Obama answered the [debate] questions much better than McCain. He outlined the things he would do for the middle class. McCain didn’t even mention the middle class. McCain’s health-care plan doesn’t address folks with preexisting conditions. Five thousand dollars won’t buy you affordable insurance if you have a preexisting condition.
Obama looked more relaxed and presidential. He looked like a man who could inspire a nation and bring change. McCain looked old and tired. What scares me to death is his vice-presidential pick. Palin isn’t experienced enough to run the country, should something happen to McCain. McCain says he puts country first, but his VP pick says he puts his party base first.
