The Myth of Electability January 30, 2008

Posted by Tim in Uncategorized.

I’m kinda tired of the old pundits explaining that the rush to Sen. John McCain is about “electability”.  Certainly, that is a concern.  But what I hear from voters and polls is a genuine and passionate concern about the candidates’ (on both sides) positions and character.  I just read an article about Mr. McCain’s victory, and one comment refuted this argument by asking why the electorate would choose “liberal light” if they could simply have Hillary.

The premise of that question is simply false, and I am living proof.  I prefer the Democratic party to the Republican party, but I prefer McCain to Hillary Clinton, my second choice.  My favor of McCain is not about electability.  It is about integrity first, and political stances second.
