I regularly listen to political debate. I subscribe to both the Fox News Sunday and McLaughlin Group podcasts. Quick tangent-- it always turns my stomach when I realize that Pat Buchanan is speaking for my side. However, I don't think I am informed or persuasive enough to really talk politics and especially to write about it in my blog where it could be scrutinized. I would rather discuss church politics (where I am a socialist) than government politics (where I probably border on libertarian).
But in this one entry I want to point out how John McCain can win this election. He doesn't need to keep harping on Obama's lack of experience, or his questionable associates. He doesn't even need to draw O as a liberal while painting himself as the moderate voice. He merely needs to continually remind people that Barack Obama is a lawyer. The ads need to ask: Would you rather vote for someone who has spent his young life as an attorney, or someone who spent his young life defending this country? After all many people respect a POW, but very few have anything nice to say about lawyers.
