Leadership! McCain has declared that things are bad enough to stop campaigning, and he is leading on this. I am so relieved.
I have been a grudging McCain supporter, until he picked Sarah Palin as his running mate. Then he had me, hook, line and sinker. The pink McCain/Palin stickers have been ordered, the RNC envelope has been filled out (just need to stick the check in there, a crucial step, yes).
But then the bottom fell out of the market last week and both our presidential candidates have done little to nothing. For a while there it looked like neither guy would even show up for the vote. I expected Obama to avoid a position, but the Maverick? I wanted him out in front, saying the hard thing, taking names and kicking some--well, you know. (And, by the way, my envelope sits unfilled...are you listening, RNC?)
Now he's leading, on to Washington! I'm looking forward to his trying some things, even if I don't agree with all of them. The next couple of weeks are looking up.
UPDATE: I really love this idea.
