1. “Obama has worked with Republicans to effect change”

    I would like to see at least ONE example where Obama worked to create a consensus with Republicans on a single CRITICAL or DIVISIVE issue.

  2. In ’05, he co-sponsored, with McCain, the Secure America and Orderly Immigration Act; expanded the Nunn-Lugar cooperative threat reduction; and provided, via the Coburn-Obama Transparency Act, which enumerates breakdowns of federal spending.

    So there’s three.

  3. Well, I know Obama has his fingerprints on some legislation, but my question goes to Critical or Divisive issues. Compared to McCain, I think McCain reaches out on significant issues to create a consensus much more than Obama, a.k.a. most liberal Senator. Don’t jump on that Obama bandwagon just yet, because people will realize that they are being taken for a ride.

  4. Immigration, secure borders, and federal spending aren’t “critical” and/or “divisive” issues? Where the Hell do you live, Jay?

  5. I don’t think you can call legislation regarding anti-personnel mines non-‘critical’ unless you’ve actually stepped on one and thought it no big deal. And Obama didn’t just have his “fingerprints” on that SAOI act (which I notice is a subject in which you’re interested); he co-sponsored it. With your darling McCain.

  6. Maybe I’m not being clear. When has Obama ever done anything that went against the Dem party establishment because it was the right thing to do for this country? (I think we can concede that the Dems have always been against the war in Iraq by the way.) McCain puts this coutry before party politics, and that’s why I admire him.

  7. GOTHAMGIRL

    I think Obama’s “lack of experience” could mean that he hasn’t been ruined yet by the political machine of this country. He seems down to earth and easy to relate to. Hillary looks like she has constipation. Hey, did you know the little girl in that Hillary phone call add is now 17 and a avid Obama fan?

    All three canidates voted for that stupid 700 foot wall that is both a waste of money and inaffective. However, the very very conservative hate McCain just as much as Obama. I think this is a good thing as the very very conservative scare me. I like both canidates. This is the first time in a long while that either canidate would be a good choice. If Hillary gets the democratic ticket though, it would be the first time in a long time that a republican was running against some one that had the ability to cause the appocalipse.
