Nothing wrong with that in this situation.
Would you rather have a healthy younger president, or a senile old bat who could keel over at any moment.

Also, here is alittle article that I just started reading

The problem with McCain is that he's trying to apply a baby boomer solution to a 21st century problem. Obama on the other hand has a bunch of fresh new ideas.

These candidates give us no choice. They are both wrong for America! Our vote will be against the other one, not a vote for a candidate. Obama wants to tax and spend and McCain wants to borrow money, raise our national debt and put it on our future generations to pay it back. Obama is the most liberal politician in the senate and has no experience on Foreign Policy. McCain,s Foreign Policy is from The Vietnam War. He is too old and believes we can win the war in Iraq. God help us. The media wanted Obama to run and the peoples' choice was negated. There are no easy decisions. As a nation running scared we are going to allow drilling in Alaska. God Forbid!. We have to sacrifice now in spending, tighten our belts, hunker down, get serious. Our legacy to our future generations look mighty grim, if we don't change our entitlement thinging. One of the most immportant responsibilities our next pesident will face is picking supreme court judges. The direction of our country depends on it.. I trust McCain with that decision and for that reason, I will vote for him.saw their TV ads in http://pollclash.com

Actually, no, he doesn't. He wants to cut a lot of taxes. The super-rich will feel the blow, but 95% of working families woudl see a reduction in taxes.

And he wants to cut military expanses. Can't beat that as far as savings.

Yet his Vp and his advisors do. He's smart enough to pick it up quickly. At the debate on CNN, he was handling it like a pro.

Er, no. The media, along with everybody else, didn't know who Obama was. And it's not the media's fault that millions of Americans let themselves be brainwashed.

So after all that, you're basing your vote on that fact that you want a conservative Supreme Court?

That's wrong on two levels. One, because that's very shallow of you. But mroe importantly, the Supreme Court needs balance. Making it very conservative destroys that balance.

What little balance actually remains in the US Supreme Court...

You seem to be a fiscal conservative . . . but your main issue is the supreme court?

How will future generations fair if they overturn Roe v. Wade?

I'll tell you one thing about that future generation: There will be a lot more people in it.

Can Roe V. Wade be overturned? It's precedent now and would take an Act to change that (or whatever the US equivalent is).

Not that the law will stop the sods.

As I understand it, it only takes a willing court to overturn precedent. That's why the supreme court is such a hot botton issue here in the states.
