BARACK OBAMA IS COOL AND CEREBRAL . THOSE ARE QUALITIES THAT I WOULD PREFER THE PRESIDENT HAVE, PARTICULARLY IN A CRISIS.
What experience has John McCain REALLY had? He has been on some Senate committees where they sit around and talk about things. OK he was commanding officer of a training squadron for a year in Florida in 1976.Thjat is the only period in which he actually had to make something go.
Obama had NO experience in big time campaigning. (Some races for Illinois State Senate and against Alan Keyes for US Senate) BUT he beat both Bill and Hillary Clinton for the nomination. SO OBAMA IS A FAST LEARNER.
So when push comes to shove, I will take someone who is cool and cerebral over a superstitious compulsive gambler with an anger management problem.
I think that better decisions can be made if superstitions, love of gambling and anger are not part of the decision-making process.
