I have sat in a room with this man - he is smart - funny - articulate - and very very soft spoken.

He has a future - if we give him a change to speak his own mind.

Is this a prerequisite for our politicians now.

his willingness to discuss his troubled past - which includes alcohol and cocaine addictions

Unless I'm mistaken, something about his "family values" left a lot to be desired, too.

Actor Kelsey Grammer has decided to follow in the footsteps of Arnold Schwarzenegger

What an awful way to phrase that. We have no evidence that the man is going to sell uss down the road on every issue we care about.

I've never met him but have watched him interviewed, I came away with the same assessment.

Especially the stripper question, maybe he's a changed man now. It would be great to see him take on Boxer

He's really turned that all around since he's stopped drinking. I've read it was a Catholic priest who helped Grammer give up the booze and settle down. I think he's genuinely reformed his life.

"Especially the stripper question, maybe he's a changed man now. It would be great to see him take on Boxer."

Stripper and Boxer should never be used in the same sentence.

Have heard that he was raised by his grandfather -- a military man. Not sure if it's true...

Oops, I meant same thought process.

He'll probably be ripped apart by the ivory tower snipers for being a "RINO" before he gets a chance to open his mouth.

My John McCain (up close and personal) story, from the 2000 South Carolina Primary.

Greenville SC - the 2000 Presidential primary - John McCain had just beaten ‘W’ in the NH primary and the “Straight Talk Express” rolled into South Carolina.

I was a McCain supporter - positive that he was the real deal.

I drove to a McCain speech and public appearance. It was a day I will never forget as long as I live.

That day I witnessed John McCain behave unlike any appearance I had ever seen on TV - the man was unhinged.

After a 15 minute canned speech - he decided to address his competition in the primary - George W. Bush. He did so by beginning with, “I am Luke Skywalker, and my opponents are members of the Empire. Together we will form the rebellion and defeat Darth Vadar”. He yelled this - first pumping - his voice full of anger - his face - beet red - and his eyes - well - they were scary.

The crowd instantly went from supportive - to bewildered.

He obviously didn’t pick up on the mood change - because he went on for another 5 minutes - ranting and raving about how everyone was lying about his record - his views - and he, “wasn’t going to take it any more” (remember the movie Network).

It was surreal.

When he finished - and with the prodding of an aid - he left the stage, while we in the crowd just stood there - stunned - and honestly - completely confused.

I asked a woman next to me: “what the hell just happened?” She answered: “that man is freaking nuts!”

I came home - walked in the house - sat on the couch and just looked at the wall. I suddenly realized - the man pushed on television - was not the man at all.

I have told this story many times - to many people - and I have heard the same story told back to me by others who have seen similar John McCain episodes.

I am not given to criticize anyone lightly ladies and gentlemen.

I am sure John McCain is a good man - but listen to me - and please believe me.

JOHN MCCAIN is NOT FIT TO LEAD THIS NATION.

John McCain is unstable. John McCain is freaking nuts!

Teddy Kennedy is STILL a drunk, and it doesn't stop him from being re-elected ad infinitum.
