I am leaning for McCain because I can not vote for Clinton or Obama (Osama) due to the Democratic party policies.

Those in chanrge of Mr. Chafee's party is responsible for the deaths of hundreds of thousands of innocent people. He wasn't the worst Bush-enabler, but he was one. He could have quit the Republican party, and he could have worked to get Bush, Cheney, and the other war criminals out of office. But he didn't. He should think long and hard about his complicity in this criminal administration.

I like to suggest that Mr. Chafee read “Defeat” by Jonathan steele. He may learn about the Iraq.

Cheney betrayed you by confiding in 2000 that he was "GETTING OUT OF KYOTO?"

Thanks for the laugh -- sounds like Clinton
