Campaign Updates

Some recent news I thought you might like to read posted below (from Republican Candidates). Love the endorsements that are coming in! I find it interesting that the press is making such a big deal out of Colin Powell yet they've ignored the other four Secretary of States who've endorsed John McCain, they've ignored all the retired Admirals, Generals, and others who've endorsed him. I understand that Colin Powell is "hot" news because he's a Republican in name (only), but I don't think they'd have had him on Meet the Press for the length of time they did yesterday if he'd been endorsing John McCain. He'd have been a short blurb, ho hum.

John McCain: "I started turning it around the other night when we challenged Senator Obama's words. He is the most eloquent person I've ever known in politics. But he said he would on offshore drilling, he would, quote, 'consider it,' when he made several other statements that were clearly equivocation....

The Columbus Dispatch Endorses John McCain
"McCain's Democratic opponent, Illinois Sen. Barack Obama, is a rousing motivational speaker, but his experience and achievements -- eight years in the Illinois Legislature and less than four in the U.S. Senate -- do not stand comparison with McCain's. A resume containing so little evidence of leadership and accomplishment leaves in question Obama's ability to handle the most responsible and difficult job in the world...

"Another View: McCain The Stronger Candidate" (Philadelphia Inquirer)
"No one is better prepared than John McCain to serve as commander in chief and lead the country as it seeks successful outcomes in both Iraq and Afghanistan, and to work with Pakistan to help kill or capture the perpetrators of 9/11.
