HISTORY THAT AN INDEPENDENT CANDIDATE HAS BEEN ELECTED PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. WE DON'T WANT A RADICAL RACIST PREACHER'S PET IN THE WHITE HOUSE, DO WE? SO I SAY SEN. CLINTON SHOULD DISTANCE HERSELF FROM THE DEMOCRATS AND RUN AS AN INDEPENDENT. SHE MUST CONSIDER FOR THE BETTERMENT OF THIS COUNTRY.

    Well with the reaming Bush gave McCain in the 2000 primaries, I would have to say he must have come pretty darn close.

    But now he's McBush

    Probably got pretty close until he realized what the Democratic Party really stands for. Then he went back to rationality, common sense and individual rights.

    John McCain is not a republican. No different than voting for Hillary.

    Given his participation in instigating the Iraq invasion (see CBC Canada doc) McCain could not possibly run as a democrat.
