    Let me be clear- I do NOT support John McCain for President.

    That being said, I see a thread here denigrating McCain's experience. McCain (a democrat wearing an elephant suit) has, IMO, supported some of the worst legislation and policy in my life-time. However, McCain, unlike Obama, has much experience.

    Let's put Obama's experience into perspective:

    McCain spent more time as a prisoner of war, than Obama has spent as a U.S. Senator.
    When McCain was offered the opportunity to leave, he stayed behind with his men - unlike Obama who throws his men under the bus when they get in his way.

    Think about that.

    lets put this in perspective again

    What does being a POW do to help you be a good President?

    Bush had been only a Governor and had no expericance at all overseas or in security.

    Clinton was a Gov as well, same thing

    Ronny was a Actor then a Gov, no military or Foreign policy at all

    Only Bush I had any going in.

    That said while I respect McCain's experience , fact is I still believe he is wrong on some key issues. Obama was correct about the war, McCain was only correct about the Surge, that I supported myself. Obama would have kept us out in the first place , a position I would much rather be in.

    And during that time Obama did actually do some work on important security issues like securing Nukes
