    Is McCain the guy on the right or left in this picture? I can't tell a difference.

    I hope Obama uses that picture in all of his ads for the general election.

    I can only imagine what McCain is thinking while taking that picture.

    McSame didnt vote against Webb's GI Bill ....he just didnt show up!

    He has missed 60% of all senate votes higher than any other senator...(except those who missed votes due to illness)

    This picture is priceless... he looks akward...like Bush has some rare desease and he doesnt want to catch it...

    Now if only we can unify the democratic party and focus on defeating this Bush Mini-Me...

    MCCAIN VOTED AGAINST WEBB'S GI BILL, OBAMA VOTED FOR THE VETERANS GI BILL. MCCAIN DIDN'T SHOW UP TO VOTE FOR VETERANS TO RECEIVE A STIMULOUS CHECK, OBAMA VOTED FOR VETERANS TO RECEIVE A STIMULOUS CHECK. MCCAIN HAS NEVER SUPPORTED VETERANS. DISGUSTING.

    John, you are great. We need you at this hour. CNN will tarnish your image, Barack will say it is third George Bush term. These are all jokes. CNN also wants to become a joke. Those liberals who comments here and shout 'Obama 08' are all jokers. I wonder if they will publish this one.

    If you put their pictues together and made on, it might end up looking like Nixon. Your right. That is one scarry picture and thought.

    The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results.

    Voting for McCain therefore makes you insane. It's the same thing we've been dealing with for the past 8 years.

    Anybody but McCain '08...ok well let's be real Obama '08!!!

  18. That's Reality

    kim portland, oregon – McCain voted against Webb's bill because it wasn't good enough. You need to start listening to some other media sources than just the liberal ones. McCain is the only candidate that has a clue about what is at stake during this unprecedented time of our nation. The liberals will destroy this country if they get their way. They don't even realize appeasement is bad policy.

    Poor John. He probably wants to puke every time Bush comes near him. They are as different as day and night. Bush = oil with no regard for the people or environment. McCain = integrity and experience for America's best interest.

    I think it's amazing the way John McCain has flip flopped on so many issues. Even so far back as being one of the last people in the entire country to agree to celebrate the life of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. with a nationally recognized holiday. Why didn't he think this man's life deserved to be recognized with a holiday? Why doesn't he want to be seen with his Commander In Chief? Why doesn't he want the entire country to know that they, he and George Bush, have many of the same ideas, ideals and policies? I would like for him to answer these questions.
