Still hopeful

It occurred to me recently that there is a chance -- probably about 50/50 -- that Obama might lose, and McCain and (ugh) Palin would be in power. True, Congress is Democratic right now, but it would mean that the leaders of our country would, once again, be Republican. As much as I'm not interested in McCain being president, at least he isn't as stupid as Bush. And I think he is a more reasonable man, a bit more thoughtful.

I'm still hopeful, though, about Obama. A few things are giving me hope.

Apparently, yesterday McCain appeared on The View, and the women there really gave him the business. You can read about it here and here, and see some of it on video. I loved when McCain said that Roe v. Wade was a mistake, and the audience booed him. I loved it when he said that the Constitution needs to be interpreted as the founders intended, and Whoopie Goldberg asked him if he wanted to return her to slavery. Wow. I haven't seen Charlie Gibson's interview of Sarah Palin, but apparently he wasn't tough enough with her. I am hopeful that, in spite of all the rhetoric, when people actually hear what McCain and Palin have to say, they will realize that Obama is the right choice. I hope.
