Honor and duty? From the man who had multiple affairs and cheated on his wife and mother of his children with his current spouse? You detailed his personal life but omitted that detail. And please let me know how being a POW qualifies someone to fix the economy, make decisions about authorizations to go to bogus wars like Iraq, create a viable health insurance system, and improve our schools and infrastructure. Don't forget to tell me too how having military relatives gives McCain the know-how to make us energy efficient, eliminate tax breaks for the wealthy, and stop rewarding businesses that go overseas.

As for abortion, I support a woman's right to choose. Period. If you don't like abortion, don't have one. Only white abortion clinics get bombed. The abortion clinic in a state where I worked used federal funds to give black and hispanic women abortions. No bomb threats, no guards, no fake appointments, no demonstrators, ever. If only non-white woman had abortions, there would not be a right to life movement. How many black babies have you adopted? None? Then shut up. John McCain says that we don't need health insurance; we should "just jog". Do you realize that Obama supports providing health care universally for every unwanted baby?

Would you still be such a vocal opponent of abortion if only blacks and immigrants had them? Be honest. Listen, like Senator Obama says, if you disagree about life starting at conception, then fine. We can't argue any further. Then you should vote McCain. But be fair in your comparisons about their family lives, their political experience (Barack was in the Illinois state senate for 8 years before becoming a US senator), their formal education, or their judgment. Vote for the person you want based on issues, not on identity, race, or alleged religion. And for God's sake, don't use Obama's middle name if you don't use anyone else's. Be careful. McCain's middle name could have been Adolf. And what difference would that have made?
