Speaking of betting... I see that you can bet (in Vegas, of course) on an over-under on the number of the first player to score (currently at 43.5), among a bunch of other crazy things. On Super Tuesday all we bet is the future of our country.
And let's face it, that's what picking between these candidates is. A bet. Almost a blind bet. I say almost because although most of the candidates change their message every time they get their hair combed before an appearance (this may not apply to Mitt - that hair has got to be plastic coated).
Seriously, as I think about the candidates I keep asking...
- Will they fix out border?
- Will they get our fiscal house in order?
- Will they continue the war?
- Will they take on the terrorists?
- Will they protect the environment for future generations?
I won't tell anyone out there how to answer these questions, but I will say that for most of the candidates, they either keep changing their stance, or are so unclear that I can't figure out quite what their stance really is.
So given that, how did I choose to support McCain? McCain seems to be a man of principle. Seriously, it's that simple. But even given that I think McCain is honorable, that still doesn't guarantee that he'll be a good president. But at least I'll sleep soundly knowing that he'll try. I can't say the same for any of the others.
Oh, and one more thing... I hope that the team with the Manning loses.
