    All you people whining about no compromise should have voted for John McCain.

    well, at least we would've had a nice set of tits to look at when the VP spoke.....but the country would still be a ****hole.
    it's not like mccain has true american leadership qualities, either.

    I don't even want to hear people BS and say they would have considered McCain except for Palin. She was hardly known, gave McCain a big boost in the polls, and held her own against Biden in the one VP debate. People didn't really hate her until after. McCain was the prototypical "reach across the aisle" guy, and has several years of practice to back it up. but the left called him Bush III and ran to the coattails of the great orator known as Obama thinking he would "change" things. 99% of liberals that voted for Obama have no claim to cry out for "compromise". That candidate ran, and they didn't vote for him.

    i agree. if anything, palin was all mccain had going for him. i didn't know of a single person who voted for mccain in the primary.
    not one. he was the worst candidate which could've possibly been chosen, which is exactly why the media gave him in-particular,
    the high rotation coverage of the gop candidates. it took a man as wishy-washy and sucky as john mccain to completely seal
    obama's victory, as soon as the candidates were appointed for election.

    That is not the impression I got from McCain during that election, he seemed like a guy who bent over backwards to appeal to the extreme members of the GOP. He sacrificed his views to get the nomination, and didn't run on his own beliefs IMO. I did not trust him.

    He decided not to "criticze" Obama....he believes the GW bype....he wanted Bush's "Immigration" Reform.....he made it clear he had "no use" for "real" Conservatives...you crack me up.....come to the light....

    Well I don't necessarily agree. In hindsight I don't like Palin as a VP, but at the time she did no damage to McCain and actually helped him. I think McCain would have been an ok president. I like that he is open to compromise, but he always compromised on things I didn't agree with him on like immigration and McCain-Feingold.

    I never saw McCain do anything that made me think he was appealing to any extreme segment of our population.

    The only reason I voted was because McCain picked Palin. Before Palin, I would have been happy for either of them to win. Since he picked Palin, I voted for Obama. The reason? It showed pure pandering, more than him regneggin on McCain of 2000.

    Except abandon every position he held in 2000.
