Thoughts on McCain on Letterman

Was watching McCain on Letterman last night, and came away with a feeling of missed opportunity. Personally, I would really like to see an election contest between two (or more) candidates who would both be good for the country, both uphold the ideas of the US, both have intelligent views and plans, with just differences in actual implementation or specifics. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like we're going to get a democratic candidate with any of those qualities, which is going to make the presidential race more of an ideological contest than a choice between two good options.

There are certainly things about McCain that I don't like (his buy-in to the global warming religion, for example). I wish there was another reasonable candidate that I could measure him against, and be conflicted choosing between them. But as it is, it looks like the 2008 election is going to be a choice between utter idiocy, socialism, empty rhetoric, economic disaster, massive inflation, foreign humanitarian disaster, selling legislation to lobbyists, and active destruction of America... and John McCain. That's not a choice, that's a question for Smarter than a 5th Grader; and it's a missed opportunity to make the election more than a referendum on how stupid the American voters really are.
