    Glad McCain won. A voice of reason has actually survived in the Republican. Radicals in BOTH parties have taken a hatchet job to reasonable voices. However, as long as there are McCains and Liebermans around, we all still have hope...

    You know, I may have some serious qualms with him, in the way he ran his campaign in 2008... but I have a lot of respect for the man.

    I still feel his prior record is really quite good, he has actually proven himself to be a bi-partisan, good politician in the past.

    I think as a man, he is a good man, and as I said I may not agree with his 2008 campaign.

    I think in the end, he should come out from his base GOP shell again and be more moderate, and he could do some real good, as he has done in the past.

    I was hoping McRino would lose, but I guess the people in his district want a Rino or they just fell for his tricks.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    At least people in Arizona can still recognize a man with integrity.

    And people like you are showing what is wrong with both parties today. It is either ideological purity or out. That is what is wrong with U.S. politics today. Reagan would not like this kind of talk. Remember the Big Tent? That is long gone because of people like you.

    McCain should have been tossed, Hayworth started strong but flaked out.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Huh uh. Sure. How about we're tired of Republican's that don't stand for Republican values? Notice, McCain went, for him, HARD RIGHT in this election cycle. That belies your notion of centrist/bi-partisan being what voters want.

    That was the McCain years ago. He's just as partisan and sneaky as the rest of them now. I think he's also mentally losing it.

    Lieberman, really? You mean the guy that does whatever it takes to win an election even if it means changing parties?

    Like I said McCain is just lucky he ran against a bad candidate.
