good question. I'll be honest, even though it may expose a lot about me. :)

McCain -- can't raise his arms to brush his own hair (I read this somewhere; is it true?)

Obama -- Black/cute in a Denzel Washington-almost sort of way.

Democracy is in good hands, baby!

Muslim? Hopefully this is the 3 percent that don't know how to vote.

Agreed - Obama is not Muslim - unfortunately that is not a rumor that seems to be squelched easily.

McCain - Hero, old, integrity

Obama - Young, slick, dishonest

I definitely think that McCain is the better candidate, but not based on rumors and inuendo - strictly based on actions, words and policy.

Why dishonest?

I would like to know why is McCain considered an insider and Obama an outsider? They are both senators. Doesn't that make them both insiders?? The difference is one is an experienced insider and the other in an inexperienced insider.
