Vote Obama, forget McCain

In what alternative universe does Stephen Winkler reside ("Think before you vote," Letters, April 24)? Hillary Clinton is the Democratic party candidate and John McCain is a liberal Republican?

Not on this planet!

It is highly unlikely that Hillary will receive the nomination as it is mathematically impossible. The race is over! The sooner the Democratic nominee starts to bring out all of John McCain's drawbacks, the better.
Sen. McCain was one of the Keating Five in the savings and loan scandal. He has voted against equal pay for women. He has voted against a new G.I. Bill for our returning veterans. He has voted against requiring the CIA to abide by the Geneva Convention regarding torture.

He has voted against more assistance for New Orleans and embraced a minister who has said New Orleans got what it deserved. He has no problem with continuing our Iraq fiasco and even wants to expand on it.
Although he criticized the Bush tax cuts for the wealthy, he now wants to make them permanent. He is against any relief for homeowners in the current financial crisis.

Sen. McCain stood on the stage at the Republican Values Voter debate while the choir sang why God should not bless America. Sen. McCain may be a Vietnam War hero, but his definition of patriotism, and Mr. Winkler's, is woefully lacking.

Two thirds of Americans state that the country is on the wrong track.

More of the same policies that got us on that wrong track, as promoted by Sen. McCain, will only make the situation worse. Hillary will not be the candidate.

Vote Obama!
