    Ha Ha

    I actually really like McCain and am considering voting for him despite being a liberal. I think a moderate or indepent is exactly what this nation needs. I am sick of both parties. Hillary is my first choice but if she is not an option I hope Ron Paul or Nader can make a strong run.

    AZM can I ask you a question? If there was footage of Obama at a nursing home doing the two-step with a room full of old white women, would yuo consider it pandering?

    Why is an old man dancing news? This is the POLITICAL ticker isnt it? Guess you are seeing how well the old ticker can hold out? I seriously doubt though McCain dancing is going to get any younger voters but hey anything to try and win I guess.

    Can you set up a debate between Pastor Hagee and Catholic scholars about the question of cults ?

    John McCain owes this to his supporters.

    That video reminds me of the 1992 Vice-Presidental debate when Admiral James Stockdale gave his infamous "Why am I here?" line. McCain looks uncomfortable.

    It's just on most of these threads it's so venomous!!! Especially the Hillary Obama ones...

    I just want to voice my annoyance of being called an obamabot. It signifies I don't understand all of his policies or am less edjucated in some way. This is just not the case whatsoever. If anything, I have looked over every candidate more so than almost everyone I know. Who cares if McCain tries to dance, as long as he doesn't have a heart attack from all the excitement.

    Tomorrow I will cast my primary vote for Senator Clinton. You Obama supporters have really made my decision easy, you appear to be very shallow. All I read is "McCain's old" or "Hillary is a bully" and other such rot. I admire Senator Clinton for staying in the race despite momentum against her, it shows me that she'll stand up to any task to any problem. Maybe Senator McCain is over 70 years old, but both DD Eisenhower and Ronald Reagan we in their "golden years", but both did this country a great service.

    Maybe I might have voted different if you would have presented a more issue oriented arguement – you are proving your critics right, that all you know are bumper sticker slogans.

    McCain has more guts than any Obama supporters. He's the first Republican ever to go to this particular place in history and face the people his party has so neglected.

    It's too bad they didn't have the courage to show up to listen to what he had to say. I guess they've been brainwashed by a smooth talking guy who is going to disapoint them in the end.

    This video is hilarious! Notice how McCain stuggles to find the rhythm and clap along, ...he hangs on for about two claps, ...then he just gives up.

    This is about the funniest thing I have seen in a while.

    When I hear people say, "we need Hillary to turn this economy around," my stomach grinds! Do these people think that "all the conditions" that were present during the Clinton years (including getting Gore back as VP, and a Repulican House/Senate) will be back if Hillary were to be president? This is so sad!! Bill has helped ship all the jobs of the 90's overseas; no Clinton will ever bring back those jobs. The Clintons had this planned all along; now they are making the benefits from those past deals that they made ($109 million came from where?). The Clintons will only make more deals, if anyone ever gets them back to that White House. How stupid can some people be amazes me everyday!!

    People who votes for McCain hear this….A vote for McCain is a vote for Cindy McCain. He is too old to handle the day to day activities of the president. Cindy will have hands on everything and will literally control McCain's agenda. She will make Nancy Regan look like choir girl. Do you want to vote for Cindy? Think!

    McCain is taking a dance step in the right direction. Better to immerse yourself and try to drum up some votes than ignore demographics completely as so many Republicans do.
