LOL, so we would have had McCain?
Frankly the whole world deserves hell. God is refraining from that for the time being. But there is less grace shown through Obama than would be through John McCain. And Sarah Palin would be coming up in 2012 — McCain was old enough that he only planned to serve one term.
The only time a completely meritorious person will have the government on his shoulders, it won’t happen through a vote.
