As much as Senator McCain would like to, he can’t separate himself from the past 12 years, since he has been in Congress for the last 28 years and supported virtually all of Bush’s policies. Consider also that his voter base continues to be the most extreme of the Republican party. McCain’s pick of Sarah Palin is only one decision clearly showing his inclination to the more extreme right. Also, McCain has displayed a consistent lack of substantial support for energy independence, healthcare reform, global warming and education reform.
Barack Obama on the other hand has consistently outlined pragmatic and realistic programs to deal with these important issues, all with an eye toward fiscal responsibility. He has displayed sound judgment from his courageous and up-front opposition to the Iraq war to the financial rescue plan and everything in between. Barack Obama has the intelligence, judgment, steady calm, and integrity to put America back on the right track. Colin Powell thinks Barack Obama will be a “transformational” and “exceptional” President, and that is exactly what America needs at this time.
