If McCain wins the Rep seat for the election, then I'm going to vote Obama.

McCain isn't a Conservative and I won't be voting for him. Obama isn't one either but I like him better then McCain. Just wait and see what happens.

If McCain wins the primary -- and I'll be voting for him on Tuesday -- then I certainly will vote for him in the General.

Sounds like you would prefer a leftist over a moderate. Not my choice, but it is entirely your call, of course.

This is the reason I like Obama, he represents a fresh start. This country has been in a political civil war for 16 years and a Hillary win will only prolong it. Obama seems to be a happy medium for many people on both sides of the political rainbow. I still like Edwards best, but that ain't gonna happen.

Um, no. Not for me on the red side of the rainbow.

I know Obama's not for every red Ticomaya. I just think you will see a Democrat in the White House this round and the majority of reds are going to be less upset with an Obama win than with a Hillary win. I'm just sorry that if the last 8 years had to be Republican years, that McCain was not the Republican. I think he has good judgment overall and we would not be the mess we are today if he was at the helm. I know someone who recently saw him in person and mentioned he looked "sick" and "ancient". I think he was robbed of his opportunity 8 years ago in North Carolina and nothing is going to give it back to him.

I would certainly rather have Obama than Hillary, no doubt about it.

I voted for McCain 8 years ago too.

the more I see of Obama the more he worries me. He will not get my vote under any circumstances. I thought I would vote for him if he got the nod, but i cannot.

I wll write in someone so that I 'll have voted, which I consider my duty.

I heard you the first time. Petty attempts at insult don't make you look any smarter. Nor do they make the moronic **** you've been posting lately seem any more coherent.

Bear, seriously, look what choosing an "alternative" candidate did to us in 2000. If goddamned Ralph Nader didn't have the sheer egocentrism he did we wouldn't have had the ass in the White House for eight years. Please, even if you don't like Obama much, don't defect. Look at what happened the last time.

McCain used to be a moderate but he is not now. Seriously I don't understand why conservatives are not lapping him up. Oddly enough he is getting votes from anti-Iraq war republicans and he is a rabid Iraq war supporter and wants more wars and to stay in Iraq for another 100 years. He admits he don't understand economics and he proves it in his speeches. What is there to like for a libertarian except what he used to be?

McCain the Moderate is the only pol who actively criticized Bush tactics relative to Iraq and Afgan. So if national Security is an issue for you, I think McCain is the better choice than Obama.

McCain the Moderate voted against the Bush Tax Bill. No one is more fiscally conservative than I am and I would have voted against that tax bill if for no other reason, it includes the repeal of the Estate Tax. So if fiscal responsibility is your thing, McCain should be the better choice than Obama.

McCain the moderate is being somewhat soft on illegal immigration. Yet, Obama is no better in this regard.

Obama represents a "fresh start", he is an inspiring speaker. Not sure that is enough.

It is difficult to support someone who has stated many times he would run the National Security concerns of the United States through the UN as Obama has done.

I do not think Obama will "champion" his I WAS AGAINST THE WAR mantra if he wins the nomination. Yet, he put it out there for all to see.

I think McCain would be the man for National Security, even over Romney.

It wasn't a petty attempt at an insult it's a fact. the very fact you feel qualified to judge me as moronic because my points of view and opinions are radically different from yours proves it.

After furthere consideration I've decided i can't vote for Barack Obama at all and I certainly can't vote for ANY republican that's being offered so I will write in if that's how it shakes out.

You got a problem with that stick it whefe the sun don't shine... which could be top or bottom.

I can't argue there. But my distrust of Obama is real and runs deep. the guy is starting to creep me out just like bush did. He is the left wing george bush in my opinion and I can't bring myself to vote for that. I know I'm standing alone here but I don't care. This guy is no good for the country IMO.

And my reasons are exactly as I've already stated. He's an idealoge, I don't believe he will tolerate any deviance to his personal vision, and I don't think he's shown us his real face, because I don't think he's found it himself.

I'm not required to explain myself any further than that and my opinion has as much value as anyone elses. I was damn sure right about bush in 1999. to be fair, so were many others.
