I watched McCain’s speech to the Republican National Convention tonight.
There will always be some policies that he’ll promote with which I’ll disagree. I don’t expect to approve of his approach to illegal aliens, campaign finance “reform”, “global warming” or “climate change”, “bipartisanship”, etc. He is starting to make the right noises about drilling… now if he’ll add Anwar to his offshore drilling commitment, and nuclear energy as well. We’ll see on that. He occasionally makes populist sounding noises, and seemed to be suggesting a new entitlement program for people who have “lost jobs due to globalization”. That’s worrisome, but maybe he only means to suggest a different way of allocating current unemployment compensation funds.
Nevertheless, with all the likely policy disagreements I’ll have with him, I have nothing but respect for McCain the man, and I think he’ll do the right things on foreign policy, taxes, spending, judges, education, etc.
