Speaking of "what if", one of my liberal friends send me an e-mail the other day that included the following:

What if the Obamas had paraded five children across the stage,
including a three month old infant and an unwed, pregnant teenage
daughter?

What if John McCain was a former president of the Harvard Law Review?

What if Barack Obama finished fifth from the bottom of his graduating class?

What if McCain had only married once, at 20, and Obama was a divorcee?

What if Obama was the candidate who left his first wife after a severe
disfiguring car accident, when she no longer measured up to his
standards?

What if Obama had met his second wife in a bar and had a long affair
while he was still married?

What if Michelle Obama was the wife who not only became addicted to
painkillers but also acquired them illegally through her charitable
organization?

What if Cindy McCain graduated from Harvard?

What if Obama had been a member of the Keating Five? (The Keating
Five were five United States Senators accused of corruption in 1989,
igniting a major political scandal as part of the larger Saving and
Loan crisis of the late 1980s and early 1990s.)

What if McCain was a charismatic, eloquent speaker?

What if Obama couldn't read from a teleprompter?

What if Obama was the one who had military experience that included
discipline problems and a record of crashing seven planes?

What if Obama was the one who was known to display publicly, on many
occasions, a serious anger management problem?

What if Michelle Obama's family had made their money from beer distribution?

I can't vouch for the truth of all of the implicit statements underlying these items, but it's an interesting list.

McCain will forever rue the day he allowed his "advisors" to convince him to go with Palin over Lieberman. Had he gone with Lieberman he would have made the choice a helluva lot tougher for centrists(like myself).

As soon as he picked Palin I knew I'd be voting for Obama - not because of a potential Palin presidency(though that's damn compelling on it's own), but because of what it said about McCain's judgement.

What if McCain had a close friend who tried to blow the crap out of the Capitol?

what close friend ?

you seem to be incapable of grasping simple facts

this "close friend" just happened to be another member on a committee that obama had no control on other than his single vote - either work with the guy or resign from the committee & stop himself from doing any good

simple enough for you ?

He'd get a pass on that as well.

Even more folks would consider him "black enough", and would vote for him.
