An Obama supporter actually liked McCain in a speech the other night because he talked about the issues

I've been thinking more and more about what an Obama supporter told me recently. It is possible that other Obama supporters are thinking along the same lines, and that perhaps, there may be a few Obama supporters, who may just switch to McCain. There may be a few who 'actually liked him in a speech the other night because he talked about the issues'. And that might just be enough to push McCain over the finish line.

Sure, there will still be some that don't like Palin, but perhaps not all will think that way. Here is another thing to think about. Even if McCain does win, what kind of government will we have? The Democrats will still likely control both the House of Representatives and the Senate. Do you think they will change just because McCain is president? No.

So we will have more of the same. Except for one thing. Government will not grow like it would under Obama. At least not as much. And: Obama will have 4 years to mature. He will be a better candidate in 4 years. He will likely moderate his vote, because it is his vote that got him in trouble this time around. A 97% liberal vote is not a good platform. But now he has 4 years to turn that into a 79% party line vote, similar to McCain's record, only from the other side of the isle. If that is the case, if Obama moderates, he will probably win in 4 years. Just my 2 cents worth.
