The following is completely subjective on my part; however it does begin to quantify a bit why I support John McCain.
As the table below shows, he’s not perfect. However when I look at his life and his career I see a pretty strong contender for the presidency.
Failure of his first marriage
USS Forrestal Incident
Keating 5 involvement
Amicable treatment of his ex-wife
Overall Senate Record
Gun Control Support
Support of Iraq
2000 Treatment at hands of Bush campaign
Overall Trust On Security Issues
I guess this shows that I like the guy 3x more than I dislike him – which feels about right. He’s also an interesting contrast to this Democratic presidential candidate.
