Another Nightmare?

What will you do if we wake up in November to find our next president is John McCain?

I’m not sure I could mentally deal with that. To face four or eight more years of this national nightmare might just do me in. When bush won his second election and we found ourselves facing four more years of his hell, I wondered if we could make it through that. We did, but how much more can we take?

After reading this piece by Patrick Buchanan, I can clearly understand why even conservatives would prefer another president Clinton over McCain.

Don't even think it PoP. It would surely do me in. I personally think both Obama and Hillary could be considered Republican light and they are surely corporate Democrats but either would be better than McCain.

McCain would be very bad but then so would Romney. Hillary is not much better in my estimation and I am lukewarm at best on Obama.

Deep sigh. Happy super duper uber stupor Tuesday.

I think that a McCain presidency would be akin to a permanent or at least a 4 year stay at a Hyatt under renovation. True?

Could it be the neocons are complaining constantly about McCain so people will vote for this deranged old fossil.

More war torn years with another madman whi is senile to boot is a frightening thought.

Please don't bring up such thoughts first thing in the morning. Ugh.

I still think he can't get the nomination- the GOP won't let him. But we'll see...

I've had this fear in the back of my mind for a while now but was afraid to voice it.

On the one hand, I am glad you did bring it up, but on the hand, I have a strong desire to throw up.

All I could think of while reading this was "We haven't made it through YET..."

Do not Misunderestimate the ability of Dear President to fardleschnocker things up over the next 349 days.

It could happen. The Democrats are going to have either the first woman (with a lot of baggage) or an African-American (with very little experience) at the top of the ticket. I can already hear the Republican rallying cries.

Didn't McCain serve in Washington's Administration?

Isn't there some kind of law against him being President?

our family has made a pact to leave the u.s. if a repub wins in november.
even hillary winning could cause us to flee. we've had enough.

I think robin andrea has a really good point in that the US is totally not ready to elect a woman or an African-American male president. It just won't be allowed to happen. Brace yourselves.

McCain doesn't have a chance in hell of winning a national election. The guy can't get his facts straight, already admitted he doesn't know much about the economy, and is so boring when he talks that it's like sitting around listening to grandpa's stories. I wish I could see him have one of those temperamental melt-downs...that has to be funny.

Funny, I just made the same comment as Robin Andrea and XUP on another blog. I'm really not sure Americans will allow a black or female president...

I've seen somebody argue that at least McCain isn't pro-torture, which is true on a personal level, although he went along with some bad legislation on the issue from Cheney and the gang. On the other hand, I think McCain is more likely to start an unnecessary war than snake oil salesman and all-around scumbag Mitt Romney. So I dunno.

As much as the neocons and theocons are whining now, you can be certain that barring a 3rd party effort (which I doubt), they will goose-step behind him in November. While neither Clinton nor Obama are progressives, we need to support the winner, because neither of them would appoint another Roberts, Alito, Scalia or Thomas to SCOTUS. That would spell the end of rights and freedoms in the US for all but the super-rich, and that is exactly what McCain has promised to do.

John McCain has one big character flaw that us lefties need to exploit...

He was beaten kicked and insulted by Bush co...

How did he retaliate... by Kissing ASS!

Not the guy I want leading the country.

So he's as qualified as Bush?

mccain Guiliani would be the end of America! I have faith Obama will be elected if there are elections and he is not assassinated. It stinks but there are even much worse very real scenarios. Bush has yet to do his worst to us!

maybe i'm being naive, but i cannot imagine this country going for another hawk repub. i have a sense that we may be on a radical path of change - and not obama. for the dem's, i think it comes down to the women's vote.

i'm not one for extreme statements (yeah, right), but a hucka-idiot win would have me becoming an ex-patriate.

If people want to stop McCain, it is important to attack him at the issue that is helping him the most in the GOP primaries, his support for the war. Building opposition to the war will hurt McCain.

It is a possibility. Of all the Republicans he's the most electable because of his appeal to independents. That is why it is crucial for Obama to be the Democratic candidate as he can bring in independents and Hillary won't be able to.

If the thought of a McCain presidency depresses you, look carefully at his VP selection. A 72-yr old guy with cancer history, who blanks out during long questions, who can't keep his facts straight and seems bored or pissed off most of the time seems destined for a short term. I'm thinking he might go Huck for his Huckability to bring in the jeezus crowd. Heaven help us!

Not sure. But like it or not, life will go on.

The re-election of President Bush drove me to lose 1/3 of my faith in the people who make us this country. If McCain is elected to replace Bush, I imagine, another 1/3 would leave upon him taking the oath.

Turnout for Democrats has been very high at the caucuses, like two to one. I don't think that McCan can get in, even with a Diebold crowbar.
