McCain's choice

The St Louis newspaper publishes a rousing endorsement for Obama and makes some great points.
It also must be said that Mr. Obama is right on the issues. He was right on the war in Iraq. He is right that all Americans deserve access to health care and right in his pragmatic approach to meeting that goal. He is right on tax policy, infrastructure investment, energy policy and environmental issues. He is right on American ideals.

John McCain has served his country well, but in the end, he may have wanted the presidency a little too much, so much that he has sacrificed some of the principles that made him a heroic figure in war and in peace. In every way possible, he has earned the right to retire.
Indeed, McCain has one last chance to repudiate the politics of hate and fear, and prove that he really would rather heal the divisions in our society than win a race. The choice he makes in these last three weeks will determine whether he's remembered as honorable man worthy of admiration or a sadly fallen hero who deserves little but scorn.

If the hysterical avalanche of slander overwhelming my in-box is any indication, he will be remembered as a man so desperate that he will - and did - say anything and everything no matter how transparently false and malignantly evil to get elected.

Other than the rare, soto voce comment, McCain has done nothing to repudiate the stunningly false accusations, investigations, insinuations and misrepresentations his agents and supporters are assaulting us with.

Agreed Fogg. His call for civility is as phony as his 'suspended' campaign.
